Noteworthy Passages: Kiss in the Dark

Kiss in the Dark by Lauren Henderson
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Pub. Date: April 13th, 2010
Pages: 247
Series: Scarlett Wakefield, #3
Age Level: 14+

Synopsis via Goodreads
With Dan McAndrews's murder finally behind her, Scarlett has high hopes for a fresh start at Wakefield Hall Collegiate, the elite English boarding school her grandmother runs. Unfortunately, those hopes are dashed when her nemesis, the infamous Plum Saybourne, is transferred to the school. Plum wastes no time turning Scarlett’s impressionable classmates against her.

Scarlett has dealt with Plum’s nasty schemes before, and she can handle her archenemy very nicely, thank you—until Plum sets her sights on Scarlett’s best friend, Taylor, and new boyfriend, Jase. Then Scarlett is more than willing to fight for what’s rightfully hers.

Things only get worse after Scarlett becomes entangled in a mysterious death on campus. Scarlett is compelled to investigate because she wants to protect someone close to her. She never imagines that she’ll uncover secrets related to her parents’ fatal accident so many years ago. . . .

Noteworthy Passages

Scarlett, Taylor, and Jase; pg. 103
"It's an hour before last-lesson bell," I say. "She can't get back here till then."
"Oh yeah?" Taylor says grimly. "What is she hasn't got a class scheduled, and your grandma tells her what happened to her niece, and she decides to come back here and check that we're not drinking her booze and photographing the penguins doing freaky stuff to each other?"
"Penguins?" Jase mutters in disbelief. He looks into the living room. "Blimey," he says, taking in the scene. "Hardcore."

Scarlett and Jase; pg. 115
"She just keeps digging till she gets to you," I mumble furiously. "I didn't really want to hit her, but she was going to slap me first and--"
"It's okay, Scarlett. I don't think you're some sort of violent psycho, I promise," he says hugging me. "My dad used to say all kinds of stuff, but that girl could make a nun so angry she'd brain her with a crucifix."


I found both of these passages absolutely hilarious and hope ya'll were able to get a laugh out of them as well. If you'd like to know more on my thoughts regarding this serious, I have included links to my review of Kiss in the Dark and the two books before it. All of which should be SPOILER FREE.
