Dash & Lily's Book of Dares

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares - Rachel Cohn, David Levithan If you are looking for the holiday romance book of the season, this is it! I haven't read a more perfectly put together romance like this in a long time. The story mostly takes place at the Strand, the famous NYC bookstore. Lily's brother pretty much tells her she is a loser and when her parents and grandfather take off over the winter break, she finds herself truly alone. Her brother hits on the idea that she should leave a book of dares stashed on the shelf at the Strand. Dash discovers the book and he starts to communicate with Lily through the journal.After several madcap adventures and quips traded back and forth in the journal, Lily finally meets Dash face to face. There are several difficult moments with lots of character growth. This one will make you go "awwww" quite a few times and there is enough action to keep the plot moving. There is some alluded to sex mentioned and an instance of alcohol, but overall not much to worry about.
