Publisher's Summary

“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.”
So begins the latest whirlwind romance from the New York Times best-selling authors of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? Or are Dash and Lily only destined to trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York? Could their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions? Or will they be a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?
Rachel Cohn and David Levithan have written a love story that will have listeners perusing bookstore shelves, looking and longing for a love (and a red notebook) of their own.

Missed the Mark

This story was a cute idea poorly executed. Some passages of the writing were quite clever, while too many of them tried too hard with the cutsey/trying not to be cutsey New York too-clever-and-hip-for-you language. Also, I did not find it believable that the two main characters could be a couple: while the young man comes across as an intelligent and nice person (who may be open-minded to any number of possibilities) the girl just plain seems too young for him. Her maturity and (lack-of) experience just seems too far behind where he is in life. Through the notebook you do get the hint that they might indeed be compatible - only, in a few years after she's "grown up" a little more. To be more convincing, the female voice needed to sound just a little bit older. Also, I found the ending a bit anti-climactic. So, I regret to say this did not win me over.

Review on the book

I have purchased the audiobook because I am SO enamoured with the print copy. I received it in prepublication and the the narrative just sings. It is one of the best written books I've read in a long time, and as a high school librarian, believe me, I read a lot of YA books. Every student I have recommended the book to as well has adored it.
