  1. btbaceofdiam copyBoth envelopes were the same size, telling her that she and Akaila both had the same fate. – This line is from the scene when Kristian and Akaila received their acceptance letters from the fictional Copperfield University. It’s reminiscent of the time I got my acceptance letter from Winthrop University. I knew I got in because the package was the same as my best friend who also got accepted. She received hers first so I was able to see what it looked like.keep-calm-and-drink-kamikaze
  2. A minute or so later, he returned with Malik who was holding a Kamikaze in his hand. To give Malik the heads up on the investigation involving Jay, Kane visits Sapphire. Malik comes out the club with a cocktail, a Kamikaze, which is an equal mix of vodka, triple sec, and lime juice. I chose this drink after listening to, “Overnight Celebrity,” from Twista’s Kamikaze Curious to know what Kamikaze meant, I Googled it and discovered it was an alcoholic beverage. I needed a drink for the scene so inside the book it went.
  3. “You steer those Girl Scouts away.” Malik is referring to the police when he says this to Kane. Girl Scouts was a phrase my father used once when he felt like men were being cowards. It stuck with me so you’ll always see someone in the book refer to a man, specifically the police, as a Girl Scout.
