It's Christmas-time in New York, and world-weary Dash has managed to persuade each of his parents that he is staying with the other, thus sending them both off with their new 'paramours' and leaving him happily shuffling back and forth between their empty apartments. Meanwhile, Christmas-loving Lily is bereft at the thought of spending Christmas without her full complement of family, and has been consoling herself with cookie-baking and carols-singing. When Lily's brother plants a red moleskin notebook in Dash's favourite store, leaving instructions that lead him not only around the bookstore but eventually out into the Christmas-sozzled city, the scene is set for a back-and-forth series of clues, coincidences and missed rendezvous.

Will sarcastic, intriguing Dash finally meet up with nerdy but loveable Lily? Only time will tell as the two teenagers try to outwit each other for as long as possible in this charming twist on the classic game of cat and mouse.

David Levithan

David Levithan is fearless in his writing and absolutely assumes that the teenagers he writes for can comprehend, enjoy and relate to complicated, full and enveloping emotions, and this unflinching faith in his readership has once again led him to write another contemporary classic. 

Readings on Another Day  'David Levithan's latest release is timely and important but, most of all, it is astonishingly sophisticated.. Levithan has outdone himself.' Courier Mail on Two Boys Kissing 'Levithan's self-conscious, analytical style marries perfectly with the plot. His musings on love, longing and human nature knit seamlessly with A's journey.

Readers will devour his trademark poetic wordplay and cadences that feel as fresh as they were when he wrote Boy Meets Boy (2003). An awe-inspiring, thought-provoking reminder that love reaches beyond physical appearances or gender.

    Really enjoyed this one. Been years since I've needed to refer to a dictionary when reading a novel. It was fun, romantic & had great word play - we borrowed this from the library & now are buying it for when our kid is old enough to read it!
