Naomi & Ely's No Kiss List by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

The authors of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist are back in another alternative voice book. Naomi and Ely have lived across the hall in their New York apartment building for their entire lives. They both understand each other in a way no one else does. Until the unthinkable happens. Ely kisses Naomi's boyfriend.

Now Naomi has lost her trust in Ely. Even though she wasn't all that happy with Bruce the Second, she can't believe Ely kissed her boyfriend. He wasn't on their No Kiss List, but he should have been! Both Naomi and Ely are left floundering without the other. And everyone else is affected by the separation.

This is a great book told from many different points of view. Sometimes confusing, it's still laughable and intriguing, all in one.
