This book was absolutely enchanting! I was lucky enough to book [a:David Levithan|11664|David Levithan|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1208616138p2/11664.jpg] and [a:Rachel Cohn|13139|Rachel Cohn|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1224298697p2/13139.jpg] for an event at the store, and they were so much fun!

Can't say enough good things about it, and I will continue to handsell it like crazy! Fun!… (més)

“I have always found peace among books.”

“Sometimes you make plans. Sometimes plans make themselves.”

While I enjoyed this second book in the Dash & Lily series more than the first, it still wasn't a favourite. The lack of communication between Dash and Lily, in addition to her overall sour mood (even if semi-understandable) was a tad on the exhausting side.

A cute, fun read! Although Dash was a little (okay, very, and almost annoyingly so) pretentious, and I got some weird and eye-rolling "I'm not like OtHeR gIrLs, I'm QuIrKy!!!" vibes from Lily, I found myself grinning at their communications to each other and overall invested in the story.
I think the writing, particularly in Dash's chapters, was solid and had a distinct style to it. The setting is in NYC, and while I feel like that could easily fall into cliche writing, I think the authors did a good job of establishing the bustling, festive, sometimes grimy atmosphere that is NYC during December.

My least favorite part of this book had to be the fact that all these teens had a very "easy" time doing what they did. Dash has somehow convinced both his parents (divorced) that he is spending the holidays at the other parents house. I get that this is fiction, but sometimes these circumstances that YA main characters get into are super convenient and fairly unbelievable. Lily happens to have this HUGE family spread all across NYC, and they all have jobs in, again, very convenient places that make the plot a little too easy for my liking. The family also all 'happens' to be on vacation/distracted with something else/very wealthy, which makes it super easy for Lily to get away with a lot of what she does and where she goes.

Again, all in all, it was an entertaining read, and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a feel-good YA romance with a little city adventure thrown in. I think I would read another book with these two characters!

First of all, one of my all-time biggest pet peeves is girls who call each other "bitch" like it's a cute nickname, as in "Okay, bitch. Love you!" (which is a direct quote from this book). Ugh.

I must be getting old because reading this book made me think, Do 18 year olds really talk like this? The dialogue was kind of like Dawson's Creek: a little too clever and contrived.

I thought I was going to like this, but I mostly didn't. The characters weren't likable, but angsty in a boring way. They wax poetic and they get all dramatic and I'm thinking, There are many reasons I never want to be a teenager again. Gross.

As with so many other hot YA books, I see the teen appeal in a detached librarian way, but I was personally disappointed. I only really read N&NIP because Michael Cera is playing Nick in the movie. I don't know how he's going to pull it off because his other roles have been on a totally different wavelength.
