Great book. Lola is a positive role model. When a relationship needs to be broken, she knows when to break it. She's also really creative and inspirational for girls with artistic and creative sides. Her boyfriend, Max, is in a hard rock band, smokes and I think drinks at one point. When Lola breaks up with him, he yells insults at her. Cricket, Lola's neighbor, loves her, and she eventually realizes that she loves him. Lola has gay fathers, and her mom had her at a very young age, so she gave her to her brother, Lola's uncle/dad, and is very troubled throughout most of the book. Cricket and Lola end up sleeping together, but not because they've been making out or had sex, it's an appropriate reason. There's kissing, humor, and many other things that happen in this book. A great romance novel for pre-teens and teens to enjoy. It's the sequel to Anna and the French Kiss.
