Have you ever read a book and wondered, "There has to be another side to this story." Many authors solve that mystery for you by giving you two, three, and even more voices and narrators in one novel in order to give you multiple perspectives of the same situation. In Dash and Lily's Book of Dares, Rachel Cohn and David Levithan co-write the story of two teens on a holiday scavenger hunt in New York City. A sweet romance blossoms with Dash and Lily through the clues in a red notebook passed between each other. The alternating chapters of each character creates the real feeling of how paths cross and misunderstandings occur in a relationship.
Told through letters between a couple over the course of ten years, Upstate by Kalisha Buckhanon is a story of raw emotion about Antonio, in jail as a sixteen year old for a horrendous crime, and Natasha, his girlfriend still in the outside world, and trying to sustain this strained relationship.
