I noticed this book in our house--my mom was reading it, and the cover both intrigued me and repelled me. However, after my mom's recommendation, I read this book--and loved it. It is one of the most dead-on accurate books I've ever read about young emotions and feelings. The initial plot is slightly contrived: a heartbroken teenager sees his ex with her new guy and asks a girl to pretend she's his girlfriend. However, the story is told by both Nick and Norah's point of view, so the reader is allowed into the minds of both characters, allowing for deeper insights into these young people. Rachel Cohn and David Levithan co-wrote this book, and as I said, completely nailed the angst, heartbreak, humor, tragedy, and hope that young love brings. This book is also extremely honest: characters are gay, doped up, drunk, sexual, and misguided. But the honesty and genuine emotion separate this book from the thousands of other young-adult novels from which to choose. A must-read for anyone currently in or who survived their teenage years.
