“When Lily finds most of her family gone for the Christmas holidays, her brother decides she needs an adventure and encourages her to leave a red notebook full of challenges on her favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for the right guy to come along and find it. Dash finds it and passes it back, beginning a hilarious exchange of dares and crosstown trips. Cohn and Levithan, authors of Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist, have crafted another gem of a novel.”

“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.”
