Description

The sexy, funny roller coaster of a love story from David Levithan and Rachel Cohn, which inspired the beloved film starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings. Nick and Norah are both suffering from broken hearts. So when Nick sees the girl who dumped him walk in with a new guy he asks the strange girl next to him to be his girlfriend for the next five minutes. Norah would do anything to avoid conversation with the not-friend girl who dumped Nick, and get over the Evil Ex whom Norah never quite broke up with. And so she agrees. What follows is an epic first date between two people who are just trying to figure out who they want to be - and where the next great band is playing. This story plays out over one unforgettable night in New York. One of the great YA novels about falling in love, for everyone who had their hearts broken by Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park or Jandy Nelson's I'll Give You the Sun. David and Rachel's other collaborations include Naomi and Eli's No Kiss List and The 12 Days of Dash and Lily. David Levithan is the New York Times best-selling author of Boy Meets Boy, Every Day, and Another Day. His many collaborations include Will Grayson, Will Grayson with Fault in Our Stars author John Green. Tiny Cooper from Will Grayson, Will Grayson, now has his own novel: Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story. David's latest collaboration with Rachel Cohn, The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily, was picked by Zoella for her Book Club with WHSmiths. 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 now also lives in New York. Among her many YA novels are Gingerbread, Shrimp, and Cupcake.show more

Review also available on my blog: http://readingismycupoftea.tumblr.com/post/92560616906/review-nick-norahs-infinite-playlist-by-rachel-cohn Hi guys! Although I hadnâ??t heard of Rachel Cohn before I read this, I had heard of David Levithan from his book Two Boys Kissing - which lots of people say is great. I am unsure about co-written books but this plot sounded interesting so I decided to request it. It was first published in 2006 but reprinted early this month with a cool new cover! Straight away, I didnâ??t connect to this book. I found the style really hard to understand and some sentences I had to read twice to fully understand. I did finish this book but the complex writing style made it difficult to read - especially for a short book. Whereas some sentences were incredibly poetic and deep, others were filled with the F-word (used gratuitously in this book) which meant that contrasted with each other they felt out of place. I can understand that perhaps Cohn and Levithan were trying to convey a message about what the teenage society is like but for me I found it confusing and very difficult to read. It stopped me from connecting to the plot, or the characters. The pace for me was disjointed. The start of the book was very quick, too quick. Youâ??re dropped immediately into this concert without knowing anything about the characters or the situation. Perhaps the authors were reflecting the charactersâ?? immediate relationship but I found it disconcerting. I was hoping for some introduction, setting the scene, before Nick met Norah. However, after they met and got in Nickâ??s car, the pace slowed too much and it took ages for something else to happen. Although the characters were quirky and at moments I did think they were cute or funny but generally I thought that Cohn and Levithan were trying so hard to make them edgy and cool that they overloaded the charactersâ?? dialogue with obscure references which as a teenager I didnâ??t understand. Overall, although some interesting ideas were explored and some sentences were really poetic, I generally did not enjoy this book. I found the style overly complex and difficult to read and the characters were a struggle to connect with. 2 stars. How did you find this book? :) -Mollyshow more
