“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.

Dash and Lily. They’re two different people, living two different lives. But they just might have a mutual “friend”. This is the story of how a red moleskin notebook brings them together. Coincidentally and Destiny-tally?:)

This is the PERFECT Christmas/Holiday Read. It starts on the 21st of December (when I started reading it!) and goes through New Year’s Day! It brings out the best of the holiday spirit – Lily is full of generosity! But Dash is who stole my heart! Oh, you cynical self proclaiming word-nerd, how you stole my heart! Some people might still think Dash is “snarly” but I enjoyed his dry sarcastic ways! And the audiobook really brought out Dash’s humor.

If you got gift cards during this holiday season, make sure you use it to get this book! It really is a great winter read!:)
