Dash & Lily's Book of Dares

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares - Rachel Cohn, David Levithan The primes of this book was cute, and I wanted to like this one more than I did, but 1/2 way through the story just kinda fell flat for me. my biggest issue was the charters. at first I liked both Dash and Lily, what's not to like about two people who find each other via a notebook in a bookstore? But Dash turned out to be a pretentious hipster, and lily just didn't really leave much of an impression on me. I guess when you think about it she kinda was the sheet of paper in Collation the fictional Pixar movie the authors came up with about office supplies that fall in love (really?) The first time they meet, when Lily has gotten herself drunk from a few to many sips of other peoples drinks just felt forced, it wasn't natural, and felt way out of character for Lily. I get that they were looking for something to shake up their "relationship" but it was just not the best way way to accomplish it, not that I have any suggestions or anything. Overall the premise was cute, and I think having something like Dash and Lily's book would be a lot of fun, but the story just didn't deliver. I wouldn't say I disliked the book, I never had one of those moments were I toy with the idea of not finishing the book, it just didn't live up to my expectations.
