Dash and lilys book of dares characters
Dash & Lily's Book of Dares Summary & Study GuideLily, one of the protagonists of the novel, has written a set of clues and challenges in a red notebook and left it on her favourite bookstore shelf waiting for the right guy to come along and complete those challenges. The two main characters Dash and Lily are absolute book nerds, who pass a red moleskin notebook between them consisting of dares for the other one to do. Dash is depicted as a misanthrope who relishes solitude and detests Christmas while Lily is very eccentric and absolutely loathes being alone. She is always looking for quirky things to engage herself in, like dog walking yes she is a dog walker, cool right? What I really love about this book is that both the characters are so different from one another but are connected by their love of reading. As the novel progresses, Lily and Dash contemplate whether they are compatible or are they only attuned as their notebook versions where they share thoughts, wise words and innovative dares.
DASH & LILY'S BOOK OF DARES BY RACHEL COHN & DAVID LEVITHAN
One day Dash is perusing the shelves of his favorite bookstore, the Strand, and instead of a first edition Salinger, he finds a notebook challenging him to follow the dares left for him by a girl named Lily and leave some of his own in return. Each dare reveals something new about Dash and Lily and brings them closer to the day they will actually meet. When that day finally arrives, they are forced to reconcile the versions of each other they had in their heads with the real thing.
Dash & Lily's Book of Dares
In this novel, Dash finds a notebook in his favorite bookstore. The notebook is full of clues that promise to be the beginning of an adventure. Dash completes the clues and leaves a message for the girl who created the notebook. Lily, the creator of the notebook, is surprised to have gotten a response, but she quickly jumps in to have an adventure. For a few days, Lily and Dash exchange the notebook, giving each other fun tasks to do that are both entertaining and humiliating. At the end of one dare, Lily becomes frightened and forgets to leave the notebook behind, causing an end to the adventure. However, Dash is determined to learn more about Lily, so he uses a boot she left behind as the only clue to find her.

Share on:. Just before Christmas, sixteen-year-old Lily leaves a notebook on the shelf of her favourite bookshop, in an effort to find the kind of love that has made her brother so happy. Dash finds it and follows the instructions, setting off a chain of passing the book back and forth trading their hopes and dreams. Could the two be just as right for each other in person as they are in writing? This is a reread for me - I read it two years ago near Christmas time and reached for it again this year.
