Book review |Lola and the boy next door

I have something to tell you.  Story.

Once upon a time, there was a girl who talked to the moon. And she was mysterious and she was perfect, in that way that girls who talk to moons are. In the house next door, there lived a boy. And the boy watched the girl grow more and more perfect, more beautiful with each passing year. He watched her her watch the moon. And he began to wonder if the moon would help him unravel the mystery of the beautiful girl. So the boy looked into the sky. But he couldn’t concentrate on the moon. He was too distracted by stars. And it didn’t matter how many songs or poems had already been written about them, because whenever he thought about the girl, the stars shone brighter. As if the she were the one keeping them illuminated.


One day, the boy had to move away. He couldn’t bring the girl with him, so he brought the stars. When he’d look out his window at night, he would start with one. One star. And the would make a wish on it, wish would be her name.

At the sound of her name, a second star would appear. And then he’d wish her name again, and the stars would double into four. And four became eight, and eight became sixteen, and so on, in the greatest mathematical equation the universe had ever seen.And by the time an hour had passed, the sky would be filled with so many stars that it wold be filled with so many stars that it would wake his neighbors. People wondered who’d turned on the floodlights.

The boy did. By thinking about the girl.

My eyes open, and my heart is in my throat. “Cricket… I’m not that”.

He stops pinning my hair. “What do you mean?”

“You’ve built up this idea about me, this deal, but I’m not that person. I;m not perfect. I am far from perfect. I’m not worth such a beautiful story.”


“Lola.You are the story.”

“But a story is just that. It isn’t the truth.”

Cricket returns to his work.The pink rose are added.

“I know you aren’t perfect.But it’s a person’s imperfections that make them perfect for someone else.

Ямар гоё ном болохыг дээрхийг уншаад ойлгосон байх. Энэ хэсгийг уншчихаад зөндөө уйлж билээ. Уншиж байсан ийм төрлийн номнуудаас хамгийн гоё төгсгөлтэй нь энэ ном гэж дүгнэсэн.

Бас энэ дууг сонсоод үзээрэй.  Крикет цонхоор хараад Лола-г санаж байхдаа яг энэ дууг сонсдог байсан байх аа. Бүр яг шүү.
