Dash & Lily's Book of Dares

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares cover

A whirlwind romance from the"New York Times"bestselling authors of"Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist"
" 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. "
16-year-old Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on her favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. Dash, in a bad mood during the holidays, happens to be the first guy to pick up the notebook and rise to its challenges.
What follows is a whirlwind romance as Dash and Lily trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations all across New York City. But can their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions, or will their scavenger hunt end in a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?
Co-written by Rachel Cohn (GINGERBREAD) and David Levithan, co-author of WILL GRAYSON, WILL GRAYSON with John Green (THE FAULT IN OUR STARS), DASH & LILY'S BOOK OF DARES isa love story that will have readers scouring bookstore shelves, looking and longing for a love (and a red notebook) of their own.

"From the Hardcover edition.

Rachel Cohn & David Levithan have written three books together. Their first, "Nick & Norah s Infinite Playlist, " was made into a movie starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings, directed by Peter Sollett. Their second, "Naomi and Ely s No Kiss List, " was named a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age. For their third book, "Dash & Lily s Book of Dares, " David wrote Dash s chapters and Rachel wrote Lily s. Although they did not pass the chapters back and forth in a red Moleskine notebook, they did email them to each other without planning anything out beforehand. That s the way they work.

Rachel s previous books include "Gingerbread, Shrimp, Cupcake, You Know Where to Find Me, " and "Very LeFreak." David s previous books include "Boy Meets Boy, The Realm of Possibility, Are We There Yet?, Wide Awake, Love Is the Higher Law, " and "How They Met, and Other Stories."
