Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, by Cohn & Levithan
Lily, also, was a very sharp, witty teen. The situation that brought them together was creative. It also took place during Christmas and New Years, so a perfect read for right now! A red notebook was left by Lily and found by Dash in a bookstore. They begin to correspond through this notebook, and lead each other on all sorts of adventures. I liked that they were afraid to meet in person -- I think it was a realistic fear, because I always feel like I can make myself sound better or different on paper than I really am. (Now you are all wondering, what is she really like, this book blogger person???)
The supporting characters, Lily's cousin Mark, her brother, Langston, and her aunt, "Mrs. Basil E" were all wonderful and added to the "perkiness" of the story. Dash's friends, in particular, Boomer, were well written also. This was a book with a lot of "characters," all memorable and wonderful.
I really didn't not like anything. It's a light, funny, heartwarming read. If that's not what you are in the mood for, maybe you won't like this. But, I can't think of any other reason you wouldn't.
