Details: Product Description After being kissed by a mystery guy when the lights go out during a football game, Macy is determined to figure out which of three possible boys is the culprit in this funny, poignant, and achingly romantic novel from the author of Last Year’s Mistake. When the lights go out at a Georgia high school football game, senior Macy Atwood finds herself in the arms of a boy who kisses her senseless—but he’s gone by the time the lights come back on. All she knows is that there was something special—and oddly familiar—about her mystery kisser. Noah Granger, Ridgedale’s resident bad boy and newest transfer student, has no problem taking credit for the kiss, but Macy can’t shake the feeling that he’s lying. Especially since a photograph of Macy and former star football player Joel Hargrove resurfaced online moments before the blackout, a not-so-random reminder of how hard she fell for Joel last year. And how doing so ultimately sent her lifelong friendships with Meredith Kopala and Ben Collins up in literal smoke. Soon last year’s wounds begin to reopen as Macy realizes the events that unfolded during junior year are somehow tied to her mystery kisser. But the closer Macy gets to figuring it all out, the more she starts to worry that the boy who kissed her in the dark and the boy who is stealing her heart might be two very different people.

A Kiss in the Dark One SENIOR YEAR It’s funny how they say a picture is worth a thousand words, because the one I’m looking at has me pretty speechless. There’s nothing special about it. Not to anyone else, anyway. It’s a snapshot of me, Joel Hargrove, and Ben Collins after an impromptu game of basketball in Ben’s driveway on a sunny Saturday junior year. The beginning of what was supposed to be something amazing. But being that our friendships went up in literal smoke since the photo was taken almost a year ago, I have no idea why it’s currently staring back at me from the smudged surface of Jadie Donovan’s cell, posted to the school’s share site for everyone to see. “So who put it there if it wasn’t you?” Jadie yells over the bustle around us on the football field, blinking lashes coated in electric-blue mascara. Her lips are painted silver, and spiral ribbons of silver and teal spring out from her glossy black ponytail. “I thought you were finally talking to both of them again.” I sneak a peek at Meredith, who’s jumping up and down, waving her pom-poms a few feet to my left. She’s looking anywhere but at me, which I should be used to by now. “I mean, we are. Sort of. But it’s not like this.” I hold up the phone, indicating the photo. Not even close. Jadie shrugs and slips her cell into the back pocket of her jeans. “Guess you won’t be spotlighting that one on the blog this week. Not that a crap ton of people would notice if you did.” She shakes her head and returns her attention to the fancy black camera tattooed with RIDGEDALE YEARBOOK labels, flipping through her last shots of the game. She’s talking about our newest endeavor—the one that rose from the ashes of our defunct cheerleading careers—as yearbook photographers and keepers of the Ridgedale’s Finest page, the site where students and administrators upload their snapshots of the school year. She’s also exaggerating its obscurity, just a little bit. But I’m still hung up on the picture itself, and my eyes automatically dart to the metal platform in the center of the field, which is usually reserved for homecoming and graduation ceremonies. Because during tonight’s halftime, in addition to the usual performances by the
