Overview

NOW A MAJOR motion picture starring Michael Cera (Juno and Superbad) and Kat Dennings (The 40 Year-Old Virgin)! Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist is a comedy about two teens thrust together for one hilarious, sleepless night of adventure in a world of mix tapes, late-night living, and, live, loud music. Nick frequents New York’s indie rock scene nursing a broken heart and Norah is questioning all of her assumptions about the world. Though they have nothing in common except for their taste in music, their chance encounter leads to an all-night quest to find a legendary band’s secret show and ends up becoming the first date that could change both their lives.

From YA fan-favorites Rachel Cohn and David Levithan comes the story of Nick and Norah. This movie tie-in edition also includes an 8-page photo insert from the film, as well as a map of Manhattan, detailing all of the sites Nick and Norah go to on their all-night date.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
So you're a guy; you're at a band show and your ex, the girl who dumped you, walks in with the new guy. Looking for a safe exit, you ask the girl you happen to sitting with to be your girlfriend for five minutes…. You're a girl; you're at a get-together and your least favorite female strolls in. The stranger sitting next to you asks you to be his five-minute date. So what do you? You lock lips…. Nick and Norah's instant connect begins a roller-coaster "first date" that takes them through Manhattan and into themselves. A novel concept that works.
From the Publisher
"Electric, sexy . . . and genuinely poignant, this is a compelling story of the risks and thrills of burgeoning intimacy." - The Bulletin, Starred
Publishers Weekly
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?"), and Cohn brings to life another rich punk rock girl. The two see a secret show on the Lower East Side, pig out in a Russian diner, and get caught making out in an ice room at the Times Square Marriott, all the time wondering if they can let go of their past loves and risk another heartbreak. Much of the novel's energy comes from the rapid-fire repartee between the two leads, plus perhaps the most vivid character, Tris-Nick's Id-driven ex and a classmate of Norah's, who ends up giving Nick advice and Norah kissing lessons. Readers will likely enjoy the ride, even if it is obvious where these two are headed. Ages 14-up. (May) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Cars that won't start, bands called Where's Fuzzy?, and vintage gasoline attendant jackets with names embroidered under the station logo--all are part of a novel that is sure to become a staple among high school kids. It is written in highly engaging alternating chapters from the perspectives of Nick and Norah, who spend one really long evening (into morning) together in New York City. It starts off with Nick asking Norah, "I know this is going to sound strange, but would you mind being my girlfriend for the next five minutes?" Nick is a Jersey boy, the only straight member of a homosexual band called The !@#$ Offs, and Norah is a flannel wearing daughter of a high-powered music executive who turned down Brown in order to follow her former boyfriend to a kibbutz. The two unwittingly share a number of things: a love of punk bands, recently broken (as in ripped out, spat upon and trampled) hearts, and the fact that they are both straight-edgers, meaning that neither of them smoke, drink or do drugs. The authors have numerous young adult publications of their own; Cohn's include Gingerbread and Shrimp, and Levithan's include Boy Meets Boy and Are We There Yet? This is their first book together. While it contains a great deal of profanity and numerous sexual passages; all of that notwithstanding, it is still a recommended read for high schoolers. 2006, Alfred A. Knopf/Random House, and Ages 14 up.

VOYA
When he spots Norah in a packed bar, under-aged bass player Nicks asks her to be his girlfriend for "the next five minutes." This great readers' hook is actually a ploy for Nick to conceal himself from Tris, his ex. Norah, who has turned down acceptance into Brown, plays along with a lingering kiss, but the improvisational romance hits a rocky start. She does not want to be "some 7-Eleven quick stop on his slut train." From there, a wild ride of attraction, anger, uncertainty, lust, and finally love blasts through a single Manhattan night into dawn. Laced with musical name droppings of punk, heavy metal, and even oldies songs and groups (Abba gets a nod), the accomplished authors create an alternating-points-of-view romance that is edgy, sexual, and oh-so realistic. Hip and bold descriptive phrases highlight this book-a novel that will achieve cult status with older teens. Readers become part of a club's unrestrained chaos when the band plays a Green Day cover and the pair becomes "seven years old and dancing like we spit out the Ritalin while Mom wasn't looking." Nick and Norah, both recovering from lousy relationships, lug around emotional baggage that helps them to connect. The would-be lovers are funny, do stupid things, doubt themselves, and teens will adore them. F-bombs are dropped throughout the book, but it works. These characters are not "gosh" or "shucks" people. Repartee spices up the dialogue-perhaps a tribute to William Powell and Myrna Loy, the Nick and Nora Charles of the 1934 film The Thin Man. VOYA CODES: 4Q 4P S A/YA (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; Broad general YA appeal; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12; Adult-marketed book recommended forYoung Adults). 2006, Knopf, 192p., and PLB Ages 15 to Adult.

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-What happens when two witty, wise, but vulnerable teens meet by accident at a chaotic punk rock club? They fall in love, of course. While both are dealing with the fallout of failed relationships and the infinite hurt that accompanies them, they are questioning everything about themselves, their friends, and their future paths. The passion and intelligence of these characters, along with the authors' intimate knowledge of and complete respect for their audience, make this novel unique. Told in alternating chapters over the course of a single night, the narratives create a fully fleshed-out picture of both teens, informed by their love of music, their devotion to their friends, and their clear-eyed view of the world. These kids don't drink or do drugs and it's solely their obsession with music that takes them to these clubs. One of Norah's relatives calls her a "potty mouth," and that's no exaggeration. Throughout the book, the expletives fly fast and furious, but they are more about personal expression and in-your-face attitude than about strong emotions. Yet, there is also considerable depth and sensitivity. Norah explains the Jewish concept of tikkun olam-the responsibility to heal a fractured world-and Nick comes up with an original spin on it. There are many heart-stopping, insightful moments in this supremely satisfying and sexy romance. A first-rate read.-Tracy Karbel, Glenside Public Library District, Glendale Heights, IL Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The wattage goes way up as two of the bright lights of contemporary writing for teens come together for an incandescent he said/she said night of storytelling. Nick from Hoboken is the songwriter, bassist and token straight guy for a queer/punk band; Norah from Englewood Cliffs is the privileged daughter of a recording exec who loves nothing better than the music. The story's written in alternating chapters in their two voices over a single madcap night. Nick's still hurting from his breakup with Tris, a blonde bombshell, and Norah from Tal, for whom she was never Jewish enough, vegan enough or political enough. When Nick sees Tris at the club where he's playing, he asks Norah to be his "girlfriend for five minutes" and a luscious kiss. On to another club, through various hardcore bands, rain on a Sunday morning, an encounter in the ice and soda alcove at the Marriott Marquis-all the while rooting for these smart-mouthed, but vulnerable teens to reach each other through all the kissing and music. There's perfectly captured teen music-geek talk and delicious stuff about kissing and what lies beyond. Sensual and full of texture. (Fiction. YA)

Chapter One

1. NICK
I find Dev at the bar, talking to a guy our age who looks familiar in that Type kind of way. When I get to where they're standing, I'm introduced as "the bass god, Nick," and he's introduced as "Hunter from Hunter." Dev thanks me for being equipment bitch, and from the way the conversation doesn't continue from there I know I'm interrupting. If it was Thom, my agitation would probably be noticed. But Dev needs you to spell emotions out for him, and right now I'm not in the mood. So I just tell him where I left the stuff and pretend I'm going off to search for a clear spot on the bar to summon the bartender from. And once I'm pretending that's the truth, I figure it might as well be the truth. I still can't see Tris, and there's a small part of me that's wondering if it was even her in the crowd. Maybe it was someone who looked like Tris, which would explain the guy who didn't look like anybody.

Are You Randy? stop playing their instruments one by one, until the lead singer croons a final, a cappella note. I wish for their sake I could say the club falls into silence at this, but in truth the air is one-half conversation. Still, that's better than average, and the band gets a lunge of applause and cheers. I clap, too, and notice that the girl next to me puts twofingers in her mouth to whistle old-fashioned style. The sound is clear and spirited, and makes me think of Little League. The girl is dressed in a flannel shirt, and I can't tell whether that's because she's trying to bring back the only fashion style of the past fifty years that hasn't been brought back or whether it's because the shirt is as damn comfortable as it looks. She has very pale skin and a haircut that reads private school even though she's messed it up to try to hide it. The next band opened for Le Tigre on their last tour, and I figure this girl's here to see them. If I was a different kind of guy, I might try to strike up a friendly conversation, just to be friends. But I feel that if I talk to someone else right now, all I'll be able to do is unload.

Thom and Scot would probably be ready to go if I wanted them to, but I'm pretty sure Dev hasn't figured out yet whether he's coming back with us or not, and I'd be an asshole to put him on the spot and ask. So I'm stuck and I know it, and that's when I look to my right and see Tris and her new guy approaching the beer-spilled bar to order another round of whatever I'm not having. It's definitely her, and I'm definitely fucked, because the between-band rush is pressing toward me now and if I try to leave, I'll have to push my way out, and if I have to push my way out, she'll see me making an escape and she'll know for sure that I can't take it, and even if that's the goddamn truth I don't want her to have actual proof. She is looking so hot and I am feeling so cold and the guy she's with has his hand on her arm in a way that a gay friend would never, ever think of, and I guess that's my own proof. I am the old model and this is the new model and I could crash out a year's worth of time on my bass and nothing, absolutely nothing, would change.

She sees me. She can't fake surprise at seeing me here, because of course she fucking knew I'd be here. So she does a little smile thing and whispers something to the new model and I can tell just from her expression that after they get their now-being-poured drinks they are going to come over and say hello and good show and--could she be so stupid and cruel?--how are you doing? And I can't stand the thought of it. I see it all unfolding and I know I have to do something--anything--to stop it.

So I, this random bassist in an average queercore band, turn to this girl in flannel who I don't even know and say:

"I know this is going to sound strange, but would you mind being my girlfriend for the next five minutes?"

2. NORAH
Randy from Are You Randy? insists the bassist from the queercore band is a 'mo, but I told him No, the guy is straight. Whether or not he's responsible for his band's shit lyrics (Fuck the Man / Fuck the Man--what's that trite crap?), I have no idea, but he's 'no 'mo. Trust me. There are certain things a girl just knows, like that a fourth minute on a punk song is a bad, bad idea, or that no way does a Jersey-boy bassist with Astor Place hair who wears torn-up, bleach-stained black jeans and a faded black T-shirt with orange lettering that says When I say Jesus, you say Christ, swing down boy-boy alley; he's working the ironic punk boy--Johnny Cash angle too hard to be a 'mo. Maybe he's a little emo, I told Randy, but just because he doesn't look like a Whitesnake-relic-reject like all of your band, does not automatically mean the guy's gay.

The incidental fact of his straightness doesn't mean I want to be NoMo's five-minute girlfriend, like I'm some 7-Eleven quick stop on his slut train. Only because I am the one loser here who hasn't lost all her senses to beer, dope, or hormones do I have the sense to hold back my original instinct--to yell back "FUCK, NO!" in response to NoMo's question.

I have to think about Caroline. I always have to think about Caroline.

I noticed NoMo loading equipment after his band's set while his bandmates abandoned him to score some action. I understand that scene. I am that scene, cleaning up everyone else's mess.

NoMo dresses so bad--he has to be from Jersey. And if Jersey Boy is equipment bitch, he has a van. The van's probably a piece of scrap metal with a leaking carburetor that as likely as not will pop a tire or run out of gas in the middle of the Lincoln Tunnel, but it's a risk I have to take. Somebody's got to get Caroline home. She's too drunk to risk taking her on the bus. She's also so drunk she'll go home with Randy if I'm not there to take her back to my house where she can sleep it off. Groupie bitch. If I didn't love her so much, I'd kill her.

From behind him I don't see Caroline but I do see that stupid bitch, Tris, rhymes with bris, cuz that's what she'll do to a guy, rip apart his piece. She's doing her Tris strut with her big boobs sticking out in front of her, wiggling her ass in that way that gets the instant attention of every dumb schmo in her wake, even the gay boys, who seem to be highly represented here tonight, NoMo notwithstanding. She's coming right toward me. No No NOOOOOOOOOOO. How did she find out Caroline and I would be here tonight? Does she have lookouts with text pagers set up every place Caroline and I go on a Saturday night, or what?
Boyfriend to the rescue! I answer NoMo's question by putting my hand around his neck and pulling his face down to mine. God, I would do anything to avoid Tris recognizing me and trying to talk to me.

    A Modern Love Story

    I read the book about three months before the movie came out. I laughed, cried and everything in between. Trust me this book has a little bit of everything. After Nick gets off stage he spots his ex-girlfriend, desperate to look like everything is cool he asks Norah to be his girlfriend for five minutes. Norah says okay just to make his ex (her enemy) jealous. Five minutes leads anywhere from a drunk best friend to stealing a named jacket.<BR/>This book is very...realistic in a way because something like that could very well happen in real life but at the same time it isnt something that you see every day. This book portrays a teenager's mind in the works. I dont expect the movie to be half as good.Please rate this review, Thank you!

    KEEP THE AUDIENCE MATURE

    Authors, Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, contribute very profound and interesting ideas that invite the reader to question not only their life, but the life of those they affect. I loved how this book made me think of my own personal life in a way that I had never thought of before. But as I felt myself being absorbed into the book, with each profound word and sexual comment I withdrew from the book a little more. I felt that both the obscene words and sexual situations did nothing to add to the sheer brilliance of the book. If anything, they took away from the overall message and credibility.<BR/>This book is an amazing love story between two teenagers who come to meet together at a concert by accident. Through one night, they find themselves slipping into each other as their love grows.<BR/>But, at an age of 15, even I felt myself uncomfortable from some of the situations in the book. They were completely unnecessary in developing the overall message of this book.<BR/>However, well written, I encourage other teenagers to read this book, but be cautious as you read it in the company of your family and be cautious with who you share it with.<BR/>Age 16 and Up.

    Awesome Read for Teens

    Not only does this book weave you around the the beautiful city of New York City, but it also describes the story of two music soul mates that finally meet. The book easily relates to teenagers, especially who love eclectic music. The back and forth chapter of narration from Nick and Norah's perspective, shows the insecurities and doubts when your starting a relationship. I loved this book and truly would recommend it to all and everyone.

    Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist

    This is a very good book for teenagers to read. It is very different than what you normally see in books. There are parts that dragged on a bit, but it was not so bad that it was a huge bother. My favorite thing about the book is that you get both sides of the story. I love that it jumps back and forth between Nick's and Norah's points of view. If you have already seen the movie please do not base this book on some expectatioj you may have gotten from the movie. The book is much better and the movie was actually somewhat disappointing.

    Amazing read

    The authors' writing styles are completely on point. They made the book so realistic and loveable, i couldn't put it down. The storyline and writing is so original and refreshing, and i found so many connections between norah's character and myself. The peek into the innerworkings of nick and norah's teenage minds is very real, and i found myself reading this over and over again. This has quickly become one of my alltime favorite reads, and i highly recomment it. A full five stars.

    I finished this book in 1 day. I didn't quite understand it since I rushed through it so I decided to read it again. When I read it again, I also finished it within a day and I understood it more. I love the book. I really do. The ending, however, seemed to be rushed. I understand that it had to end somehow but you could tell the ending was rushed. The ending was terrible but everything else was pretty good. I really liked how it was written in Nick and Norah's point of view so the readers would know each character's point of view without the book being written in third person. Again, good story but bad ending.

    Amazing read

    One of my favorite books. I originally read this book after loving the film, and the book is even better. The story is well-paced and effectively captures the feelings of the given moment. The back-and-forth writing style of Cohn and Levithan adds a level of depth and uniqueness to both Nick & Norah. I absolute reccomend this book.

    I love how it was hopelessly romantic in a cute way but not too cheesey. It was sorta akward being in thougghts like that watching the movie you cant hear the thougghts. So it was better than the movie.

    Love the movie, disliked the book

    One of my favorite movies is N&N Playlist. So I was excited to read the book but was disappointed that the characters were different, completely. I like having the background on the characters and knowing what happened later on that night/day...but overall I wouldnt suggest reading this if you enjoyed the movie.

    never should have.....

    I saw the movie...and disliked it. I saw the book and was like the book is probably better than the movie. But jeez the book was sort of funny...but to me it was just way too unrealistic, and too much happens to fast. But maybe thats the point? Idk.. good luck maybe you will actually enjoy it...

    I absolutely loved this book! Hands down to David Levithan and


    I absolutely loved this book! Hands down to David Levithan and Rachel Cohn for a wonderful collaboration of another HE SAID/ SHE SAID type of novel. I like it when characters have their own perspectives in a book or a point of view for those who understand that better. It gives us a better sense of the characters' selves,  the background of their lives, why they turned out like that. 
    What's wonderful about the way they wrote each point of view, is that their back stories are glimpsed, but is enough to give the readers a sense of kinship. And it is just a 183 page novel! I think for something so short, it delivered well.
    Now let's talk characters. Nick is the awkward, lanky guy, who plays bass and is trying to avoid his ex-girlfriend because he's ultra- sensitive and wants to move on but has a hard time doing it. He's adorable! I dunno. At first, you'd find it annoying that he's actually so obsessed with the thought of his ex but then you'd understand afterwards and you'd cheer him on anyway when it came to Norah
    Then, there's Norah. The cute, slap in your face, insensitive chick, who just wants to be loved like most people, but is afraid that the relationship she might enter again, may lead to her once failed relationship. I really love Norah and her wild imagination and how she really wants to have a good relationship with Nick.
    One thing that concerned me about the book is the language. Though the writing style is something I commend, censorship for kids who may have had the time to grab this from a bookshelf, may be necessary. I don't really mind the use of curse words that may have dominated an entire page, lets say, page 95??? 
    But in all goodness of writing and story wise, NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST, is the one of the most, fun, well-rounded books I've read. Decent? I'm old enough to take it...
    Warning: Children of the universe, you may wanna consider finding another YA to read, unless you're 15 or 18, you're good.

    Terrible book. Don't waste your time and, more importantly, your money. All the characters talk the same. They all use the word F-U-C-K like a zillion times. The plot is stupid and boring and so are the characters. I just can't understand how this book got published, let alone how it was made into a motion picture. If you're into Teen Drama, try The Perks of Being a Wallflower or anything by John Green.

    Result: An unexpected, fun filled night in New York City

    I  just had to pick this up when I heard that the story took place over one night! The story was told in alternating chapters full of hilarious
    and sarcastic commentary from Nick and Norah. They were both battling heart breaks when they bumped into each other at a show.
    My favorite part of the story was how music played such an important role. Throughout the night, Nick and Norah constantly made
    references, tossed out song lyrics, and even chased after one of their favorite bands for a secret show.  

    This was a short and fun read that made me laugh throughout the whole night.

    Fast read

    It had a few "slow" parts, but it was pretty action-packed overall. It was very funny and I thought it was really interesting how the story is told by alternating between his and her perspective. The author does a good job at establishing the characters' personalities.
    You'll like this book if you like reading about rebellious teenagers with a music interest.

    Good read!

    I like the storyline and details in the text. I fell in love with the characters. A little foul language, but overall good.
