New York Times bestselling authors Rachel Cohn and David Levithan are back with a life-affirming Christmas romance starring Dash and Lily.

Dash and Lily have had a tough year since readers first watched the couple fall in love. Lily’s beloved grandfather suffered a heart attack, and his difficult road to recovery has taken a major toll on her typically sunny disposition.

With only twelve days left until Christmas—Lily’s favorite time of the year—Dash, Lily’s brother Langston, and their closest friends take Manhattan by storm to help Lily recapture the holiday magic of New York City in December.

Told in alternating chapters, The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily reunites two beloved characters and is bound to be a Christmas favorite, season after season.


3 Reasons You Should Read…

The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily
by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan


  • Let’s be honest. We would reading ANYTHING that these two wrote. That includes their diaries. Wait. Can we make that happen? There’s bound to be some amazing stuff in those bad boys. We got sidetracked…. but you get the point. They write it. We read it.
  • We have wanted more Dash & Lily since the second we turned the last page of the first book. It is one of our favorites and had a lot to live up to. Luckily for us, and all of you, this one does not disappoint.
  • We love a good Holiday read, and there’s not nearly enough of them. This story isn’t all fluff and cuteness (although there is plenty of that too!) but it is a perfect book to read while snuggling under a blanket and sipping some hot chocolate.
