Read a synopsis here!
Number of pages: 183
Out of the three books that I’ve read by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan I’m surprised that I don’t like this one the most. I’ve heard a lot of other reviewers say this one is the best of the three but actually I liked Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List the best. I don’t know.
As usual, this story is super fast paced, and the writing is extremely distinct, but this book had a LOT more cussing, drinking, partying, and sex than the other books (Just a warning for younger readers!). If you’re not in high school I would not recommend this book.
The whole story takes the span of one night where Nick needs a girl to pretend to be his girl friend for 5 minutes and that girl happens to be Norah who is friends with the girl Nick is trying to make jealous. The rest of the night consists of an awesome adventure the two go on. It’s not a funny book, it’s actually kinda sobering but it’s great! (I gave it four out of five stars on GoodReads)
Like I said before, the writing is really distinct and you can tell it’s a Cohn/Levithan book, but that’s great! It really works! They let go of traditional writing and grammar laws and just write and it’s awesome! I would recommend this to people who won’t get offended by the amount of language and other bad things these teens get into, but hey! That’s life that’s what really happens out there! If anything, spread the word.
See you soon!
