Touting them as “the painless way to learn SAT vocabulary,” Spark Notes introduces a series of SAT vocabulary novels. Busted, the tale of a college freshman who “goes undercover in a prep school to bust a drug ring,” is available online:
Ask anyone â€” well, anyone who knows me – and they will tell you that I have this uncanny ability for finding the fun. It doesnâ€™t matter how sedate the situation, how staid the participants, I, Kim Stratford, will inspire laughter where there is only misery. I can bring effervescence to places where boredom seems to permeate the very walls. I am the indomitable mistress of mayhem.
Hmm. Seems pretty painful to me. Via Caterina.
