Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist by Rachael Cohn and David Levithen
I usually don't get excited about the language in a book as long as it feels authentic. I have to tell you, I got really sick of the F word use in this story. I felt it detracted from its readability. That aside, it is an interesting premise. Two young adults who have just been destroyed by a breakup start with pretending to be dating to avoid their exes. They are strangers who get to know each other over the course of a night. Each chapter alternates point of view. We step into Nick and Nora's heads and their perception of events. The ending is beautiful and the best writing go the whole book.
