Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares

admin    November 30, 2010

Do you love Nick and Norah?  Well, then…you must pick up Levithan and Cohn’s latest collaboration.

It’s Christmas break and both Dash and Lily are spending Christmas alone while their parents are out of town for various reasons.  When Lily leaves a red Moleskin at The Strand secondhand bookstore next to Franny and Zooey with a list of clues, she never thinks that it will be picked up by the articulate and bookish Dash.

Over the course of the break the two trade stories, dreams, and even a few dares which get both of them out of their comfort zones- but when the time comes to meet with Dash and Lily connect in person like they have on the page?

I love the story, I love the characters, and I really love the setting.  I can totally picture myself in Manhattan this Christmas – preferably browsing The Strand while sipping a hot chocolate.
