Book Reviews: Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

7741325

Probably one of my all-time favourite books – smart, sexy, hilarious and fun. One of the rare teen novels that explores themes such as friendship and love without having to go into more depressing topics. Light-hearted yet deep and profound, Cohn and Levithan have struck the perfect balance between a novel that gives important life lessons and one that effortlessly engages teenagers. Dash’s entertainingly pessimistic commentary and Lily’s possibly naive but nonetheless endearing hopefulness are a great combination. Recommended for ages 14-17. Contains sexual references and coarse language.

Star4.5
