It wasn't one of my favorite books of all time (or even of recent time), but I liked the sense of adventure the whole thing had. It makes me want to write more, and to plan a giant multi-city scavenger hunt. It does not, however, make me want to read it again.

I loved the mixture of David Levithan and Rachel Cohn's writing style. Though the way the two main characters met was something straight out of a fantasy, it was still so real. Dash and Lily were very real people who made mistakes and were awkward. Kudos to any authors who can admit that firsts are awkward in real life. I read through this book like wildfire and really liked it! But seriously... that ending?
