    Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? Or are Dash and Lily only destined to trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York? Could their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions? Or will they be a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?

    Overall

    I have purchased the audiobook because I am SO enamoured with the print copy. I received it in prepublication and the the narrative just sings. It is one of the best written books I've read in a long time, and as a high school librarian, believe me, I read a lot of YA books. Every student I have recommended the book to as well has adored it.

    Everyone has a secret. But Lucy's is bigger and dirtier than most. It's one she's been hiding for years: that her mom's out-of-control hoarding has turned their lives into a world of garbage and shame. She has managed to keep her home life hidden from her best friend and her crush, knowing they'd be disgusted by the truth.

    "painful to listen to"
    Overall

    "Dirty Little Secrets" is interesting, but the narration is painful because there is no flow. For a while I thought it was a novel in verse form, but I checked the book and it isn't done that way. I have no explanation as to why the narrator chose to put in all the pauses or lengthen the words she does.

    Seven o'clock on a Monday morning, 500 years after the end of the world, and goblins had been at the cellar again...Not that anyone would admit it was goblins. In Maddy Smith's world, order rules. Chaos, old gods, fairies, goblins, magic, glamours: all of these were supposedly vanquished centuries ago. But Maddy knows that a small bit of magic has survived. The "ruinmark" she was born with on her palm proves it.

    "good book, lousy narrator"
    Overall

    Why would a company choose a narrator who lisps?
