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.

nice little teenage romance

At first I didn't like Lily's voice to much, but I got used to it. The story starts out really nice: the way they get to know each other by their dares to each other without meeting is cute and to get to know them was nice (allthough I liked Dash a little more, Lily seemed at first a little bit spoiled) the misunderstandings (seems like every love story needs them) were okay and the end was cute. It is a teenage novel, but I (38) could relaxe well while listening to it. But I am glad it wasn't any longer, that might have spoiled it. So if you are looking for some light hearted (is that spelled right?) entertainment, this book is for you.

A whirlwind romance through New York City

A hilarious romance between two great teenage characters with problems of their own, they bond over a red moleskin notebook that is passed back and forth throughout New York, accompanied by crazy dares in an attempt to outwit the other. With their feelings growing between them, they wonder if it would be the same if they met face to face; are they completely different in real life compared to their notebook selves? And would their romance crumble if they were ever to meet?

Initially, their accents made me question my enjoyability of the book, but the narrators are so expressive! Passing the narrative back and forth between them, they are fully convincing as main characters Dash and Lily and I grew rather fond of them!

Loved this book, the story was fantastic (especially as an audio), it was funny, sweet and unpredictable (except for the falling in love bit, that was obvious). I'm giving 4 stars for performance only because of my initial reaction!

(Those who are tempted but aren't fond of american accents, give this book a go! It's worth it, I promise you!)
