Review of Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Deadly Little Secret (Touch #1)
by Laurie Faria Stolarz
Hardcover, 252 pages
Published December 16th 2008 by Hyperion

From Goodreads:
Up until three months ago, everything in sixteen-year-old Camelia's life had been fairly ordinary: decent grades; an okay relationship with her parents; and a pretty cool part-time job at the art studio downtown. But when Ben, the mysterious new guy, starts junior year at her high school, Camelia's life becomes anything but ordinary.

Rumored to be somehow responsible for his ex-girlfriend's accidental death, Ben is immediately ostracized by everyone on campus. Except for Camelia. She's reluctant to believe the rumors, even when her friends try to convince her otherwise. She's inexplicably drawn to Ben...and to his touch. But soon, Camelia is receiving eerie phone calls and strange packages with threatening notes. Ben insists she is in danger, and that he can help--but can he be trusted? She knows he's hiding something... but he's not the only one with a secret.

From the best-selling author of Blue is for Nightmares comes a story of paranormal romance that's sure to be a thrilling and chilling teen favorite.

My thoughts:
I read this with a Pen Pal on Goodreads and we both pretty much had the same thoughts about this book.

The first half of this book reminded me a lot of Twilight, but not near as good as Twilight.

Ben says that Camelia is in danger and everyone thinks that Ben is a danger to her, but he says there is something else. He wants to help her.

This book was a quick book to read. At first I thought it was okay, but when I stop back and think about the book, I kind of draw a blank since it was a few days ago that I read it. So it's a pretty forgettable book.

2 stars out of 5

  1. Drawing a blank is not a good thing...maybe I don't want to read this one after all???
