Deadly Little Secrets by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Reading level: Young Adult
Hardcover: 256 pages
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH

Some secrets shouldn't be kept...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.


I was really waiting forward to reading this book and it didn't disappointed me.
This book was amazing.

I like the rules:

" *Rule number one - Never assume
*Rule number two - Anything's possible
*Rule number three - Stop making excuses for Ben
*Rule number four - Don't trust anyone
*And rule number five - Don't go anywhere alone "

I liked the plot very much. I really enjoyed guessing who the stalker was, and I can tell you I never suspected of this person, I mean I was wondering about who could be and while I was reading I was like "It has to be this person" and then "no, maybe this one" but I never expected this person to be the stalker, never even once. It was a big surprise.
I liked the fact that the author lets us know about the stalkers toughs through his diary it was thrilling.

I found the characters well done except of her friends. I find them a bit flat. At some points they were OK, but the thing is "Your friend is being stalked and you keep the time making jokes about it?".

Camelia not telling her parent was another thing I didn't get, I mean, honestly, if I'm being stalked I'm telling my parents for sure. I know she didn't want to worry her mother, but didn't she think that perhaps she would be more worried if something happened to her?

I feel sorry for poor Ben. I believed in all he told, but just as Camelia I did doubt sometimes because it was easy to think he was lying though I were 99% sure he wasn't.

Overall this was a great book I really enjoyed reading. Maybe the final was a bit rushed, but well, this December we'll have the second part Deadly Little Lies to overcome it^^

I can't wait to read the second novel of The Touch series and I'll definitely will read more of her books.

Ah, and right now I'm very excited, cause I've just checked my mail and found a mail from telling me I won a copy of Love is Hell signed by Laurie Faria Stolarz.
