Dash & Lily's Book of Dares

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares - Rachel Cohn, David Levithan AuthorsRachel grew up in the D.C. area and graduated from Barnard College with a B.A. in Political Science. She has written many YA novels, including three that she cowrote with her friend and colleague David Levithan. She lives and writes (when she's not reading other people's books, organizing her music library or looking for the best cappuccino) in New York City.David Levithan (born 1972) is an American children's book editor and award-winning author. He published his first YA book, Boy Meets Boy, in 2003. Levithan is also the founding editor of PUSH, a Young Adult imprint of Scholastic Press.ReviewI heard a lot of good things about this book last year around christmas. People where saying it was a sweet and nice story and I put it on my shelves but was not able to get my hands on a copy. Finally this year I got it and decided to read it around Christmas cause that is when this story is playing.It actually is a very sweet and nice story. The development of the relation between Dash and Lily trough the notebook is so cute and well worked out. You are hoping that they go to their assignments in time and I was really waiting for that moment they would run into eachother. I would have liked that situation a little bit different but it gave a nice couple of extra pages.I think the story deals very well with young people looking for themself, who they want to be and how they want other people to look at them but that is all brought in a light and entertaining tone making this a real pleasure to read.The characters are easy to cheer for.A good read in these dark days before Christmas.
