Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David LevithanThursday, January 10, 2013
“I’ve left some clues for you.If you want them, turn the page.If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please.”Lily, in hopes a boy might find it, left a red notebook in the Strand, a bookstore in NYC. In the red notebook is a series of dares and when Dash finds the notebook, he completes all of them. Lily and Dash begin their relationship through words, a conversation within Lily’s notebook. Only fate will decide if they will meet and become friends.
So begins the latest whirlwind romance from the bestselling authors ofNick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? Or are Dash and Lily only destined to trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York? Could their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions? Or will they be a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?
Rachel Cohn and David Levithan have written a love story that will have readers perusing bookstore shelves, looking and longing for a love (and a red notebook) of their own.--Goodreads
During the holiday season, I was in the mind to read some cutesy, chick lit and someone recommended I read Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares. It’s the prefect book for the holidays, I was told and, so I dived right in to it.
“Imagine this:You’re in your favorite bookstore, scanning the shelves.”-Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, p. 1
Rated PG for silly and cute scenes.
