Synopsis

The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily by Rachel Cohn, David Levithan

Glorious new collaboration from the New York Times bestselling authors of Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. Dash and Lily have been dating for nearly a year, but when Lily's beloved grandfather falls ill, the repercussions take their toll on everyone. Even though they are still together, somehow the magic has gone out of their relationship and it's clear that Lily has fallen out of love with life. Action must be taken! Dash teams up with Lily's brother and a host of their friends, who have just twelve days to get Lily's groove back in time for Christmas. Look out for David's other books: Every Day, Another Day, Marly's Ghost, Two Boys Kissing, How They Met and Other Stories, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, and Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List. David is the New York Times best-selling author of Boy Meets Boy and Marly's Ghost. While among his many collaborations are Will Grayson, Will Grayson with Fault in Our Stars author John Green, and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist with Rachel Cohn, which became a major film. Tiny Cooper from Will Grayson, Will Grayson, now has his own novel: Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story. David is also a highly respected children's book editor, whose list includes many luminaries of children's literature, including Garth Nix, Libba Bray and Suzanne Collins. He lives and works in New York. Rachel Cohn was born in Maryland, but later moved to New York. Her first novel, Gingerbread, was published in 2002. Since then she has gone on to write many other successful YA and children's books, several in collaboration with David Levithan. She now lives and writes in Los Angeles, assisted by two very cool cats.

Reviews

For a cosier Christmas YA read, David Levithan and Rachel Cohn's The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily is a he-said, she-said romance about a couple struggling after a year together (the pair first met in Dash and Lily's Book of Dares), and an attempt to rekindle Christmas magic in a world that seems a little too bleak for it to matter. The New York setting lends this quirky love story a glamour that will appeal to young teens... -- Claire Hennessy * The Irish Times * I loved being in the company of Dash & Lily and was so distraught when i finished the last page of The Twelve Days. I miss those guys. So David & Rachel if you ever read this post... then you must write a new one each Christmas to keep me going please. -- Gill * The Book Magpie *
