Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz


The first book in the Touch Series from Laurie Faria Stolarz, Deadly Little Secret, is about Camelia, your average 16-year-old girl, who becomes interested in Ben, the new boy at high school, who actually saves her life in the school parking lot.

Ben has a special gift, related to touch, which allows him to "see" things. That alone would leave him ostracized by most teens just for being so different. Add to that the rumor that he is somehow responsible for his ex-girlfriend's death, and Ben becomes a target for harassment.

When Camelia and another girl at her school, to a lesser degree, start having weird things happen, is Ben the one responsible? Where will the stalking lead? Should Camelia go back to her ex-boyfriend, Matt, who is still interested in her?

I wasn't very happy with the ending, though I assume the second book in the series will start at (or near) that point, removing some of my disappointment. Hopefully. . . .

My overall personal rating of Deadly Little Secret is a B+.

Was it like a cliff-hanger ending?
More disappointing than cliff-hanger. One character walks away for the "good" of the other character. So, the book could actually be a stand-alone with an ending that I didn't like, but I'm assuming they get together again in the next book since this a series. I could be wrong, though, of course!

Oh gosh, that's worse than a cliff-hanger alright. Hate when that happens! Maybe the next book will make it all worth it...hope so!
