Timed to the release of DASH AND LILY on Netflix comes a new helping of love--this time across the pond as best-selling authors Rachel Cohn and David Levithan send Dash and Lily to jolly old England.

Dash and Lily are feeling closer than ever...it's just too bad they're also an ocean apart. After Dash gets accepted to Oxford University and Lily stays in New York to take care of her dogwalking business, the inseparable couple are struggling to make a long distance relationship work. And when Dash breaks the news that he won't be coming home to New York for Christmas, Lily makes a decision: if Dash can't come to New York, she'll go to London. But will Lily pull off the ultimate surprise--or will Christmas in London backfire?

3 Reasons You Should Read…

Mind the Gap, Dash & Lily by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

  • Getting more. We {puffy heart} all things Dash and Lily and could not wait when we found out we were getting more! We love everything about this series, especially the characters. Though not as fluffy as we were hoping for, this check-in with Dash and Lily is an unexpected treat. It’s like visiting with old friends.
  • The setting. We love the way Rachel Cohn and David Levithan make the setting of their books such an integral part of the story, so we were thrilled with this one. This time we get to go England and celebrate the holidays.
  • Dash. Gosh, we just love him so much. He’s swoony and quirky and just one of our favorites.

Bottom Line:

A little bit of angst with a lot of fun, Mind the Gap, Dash & Lily is an unexpected holiday treat that reminds us why we love these characters and their authors.
