A chance meeting and how it can change your world. He is avoiding his Ex and she is avoiding having to talk to his Ex, but neither knows that the other knows the Ex when they first meet. One question, one kiss and a whole night of fun. I really enjoyed this book a lot. I was sucked in right away and couldn’t stop reading until the book was done. It is a quick read. I would say that it is not a book for anyone under 16 or 17 years old... maybe even for some they should be at least 18.

A chance meeting and how it can change your world. The story starts off with Nick on stage playing with his band at a club in NYC. While playing Nick spots his ex-girlfriend Tris, who ripped his heart out just six weeks before, in the crowd with a new guy and starts to think about her and freaks out in his head a little. After he is done playing and standing near the bar, Nick sees Tris coming towards him with her new guy and he decides he has to do something to maybe try and make her jealous and maybe also make him look a little less pathetic before she gets to where he is. He turns to the girl next to him (who he doesn't know, Norah) and asks her to be his girlfriend for the next five minutes. Norah looks at him and is thinking she has no interest in doing that until she see a girl from school that she doesn't want to talk to at that moment. She responds to Nick's question by kissing him. The girl Norah's is avoiding happens to be Nick's ex, but Norah and Nick don't know that the other knows Tris. One question, one kiss and a whole night of fun. I really enjoyed this book a lot. I was sucked in right away and couldn't stop reading until the book was done. David Levithan wrote Nick's POV in the book and Rachel Cohn wrote Norah's. I really enjoyed how each chapter switched between Nick and Norah's POV and that they overlapped enough to keep the story moving and connect the parts together. I thought the characters were well written. They are a couple of teens on the cusp of their adult life. We learn about them as they learn about each other. It is a fun and quick read. I have not seen the movie, but I am told by others that if you want to see the movie and read the book, you should see the movie first as the book is that much better. I plan to see the movie with the knowledge that it is different enough from the book that I know it won't be the exact same story. I am hoping I can still enjoy the movie anyway.
