Love in Writing

Can you fall in love without ever seeing a person? Dash and Lily are starting to think so, with the help of Dash and Lily's Book of Dares, by Rachel Cohn and David Levithin.

Dash and Lily are two New York City teenagers, who've never met and aren't likely to. Both are on their own and at loose ends for Christmas. Then Dash finds Lily's notebook in the Strand bookshop, and what follows is a whirlwind romance on paper, as they dare each other to take on new and frightening experiences. Sheltered Lily goes to a wild concert. Cynical Dash has to visit Santa. Along the way, they realize that the perfect person may not exist, but sometimes you can get the person who is perfect for you.

Sweet, witty, and with unexpected emotional resonance, the third book from the two authors of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is another winner.

  1. This was one of the most clever, delightful, and fanciful books I've read in a long time. :-)

    1. It is a lot of fun, isn't it? The authors have collaborated on books before. If you liked this, don't miss Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist and Naomi & Ely's No Kiss List.
