Seriously, someone should make this into a movie. I know most of you have read this book and I’m a little bit late *wink* but whatever I’m just glad I got it for free on Netgalley! Lol. Ever since I found this book on Goodreads, I’ve been wanting to read it and I finally did (with my goodreads friends on We Love YA Books! Buddy Corner group). So our reading plan was to read 2-3 chapters a day and I finished the book two days after I started it. It was so good (ya’ll probably know that already)! The story is so cute and while reading it I thought of these two songs: Love Bug (by the Jonas Brothers BUT listen Princess’s cover of it) and Mistletoe by Justin Bieber. It totally fits the story (well I think it does).

The story is super chill and was very well written. I love how we get to see both of our protagonist’s side (Lily and Dash’s ehem the title ehem). I was planning on reading this during the month of December but I couldn’t wait! Even if it’s only September, I felt the Christmas atmosphere while reading it. The book was descriptive and I could picture the events happening in my head perfectly. Since it took place in New York, I could just imagine the snow going down and Lily and Dash’s efforts passing the red notebook back and forth to a designated place. They make such a sweet and cute couple I swear!

Let’s now talk about the characters. Even if Lily was the school’s captain of the soccer team, she had her flaws (so does Dash). She wasn’t the “popular” kid and I liked that! She’s rather independent and a shy person. She was reserved and mostly hanged out around with her family. Dash wasn’t one of those cool-dude kids either. Let’s say he’s normal lol. He’s very intelligent for his age (16) and even wanted an OED (Oxford English Dictionary) as a Christmas present. The characters were unique, not just Dash and Lily but I mean their family also!

For the ending, omg, it’s such a cliff hanger but I guess the authors wanted us to create our own ending and I think it’s kind of right. It makes me think that the story will go on forever since there wasn’t a certain ending to it. The whole concept of the story is great, I’ve never read anything like it (at least for now) and would highly highly highly did I mention HIGHLY? recommend this to anyone. I caught myself laughing a couple of times. It’s one of those books where you can’t stop reading because you wanna know what will happen next and sad because you realize you finished reading it.
Good Points
You'll just synced into the book.
Has a very Christmas-sy atmosphere.
You feel like you're in the book.
