Dash & Lily's Book of Dares
Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
Dash is scanning the shelves of his favorite bookstore. There, nestled between familiar book spines sits a red notebook. Inside the notebook is a challenge from Lily to find clues in the pages of books.
Over the course of ten days in December, Christmas-loving Lily and Christmas-hating Dash exchange dares and challenges that take them into the nooks and crannies of New York City: into familiar parks and obscure music clubs, outwitting her overprotective family and his indifferent one. Will it all end in romance? Or in a locked closet full of books? Or...possibly...both?
Sweet, fun, philosopical and mostly harmless. No cussing, no sex. A little nakedness, a few kisses, and some underage partying may keep this book out of school libraries, but I hope not.
Recommended for readers ages 14 to adult.
