3.5 stars. Cute book about teenagers who've been left behind at Christmas finding adventure and love together through a notebook full of dares. Definitely adorable, not extraordinary. The characters are likable enough, especially Lily and her family and Boomer. There are some thoughtful passages about life and love and the meaning of things. A good holiday read. And very funny. I'd recommend it to you if you like books about teenagers who like to think and analyze a lot or you want a quick, fun holiday read.
