Was Dash & Lily a name?

Dash & Lily is a romantic-drama, based on the book Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. The series has two books. In eight episodes, the first season will be about the events in the first book.

Lily (16-year-old unlucky-in-love 16-year old) listens to her brother's advice and places her red notebook on the shelf of her favourite bookshop. Lily is waiting to see if the right man will accept her dare in this book. Dash just so happens to come across her notebook, curious by her challenge, and looking for the perfect distraction takes Lily’s Book of Dares. The pair fall in love as they send one another on scavenger hunting across Manhattan. It could prove to be the greatest dare of their lives, as they try to discover if the two have the same chemistry in real life.
