Noami and Ely are best friends. Naomi loves and is in love with Ely, and Ely loves Naomi, but prefers to be in love with boys. So they create their No Kiss List of people neither of them is allowed to kiss. And this works fine - until Bruce.

Bruce is Naomi's boyfriend, so there's no reason to put him on the List. But Ely kissed Bruce even though he is boring. The result: a rift of universal proportions and the potential end of Naomi and Ely: the institution. Can these best friends come back together again? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Last book of 2011! It was great, at first I didn't like all of the changing perspectives, but by the end it made sense. It worked. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amanda Leigh | 2/13/2014

    " I was really excited to read this book because of how much I liked Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, however I could tell from the first chapter that I was not going to have the same fondness for this novel. I was right! I found that there was absolutely nothing redeeming: the characters were cringe worthy, the narrative sucked, and everytime I saw a little symbol on the page I literally shook my head. Not many novels make me seriously consider stopping midway through, but I really struggled with this one. Save yourself the time and don't bother. "

    " it was cute but Naomi was a little whiney for me and I really did not like the symbols that were used instead of the words. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alexa | 2/6/2014

    " Cutesy, lots of emotions..and dissecting emotions. And more emotions after that. Plus lots of use of symbols by Naomi which only sort of became clear in the end? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaitlyn | 2/1/2014

    " This wasn't a bad book. It would have gotten four stars, but Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist set the bar very high. And Naomi and Ely just weren't as charming. (Also, why is it so hard for Naomi to understand that ELY IS GAY. It's not that complicated.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki Tuason | 1/27/2014

    " I actually like it. At first, I was a little confused with all the POVs that was going on but then I got to hold on to it. I also love the fact that the book shows love in different ways and on different levels. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily Joyce | 1/24/2014

    " I loved Nick and Norah-- the alternating narrations, the joyful exploration of music. It had great characterizations, and presented a YA novel with some depth. Maybe Cohn and Levithan stretched themselves too thin with so many narrative strings, but the characters were weak and shallo, Naomi was one of the least sympathetic main characters I've read in a while. A bare scrape at some interesting possibilities. Also, what was with the pictograms? Distracting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 1/22/2014

    " I want to write a book with David Levithan. I'm not John Green, but I promise I wouldn't use emoticons. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelsey Jo | 1/20/2014

    " Of Cohn and Leviathan's collaborations, this is my favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marissa | 1/5/2014

    " Gabriel's chapters were my favorites. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ciara | 12/13/2013

    " Totally forgetable. But, it had a good storyline. I liked the way the chapters were set up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 FangFang | 11/28/2013

    " Naomi and Ely <3 <3 <3 so cute. too bad Ely is gay! *sad* "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hayley | 11/27/2013

    " I don't really know what to say about this book. Nick and Norah's infinite playlist is still my favorite, but this book was enjoyable to. Maybe not as memorable as nick and Norah's, but still good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aruna Muthumanickam | 10/26/2013

    " I think its more a personal bias towards David Levithan, rather than interest in the plot that persuaded me to read this book. Overall, it wasn't that bad, but it wasn't that great. The narration is witty at parts and the characters are real and that is why I LIKED THE BOOK. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Iffath | 4/29/2013

    " Compared to Nick & Norah, this was slow-paced and mellow, which I really liked. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam Callahan | 3/20/2013

    " Bruce The Second RULES! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katty | 2/17/2013

    " This was a great, quick read. I really like this team of writers, even though I have never read their individual books. Had the same feel of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, just approached a different subject. Really great, with quite a few laughs, check it out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 3/21/2012

    " Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List by Rachel Cohn (2007) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 eprptegshtgn | 6/2/2011

    " really interesting, I found it better than nick and norah's infinite playlist, the relationship between the two characters was fascinating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 meri | 5/22/2011

    " Not as enjoyable as the Cupcake/Gingerbread books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 5/19/2011

    " I was really disappointed with this book. It took so much for me to finish it. I got nothing out of it and felt like I had wasted my time reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 5/2/2011

    " Great humor and characters but also very meaningful and important look at relationships and love of all kinds. Definitely for urban or mature readers as it has raw moments (that work completely in the story but might blow the mind of a 12 year old from rural areas)! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess - The Tales Compendium | 4/25/2011

    " it was ok but not as good as their other collaborations "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Misha | 4/25/2011

    " It's a fun book, funny and quirky and all things good! 3.5/5 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meherin | 4/23/2011

    " Another great collab here. A great, real story about friendship and growing up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikya | 4/23/2011

    " Haha this book was awesome ! I got mad , happy and sad as the book went along... it keeps you thinking and never wanting to put the book down "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ying | 4/23/2011

    " THE STORY DRAGS ON AND ON AND ON. TOO MUCH ANGST. TOO MUCH UNREALISTIC ANGST. Seriously, Naomi-- HE'S GAY. And the whole Bruce 1, Bruce 2 thing and Robin male, Robin female... I can't even... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jess | 4/15/2011

    " First DNF for the year.
    I just couldn't handle the creepiness of Bruce the First, and the stereotypical gayness of Ely. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 mich | 3/24/2011

    " 3.5, thanks to the spectacular last few chapters that completely changed my mind about the book as a whole. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 3/20/2011

    " WOW that's an awesome book! its totally hilarious! it made me cry and laugh at the same time! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/11/2011

    " I was a big fan of both Nick and Norah's and Dash and Lily's but this one really didn't work for me. I thought both Naomi and Ely were pretty unlikeable and the book was just too busy with all the switching POVs. I almost didn't finish it. "
