Cover Reveal: Crossed by Ally Condie and Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Alright, so I loved, loved, loved Matched by Ally Condie (see my review here) and have been waiting for the sequel Crossed's cover reveal. AND IT'S FINALLY ARRIVED!!

Love it! I love the similarity between this cover and Matched. But I thought it would look something like this. Predictable in a way, but very nice. And here's what it's about:

In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky--taken by the Society to his certain death--only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia's quest leads her to a question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellions, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander--who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia's heart--change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.

I've never actually read Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, but I've heard that it is just adorable and amazing and I really want to read it. Then, today, I saw the adorable cover of the companion novel, Lola and the Boy Next Door:

It looks so sweet, and I love how the model has purple hair. And it sounds so cute, too!

For budding costume designer Lola Nolan, the more outrageous the outfit--more sparkly, more fun, more wild--the better. But even though Lola's style is outrageous, she's a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins move back into the house next door.

When the family returns and Cricket--a gifted inventor and engineer--steps out from his twin sister's shadow and back into Lola's life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feeling for the boy next door
Wow! And now for the release dates (because they just can't have these come out tomorrow...)
Crossed is released November 1, 2011
Lola and the Boy Next Door is released September 29, 2011
Happy reading!
