Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Nick's ex just walked through the door with a new guy, so he asks the girl standing next to him to be his girlfriend for the next five minutes. Norah knows Nick's ex, she's her not no friend Trish and since she's avoiding an ex of her own, she answer's Nick's question by making out with him .

One kiss down and a whole night to go as Nick and Norah wander through Manhattan on their 'first date', taking about life and love and, above all, music during a night when everything could happen.

In life there are certain books that leave you with a little bit of an afterglow once you have finished, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is one of those. You race to the whole book wanting to know how the night is going to end and wishing it never did; but when it does end, you give a happy sigh and lay in bed at night, listening to the music inside your head and wishing it happened to you too.

Nick and Norah also have something that sometimes is hard to find in today's YA fiction: it's quite realistic. It doesn't end with a cute little bow, in a perfect happy ending. There are no 'meant to be's in this book, but the ending is hopeful and true.
