Read A Line in the Dark Online Free - The line between best friend and something more is a line always crossed in the dark.
Jess Wong is Angie Redmond’s best friend. And that’s the most important thing, even if Angie can’t see how Jess truly feels. Being the girl no one quite notices is OK with Jess anyway. While nobody notices her, she’s free to watch everyone else. But when Angie begins to fall for Margot Adams, a girl from the nearby boarding school, Jess can see it coming a mile away. Suddenly her powers of observation are more curse than gift.
As Angie drags Jess further into Margot’s circle, Jess discovers more than her friend’s growing crush. Secrets and cruelty lie just beneath the carefree surface of this world of wealth and privilege, and when they come out, Jess knows Angie won’t be able to handle the consequences.
When the inevitable darkness finally descends, Angie will need her best friend.
“It doesn’t even matter that she probably doesn’t understand how much she means to me. It’s purer this way. She can take whatever she wants from me, whenever she wants it, because I’m her best friend.”
A Line in the Dark is a story of love, loyalty, and murder.

I really feel like this book was poorly marketed. If you're anything like me, you were drawn in by that gorgeous and sinister cover, and a title that seems to promise something dark and creepy - but the book's content is very different. There were some things I liked, but overall it lacked the da...

This was weird. And not in a good way.
I know this is marketing itself as dark, creepy, and atmospheric, but I'm going to be totally honest: it's not. There is embarrassingly little atmosphere. The tone is uninteresting, but occasionally inconsistent. And truly, this book just doesn’t go dark enou...

SEE MY VIDEO REVIEW HERE!
Unfortunately this had everything I wanted but nothing was executed to my satisfaction. The two halves of the book did not come together (first person in the 1st half and 3rd person + texts and transcripts in the 2nd half). There was an excess use of the modifie...

A Line in the Dark is a book that came highly recommended to me, and since I was already eyeballing it in the store, I felt like this would be perfect for a November read.
I was right, because I truly enjoyed this book.
The book follows a teenage girl named Jess, who is extremely passionate about d...

-Asian main character
-The first half of this book was so boring I almost quit many times
-I didn't like any of the characters so I just didn't care what happened to them
-there was a shift from first person to third...

I'm a sucker for a psychological thriller and the synopsis coupled with that gorgeous cover sold me.
I liked Jess well enough. She's loyal and smart and just a bit stalker-ish to keep me guessing on what she was up to. I felt like Angie, Margot, and Ryan were never really fleshed out. I'm...

To be honest, I was expecting this to be better, as I LOVED her last SF dulolgy, especially the first book Adaptation; those books were exciting and page-turning and had great alien conspiracies and bisexual romance. Unfortunately in A Line in the Dark there were quite a few things that didn't wo...

Let’s get something straight, this is not an f/f romance. There’s no “happy” ending about it. A Line in the Dark is a mystery thriller that fuses relevant themes in the plot. It isn’t dark or twisted per my standard. The plot is straightforward, it’s predictable. However, it’s engaging which what...

A Line in the Dark is the first contemporary mystery I've ever loved.
It's a story about unhealthy friendships and relationships between three teenage girls, all three of them queer.
The narrator is Jess Wong. She's Chinese-American, she has always loved art, and she's in love with her be...
