Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist : Rachel Cohn :Sign up for our newsletters! We anchor memories to music without even trying. Certain songs propel us out of the current moment to another time and place; sometimes for good, sometimes… not-so-good. But it's rare when we're conscious enough to pay attention and see each moment as a note, each event as a song, each connection with another person as a soundtrack. And if we're lucky, something or someone forces us to tune in and know when it's time to jam along with where the music is taking us. Nick, the straight bass player in a self-described queercore band, spots his most recent ex-girlfriend with a new guy and, in an effort to make her jealous, asks the first girl he sees to pretend to be with him for five minutes.
This compulsively readable novel takes place in less than 24 hours. At a New York club one night, Nick convinces a stranger to pose as his girlfriend in order to fool Tris, the girl who broke his heart. He does not guess though readers may that kissing Norah will lead to a long, complicated evening, and a new chance for love. Levithan Boy Meets Boy and Cohn Gingerbread reveal the clever construction of the book in an authors' note: they sent chapters back and forth, he writing as Nick, she as Norah. The novel has that pumped-up feeling of a story passed among friends who each add a section, spontaneously incorporating unforeseen elements. Levithan again creates outrageous characters and witty wordplay a "Playboygirl Bunny" bouncer asks Nick, "How long have the two of you been the two of you?

GREAT TEEN ROMANCES:
The novel was published in by Alfred F. Knopf Books for Young Readers. The chapters from Nick's perspective are written by Levithan while the chapters from Norah's perspective are written by Cohn. The novel is told from the alternating perspectives of Nick, the only straight member of a queercore rock band, and Norah, the daughter of a well-known music producer. After a concert, Nick sees his ex-girlfriend in the bar and asks Norah to pretend to be his girlfriend for five minutes. Norah agrees but only because she wants to find a ride for her very drunk friend Caroline. Through myriad circumstances, Nick and Norah find themselves spending the rest of the night together, heading to a strip club to watch nuns gyrate to the sound of music and sneaking into a hotel to make out.
