Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn (ages 14 & up)

Three weeks, two days, and twenty-three hours ago, Tris broke Nick's heart. So when Tris shows up at the punk concert where Nick's playing with his band – known alternatively as Porn Yesterday, The Back Handkerchiefs, The Vengeful Hairdressers, and None of Your Business – he's desperate to hide how obsessed he still is with her. Turning to the girl next to him, he asks her to be his girlfriend for five minutes, hoping to protect his battered ego and make Tris jealous. But what starts as an act soon turns into something more. With the aid of a $50 bribe, a 24-hour Ukrainian restaurant, a taxi driver who is not the casting director for the Sopranos, and a great music playlist, Nick and Norah both begin to wonder if maybe they've been looking for love in all the wrong places. Written in chapters alternating Nick and Norah's point of view, this is a vivid, gritty look at two very real teenagers discovering the ups and downs, highs and lows, of love, life, and relationships. Your teen reader will be caught up in the rhythm of these two personal journeys that lead Nick and Norah in and out of each other's orbit during one crazy, momentous, heartbreaking, heart stopping, and totally unforgettable night.
