“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 of Nick & 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.
This book was a cute and quick read just in time for Christmas. I have heard numerous things about it and decided I needed to see what the fuss was all about.
This book goes back and forth between Dash and Lily. Two strangers...one red notebook...and dares. Dash finds this red notebook and there is a note in it in girls hand writing...challenging and daring the reader to continue reading and follow clues.
Dash, having nothing better to do on his Christmas break, accepts said challenge. They leave the red notebook in places and send them on challenges and hunts...getting to know each other through this book of dares.
Lily is an awkward 16 yr old left alone with her brother for Christmas and is in need of something to do. When she see's that her challenge has been accepted, she sends this challenger on many quests and writes to him back and they embark on this journey.
This, like I said, was a cute read. Very creative and loveable. I rated this 4 stars because it isn't something that I think I will read again. It was well written and had an engaging story line, just not something that I can relate to at my age.
I would recommend this because it was a good Christmas read and helps keep the spirit of Christmas alive.
I gave this ♥♥♥♥ out of ♥♥♥♥♥ on Goodreads.
