The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily
Dash and Lily met last Christmas in a whirlwind of adventure, but this year, things aren’t feeling so magical. Lily is dealing with changes in her family’s career, living situation, and health, and Dash feels that, amidst this upheaval, they’re missing the spark in their relationship that was once there. Christmas, Lily’s favorite holiday, is approaching, and Dash sets out to restore the joy that’s missing in her life this holiday season.
Though a companion novel to Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares, The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily stands on its own. With humor, energy, and heart, Cohn and Levithan depict the joy and confusion of being young, in love, and questioning some of life’s big truths. Dash, Lily, and the characters they surround themselves with, from Lily’s great aunt to a crew of librarians, are well rounded and real, and the adventures Lily and Dash go on in the name of love or self-discovery make for a fun, page-turning read. The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily has just what you want out of a Christmas story: warmth, adventure, and the magic of familial and romantic love.
