Problem: Nick spots his ex-girlfriend heading towards him with a new guy
Response: Asks the girl next to him to be his girlfriend for five minutes
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.
Overall: 3 out of 5
