Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares

“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.”

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
~~~Do you ever anticipate something for so long. Wait days, weeks, and months and when it finally get it you’re so overjoyed.And you convince yourself that nothing you’ve waited for and anticipated for so long could be anything less than purely epic? That’s how I felt when I got this book. 

Lily is an excited girl. Despite her odd appearance and seemingly slightly shallow outside she is a profound young woman. And I like to think I see myself in her. She is so interesting and such a girl. 
Dear Dash, 
 I must say, I cannot admit to ever really liking a hipster. Their entire superficial cover make my entirely disinterested. But you, Dash,have altered my opinion if only in this one case. You with your thoughtful profoundness and high quotability. (which is so Levithan Esque) I cannot ignore my wish that I could converse with you through notebooking. 

Rachel Cohn and David Levithan have lived up to all realistic expectations I gave them. And I truly believe that this book will grow on me more and more over time. So with this last thought I will leave you; I really want a red moleskin journal.
