Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling authors Rachel Cohn and David Levithan are back together with a life-affirming holiday romance starring Dash and Lily. Just in time for the series release of Dash & Lily on Netflix!

Dash and Lily have had a tough year since readers/listeners 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 12 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.

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.

It’s what you can expect

The magic of the first story couldn’t be captured, which is no surprise. After listening to the first story last year, I hadn’t planned on listening to the second one. After rewatching the Netflix series based off the first book, I wanted to try to listen to the second book.

The story is okay. It’s a little over the top and cringe at times, but that’s okay. It’s just that some of the characters are so over the top and unbelievable that it can be annoying. Boomer, for instance, is annoyingly idiotic. “I can ask that girl Amber in my chemistry class to put out an alert.” If his character said things to be funny, that would be one thing, but it’s the fact that the characters all genuinely believe he means the things he says that makes it annoying. The show made him into a real person. In the book it seems like someone wants to make a joke of people on the autism spectrum. It’s infuriating. There are other characters too that just seem so flat when they shouldn’t be.

The performances are great.

Honestly if you just want an easy listen that is sweet and cheesy for the holidays, it’s not a bad choice. It just could have been better. Or maybe I’m just outgrowing my love of YA.

leave politics out

the political commentary could be left out , would be the better for it and not date the story and make irrelevant in the future

Cute continuation

Dash and Lily left off with high hopes of knowing more about their relationship. This second book delves more into the trials and tribulations of what might go on in a teenage loves head. All of their fears and angst. I live how the authors continue the back and forth banter between these two characters!
A great sequel to the first! I hope Netflix makes season 2 using the same actors next season!
