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.
Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favourite 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.
I felt that certain things were over explained for example when Dash sees the book poking out of the shelves he goes on about his friends note books and I lost track of what was going on and had to go back and reread that section.
I won't spoil things by going into detail so I will just say that Dash finds this notebook written by Lillie which has clues and dares in it he starts to follow what Lillie has written in the book but he also switched up things a bit and from what I understand they go on to build up a romance with each other.
The first chapter was from Dash's point of view then the following chapter is from Lillie's point of view and she is the opposite to Dash more cheerful. The sample does not have the whole of Lillie's chapter so I did not get enough of an idea about her character, I think they should of allowed a chapter of Lillie's so you can gauge what her side of the story will be like, because I was not enjoying things from Dash's perspective Lillie's could of lifted my view a bit had I got to sample the whole of her chapter.
I was not overly keen on the writing style but the story line is catchy it can either go one of two ways, it could go the silly route or the fun route where you continually want to find out what is going to happen next.
I don't think I will be rushing to read this book but I am not going to rule out reading it at some point in the future. If you have read this book let me know your thoughts in the comments below...
