Next Door Boys by Jolene B. Perry - Review and Giveaway

The Next Door Boys By Jolene B. Perry GIVEAWAY!
Review by KRWLucy

Leigh is just a trying to be a normal teen living a normal life. However, she is recovering from Ovarian Cancer. She is cancer free, and has convinced her parents to let her roam free into the college her experience. (Her brother lives next door, so they really have nothing to fret about)

At times Leigh gets weak, and is having problems staying awake. She doesn't worry about it much as she doesn't want to be an outsider.

Along the journey she meets some guys.....  (NO I WON'T SPILL THE BEANS!!)

When I started reading the book, I didn't realize that religion was a big part of the book. Once doing some research I learned why the temple was a big part of the book. I'm glad I stuck with it, as I couldn't put it down!!!

I was able to connect with the characters which is a big thing for me. I am very good at forgetting characters, but with this I didn't! I kept thinking of them after I finished the book. I keep making predictions on what happens in the next book!

I'm very impatient when it comes to books, so I'm dying to know when the next one comes out! I was almost not sure there was going to be a next one. It left me on a cliffhanger so after doing much research, I saw there was one, I screamed YES! I hope it comes out soon!! (It is called Left to Love)

I would like to thank Net Galley, and Cedarfort for letting me have the opportunity to read this book.

~Loving to Read One Step at a Time


  1. This book reminds me a little of Ever, After Ever by Jordan Sonnenblick. It's also about cancer survivors who are in high school. It's a book that I loved and cried and then read again. I highly recommend.

  2. My most unexpected read has to be Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves. Someone told me it was about a girl running away and gets caught up in a town full of ghosts. So not how it was, it had weird monsters and the like.

    This book, The Next Door Boys, was an amzing read, would love to have a hardcopy of it.

  3. I also tweeted about the giveaway!/JumpIntoBooks/status/144521626090872832

  4. Wow - Thanks for tweeting me - I'm glad I found your site :D

    Thanks SO much.

    I SHOULD hear this week on timing for book two. Thanks SO much.

    And even though my comment should not count as an entry - my most unexpectedly good read lately was a self-pubbed book called Loving Emily. I was leery, but it turned into a fab read.

    Thanks again for the review :D

  5. My most unexpected read was The Read Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease. Because of him, my other unexpected read was the Harry Potter series. Trelease convinced me to read at least one Harry book, even if I didn't like fantasy books. A simple statement--everyone should know what a muggle was--got me to open that first book. And the rest, as they say is history.

  6. I also tweeted the giveaway @mrsday75

  7. My most unexpected book was Stone Fox. There was a part in that book that blew me away like no other! I thought I was going to have to go for therapy! :)


  8. I tweeted about your giveway. Pick me, pick me!! :)
