Book Review: Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn - Reviewed by Jess (12 May 2020)
I read Dash and Lily's Book of Dares about a week or two before Christmas and found it to be a pretty 'ok' Christmas read. It definitely isn't one of my favourite books of all time and I don't think I will jump to re-read it, but I think if you are a fan of young adult contemporary reads and enjoy Christmas books then give this one a go. The two main characters - Dash and Lily - are both quite serious teenagers and whilst they do face some difficult challenges in their personal life, they definitely bring the descriptor 'angst' to mind. It seems like nothing will make Dash happy other than being away from every other human being, but Lily brings about a bit of joy in him, even if it isn't exactly overwhelming. I didn't mind Lily, but found Dash to be a bit too annoying and the very large chip on his shoulder added to this, as well as the sometimes rude way he treats other people. I did enjoy the realistic approach to Christmas in our current world and the way the actual day can often be a let-down and disappointment after such a huge lead-up. I did, however, like the treasure hunt feel the book had with the 'book of dares' between the two.
