Review: Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David LevithanNick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan (review copy) - Nick and Norah are both suffering from broken hearts.

So when Nick sees the girl who dumped him walk in with a new guy he asks the strange girl next to him to be his girlfriend for the next five minutes.

Norah would do anything to avoid conversation with the not-friend girl who dumped Nick, and get over the Evil Ex whom Norah never quite broke up with. And so she agrees.

What follows is a sexy, funny roller coaster of a story of a first date over one very long night in New York.
