Product Description:

In their third collaboration, Cohn and Levithan present another clever New York romance. Levithan writes the chapters narrated by Dash, a “bookish” 16-year-old spending Christmas break alone. He finds a red moleskin notebook amid the shelves of the Strand bookstore. “Are you going to be playing for the pure thrill of unreluctant desire.” asks Cohn’s Lily in the first coded message of the notebook, with an invitation to respond. Lily is aglow with the yuletide and devastated that her parents are spending the holidays in Fiji. Armed with anonymity, Dash and Lily exchange the notebook in various locations around the Big Apple, filling it with their greatest hopes and deepest fears, and ultimately find themselves falling in love. Not surprisingly, the young pair’s perceptions of each other don’t entirely reflect reality; Dash’s ex asks if he is in love with the girl writing in the book or the girl he is picturing in his head. The spirit of the season amplifies Dash and Lily’s loneliness and heightens the connexion between them, in another surefire hit from the creators of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist (2006). Grades 9-12. --Courtney Jones --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Rachel Cohn & David Levithan have written three books together. Their first, Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, was made into a movie starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings, directed by Peter Sollett. Their second, Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List, was named a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age. For their third book, Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, David wrote Dash's chapters and Rachel wrote Lily's. Although they did not pass the chapters back and forth in a red Moleskine notebook, they did email them to each other without planning anything out beforehand. That's the way they work. Rachel's previous books include Gingerbread, Shrimp, Cupcake, You Know Where to Find Me, and Very LeFreak. David's previous books include Boy Meets Boy, The Realm of Possibility, Are We There Yet?, Wide Awake, Love Is the Higher Law, and How They Met, and Other Stories. For more information about Rachel and David, you can find them at RachelCohn.com and DavidLevithan.com, respectively. You may also catch them in the aisles at the Strand. From the Hardcover edition.

I found it hard to engage in the story and wasn't really into it until the halfway mark (and even then I felt restless while reading it ~ as if waiting for some awesome to happen). Having said that ~ I think this will make a cute and fun movie (it has been optioned).

Also, I wanted some fun and wild dares while roaming around New York at Christmas and I expected a romance (a hip, funky one) and I guess it all just played out differently to what I imagined.

Some of the lines were cute/funny but then sometimes it felt a touch try-hard and choreographed rather than real.
