BAILEY'S PICK - Youth Services Specialist

Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn

"Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares is a wacky romp through New York at Christmastime, starting where all good stories should start: a bookstore. It had me laughing hysterically at some parts and made me introspectively somber during others. This is one of my favorite contemporary Christmas reads. If you're a fan of anything by John Green, this is the book for you."
