2006 Young Adult Novel Award Winner

RT Rating

When two of the best YA authors team up, hopes are high, and Cohn and Levithan more than meet them.

Nick is the only straight guy in a "queercore" band. Norah is the straight-edge daughter of a punk-loving record exec. They meet at a gig, Nick asks Norah to be his girlfriend "for five minutes," and an all-night journey begins. By sunrise, Nick and Norah will have fallen out of love and found themselves and each other.

The writers do an excellent job of creating a New York City story over the course of one night. The relationship is so good and real that the pages go by too quickly. (May, 192 pp., $16.95, ISBN: 0375935312, 14 and up, HC)
