'Nick: I know this is going to sound strange, but would you mind being my girlfriend for the next five minutes? Norah: I answer by putting my hand around his neck and pulling his face down to mine.' With one electric kiss, the five-minute couple of Nick and Norah sets off on an uncharted adventure that turns into a long night of falling in and out of love, in the alternative club scene of New York City. Daring, intense, funny, sexy and very, very real, this is a first date of infinite charm and surprise.
'It's volatile writing, emotionally charged and sensory, with a fair amount of strong language that actually enhances the setting, characters and story.'Good Reading, July 2007'...above all, this novel captures the intense relationship of young people with their music...the sort of book to become a cult classic with Year 11 and up.'Adelaide Advertiser, 7 July 2007'...such a spark of spontaneity, authenticity and fun, reading it is a bit like watching a high-wire act. Thrilling stuff.'State Library of Victoria Newsletter, December 2006
