Top 5 Paired-up in Class

Did Twilight start this trend?  I’m talking about the use of the “team them up in class – plot device” in order for the two main characters to meet. Since Twilight, I’ve followed protagonists bond over biology assignments, chemistry projects and English papers to name a few, all because their teacher happened to team them up in class. See the top 5 below:



1. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

As we all know, Bella and Edward connect during a biology class as lab partners. The rest is history.


2. Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

Brittany and Alex hate each others guts (or at least think they do), until they are paired up in chemistry class and forced to work on an assignment together. As the title suggests, soon another type of chemistry starts to develop.


3. Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Nora and the dark and mysterious Patch are paired up in biology class, and so their weird and uncomfortable relationship starts where we along with Nora have a hard time deciphering the true intentions of Patch.


4. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

Popular highschool cheerleader is paired up in English class to work on a Poe project with the outcast goth guy Varen. Slowly they start to grow fond of each other in a world interwoven with Poe’s stories.


5. Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Camelia is paired-up as lab partners with newly transferred Ben who seems to have a shady past. Ben is behaving weird around her, especially when accidentally touching her – which appears to happen more frequently than normal.
