This is the story of one long, crazy, night in the lives of a bass playing guy and the girl he meets and asks "Would you mind being my girlfriend for the next 5 minutes?" Nick has just seen his ex girlfriend, who broke his heart, walk into the club with another guy, where he is playing in his band. The girl is not a fan of his ex, signals her agreement by kissing him. So begins the night of their lives, a night of taxi drivers who are wise, dancing, all night cafes, falling in and out of love, music, laughter, heartache, embarrasment and night in Manhattan.
This book has become a classic and the movie is about to be released. Those of us who have read the book are really looking forward to the movie. Hope they don't change too much though.
This novel is only available in the senior school due to the 'bold' language used.
