BookTalk & ARC Giveaway: A LINE IN THE DARK by Malinda Lo

My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won’t find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could’ve been better or what worked or didn’t work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it’s here I probably think it won’t injure your brain if you read it.

Jess and Angie are best friends, and even though Jess has long harbored romantic feelings for Angie, she manages to keep it a secret. But her feelings are bubbling out, finding expression in her artwork, especially the series of comics she works on that Angie is a fan of.

When Angie meets Margot, a girl from a neighboring private school, sparks fly – but some are from Jess. Angie and Margot instantly hit it off, but Jess struggles with anger, and more than a little jealousy. When a friend from Jess’ art program tells her an alarming story about Margot and her cohorts, Jess worries that warning Angie will only make her look spiteful.

With tension in their friendship seeping into her artwork, Angie has a hard time avoiding her feelings. Margot is unbearable, Angie is changing, and everything seems to be going wrong. When Angie invites Jess along to one of Margot’s parties, personalities explode, tempers escalate, and a line is crossed that leaves someone dead.
