I've left some clues for you.
If you want them, turn the page.
If you dont, put the book back on the shelf, please.

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 readers perusing bookstore shelves, looking and longing for a love (and a red notebook) of their own.

Ah, I love the holidays! December is so my favourite month of the year.

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares is such an adorable book and the perfect read for the holidays!
The story is set in New York and begins with Dash at a local bookstore that he visits often, when he comes across a notebook with a set of clues written in it. Curious and bored, Dash decides to play the game, which leads him on a search to find the owner of the notebook.

I'm still smiling from reading this book. It's written in multiple POVs and I absolutely loved Dash's narration. I know he's a teenager but he's so cute! When I began reading Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, I expected a quick, fluffy read and nothing more. However, this book exceeded my expectations. The characters, despite being teenagers, have depth, humour and wit. The dialogues make you laugh, sometimes cry and other times, give you something to think about.

I had initially given this book 3 stars but that was before I finished reading it. As you can see, I've changed my mind. Some of the lines were so deep and meaningful. This is a book that I'll treasure.
I loved every bit of Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, it was such a fun read a wonderful adventure.
I recommend this to everyone!

Thanks to MiraInk for giving me this book!
