Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling authors Rachel Cohn and David Levithan are back with a life-affirming Christmas romance starring Dash and Lily. 

Dash and Lily have had a tough year since fans watched the couple fall in love in Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares. Lily’s beloved grandfather suffered a heart attack, and his difficult road to recovery has taken a major toll on her typically sunny disposition. Lily’s spark has dimmed so much that Langston, her brother, has put aside his grudge against Dash to team up and remind Lily what there is to love about life.

With only twelve days left until Christmas - Lily’s favorite time of the year - Dash, Langston, and their friends take Manhattan by storm to help Lily recapture the holiday spirit of New York City in December, a time and place unlike anywhere else in the world. Told in alternating chapters, The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily is bound to be a Christmas favorite for seasons to come.

“Cohn and Levithan write with verve and plenty of wry comedy.... Intriguing characters and splendid writing.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Peppered with sharp banter and up-to-the-minute New York City references.... A full-fledged rom-com.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Hilarious and heartfelt...[captures] the emotions of teen love, along with the hilarity of young adult life.” (School Library Journal)

not a must read

cute story overall but the characters (especially Lily's) are rather shallow and the story is not that interesting. the perfomance is ok, l liked Dash's narration better.

Really annoying narration

I literally cannot stand the woman's voice - it drove me crazy and made it difficult to listen. I kept wanting to turn it down so far I wouldn't be able to hear the story

Absolutely ruined my Christmas Holidays!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story started out as a quite enjoyable one, but when the author's had to insert absolutely disgusting ideas to a Christmas Tradition, it ruined everything!

Has The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily turned you off from other books in this genre?

I quite realistic fiction, but I will tend to stay away from these authors from now on.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story was good to begin with, but there is no need to cheapen a good story with an absolutely disgusting idea.
