In their third collaboration, Cohn and Levithan present another clever New York romance. Levithan writes the chapters narrated by Dash, a Ã¢ÂÂbookishÃ¢ÂÂ 16-year-old spending Christmas break alone. He finds a red moleskin notebook amid the shelves of the Strand bookstore. Ã¢ÂÂAre you going to be playing for the pure thrill of unreluctant desire.Ã¢ÂÂ asks CohnÃ¢ÂÂs 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 pairÃ¢ÂÂs perceptions of each other donÃ¢ÂÂt entirely reflect reality; DashÃ¢ÂÂs 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 LilyÃ¢ÂÂs loneliness and heightens the connexion between them, in another surefire hit from the creators of Nick and NorahÃ¢ÂÂs 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.
