Nick & Norah - A Musical Love Story

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan is a passionately electric book full of music references, late night burlesque shows, kissing, joy, intellegent characters, confusion, first date/last date? angst,a "queercore" rock band with a straight bass player, ex girl/boy friends, sensuality, mental intimacy, anxiety...

What, are you looking for MORE? It's all in this well written and entertaining book.

It was one of those books that I read almost straight through because I didn't want to put it down. Even if you don't know all the bands that are mentioned, or like all the music that the characters like, the feelings they feel are familiar and you care about what happens to them.

People in grades 9 - 12 can join in the book discussion about this one. The discussion is on Wednesday November 15th from 7-8pm. Sign up at the Teen Desk and get your book now!

Or, if you just want to check it out, you can do that too!
