Too high of expectations....

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

By: Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Genre: YA Realistic Fiction

Pages: 183

Published: 2006

Read: January

2.5 out of 5

I have never read Cohn, but I am a huge fan of Levithan. My favorite is Will Grayson, Will Grayson, which he co-authored with John Green (also a huge fan). However, this one bored me for the most part, plus I thought it was way too offensive in language and overly graphic for YA. I read this book in hopes to have it be book club choice for my teens. I feel as a teen librarian I cannot promote this book.  I was not offended and would not discourage older teens from reading it. However, I would not put it in their hands. Overall, I believe my expectations may have been too high and I was disappointed.
