Words have power. Thatís what Lily discovers after her brother Ė trying to lure her out of her loneliness -- convinces her to start a literary adventure with a stranger. So she leaves a red notebook on a shelf in her favorite bookstore, challenging its finder to accept her dares. That stranger just happens to be the snarly Dash, a teenage boy, somewhat of a loner as well, who jumps at the chance to keep himself occupied during the winter holidays. As they embark on a treasure hunt of sorts -- passing the notebook back and forth without ever meeting each other -- Dash and Lily find that itís easy to share their hopes and dreams on the pages of the notebook. Itís what comes next that proves to be the real challenge. Ė Cara Woudenberg  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2011-2012)
