It's Review Day for The Boys Next Door

From Paperback Reader: "The problem with writing a popular first novel is that the second novel will always be burdened with the inevitable comparisons. Will the dialogue be as funny or true? Will the characters be as vivid? The first novel creates certain standards which readers expect the second to meet or exceed. Such is the massive task for The Boys Next Door, by Jennifer Echols, the author of last year’s National Readers’ Choice Award-winning Young Adult novel, Major Crush. It matters not that Boys stars brand new characters, or that it has nothing to do with Crush’s band geek world, the challenge to produce a novel that surpasses the first remains."

WELL, DID SHE DO IT???
