For the first time in her life, Lily - a lover of all things Christmas - is spending Christmas alone. To take her mind off things, she leaves a Red Moleskine of clues in her favourite bookstore. Dash, also spending Christmas alone, finds the notebook, and the two get swept away in a back and forth exchange of words.
Co-Authored books are always hit or miss, but after enjoying ‘Will Grayson, Will Grayson’ (John Green & David Levithan) I figured that I was in safe hands with this book.
Beautiful and seamless writing by two brilliant authors, each chapter flows into the next, urging you to read more and more and become incredibly invested in the characters and their courtship through the pages of a notebook. As I was reading, I began to wish I was once again a teenager - young and falling in love for the first time without even realising, and finding out who you are and what you want out of life.
This is a lovely book, one I can imagine sinking even more into if read during the Holiday Season, and a great story to lose yourself in.
