Gr 10 Up—The beloved Dash and Lily are back in the hilarious and heartfelt sequel to Dash & Lily's Book of Dares. It's been a year since we left the couple, and since then, things have been rough. Lily's grandfather had a heart attack and has a rocky road to recovery, leaving Lily sad during her favorite time of year—Christmas. As a result, her dutiful boyfriend Dash has his mind set on making her happy in the 12 days left leading up to the holiday. Participating in another scavenger hunt, a memorable ice-skating party, a family Christmas party, and more, the duo, along with a cast of familiar friends and family members, take on memorable high jinks, showing readers that the holiday season isn't just about presents but also about being in the present. Cohn and Levithan have once again crafted an exuberant novel capturing the emotions of teen love, along with the hilarity of young adult life. Chapters that alternate between the protagonists' perspectives flow seamlessly together and will have readers laughing out loud as the couple are faced with various issues—together and apart. However, the heart of the novel runs deep and is slowly revealed, leaving teens feeling all the emotions at once. VERDICT A wonderful addition to collections where the first novel is popular.—Erin Holt, Williamson County Public Library, Franklin, TN

I loved/still love the first book about Dash and Lilly. I love getting to see the characters again but also wonder if this book was necessary.
It took more than a little while for me to connect with the characters again. To be more specific, it was Lily I really had trouble connecting with this time. I know she's been sheltered a lot and what not but at times I was just thinking what/why would you do that. Her decision making skills are a bit shaky it seems and you kind of want to sit her down and say maybe act your age.
After awhile though the story finally clicked with me. The first book is still the best but the end of this one is worthwhile too. The catastrophes toward the end brought everything together nicely.
