secrrt Lists with This Book. Two stars might be just a little too generous, but that’s me, all heart. At the beginning of the summer, Camelia almost got hit by a car, but a mysterious boy pushed her out of the way and then disappeared without a trace.
Camellia spent three months wondering about the boy, wanting to thank him for saving her life. When the new school year started, he was suddenly there, but so were the rumors that he killed his girlfriend and was exonerated due to lack of evidence. Camelia feels weirdly attracted to this boy, Ben, despite rumors that are getting wilder by the minute and his obnoxious behavior towards her.
Deadly Little Secret (Touch, #1) by Laurie Faria Stolarz
At the same time, she starts getting weird phone calls and presents in the mail. It would appear that someone is stalking her, but is it Ben or someone else entirely? I think you can secreet, just by reading this short description, what kind of book Deadly Little Secret is. She was attracted to him, but I never really understood why, nor did I understand why he reciprocated those feelings. I added deadoy second star just for that.

Jul 25, Kristy rated it liked it. So the beginning half laurir this was way too reminescent of Twilight. It starts off with a near death accident You got it, our creepy guy Ben that she has never met until that moment 3. The have a science lab class together, where Ben acts as if Camelia is repulsvie. Everyone at school thinks Ben is creepy and Camelia shouldn’t be hanging around him 5.
Ben has a secret Camelia runs out into danger There is someone wanting to kill Stloarz.
solarz Two guys, one girl. High school setting Still there are some differences in the books, like: Ben is not a Vampire, he is psyhometric. We get to read from the psycho killer’s journal entries 3. Seriously the 1st pages feels like you are reading someone’s interpretation of Twilight. The last pages do get somewhat interesting, but it just doesn’t make up for the rest for me. I’m stolarzz ‘Deadly little Secret’ 2.

The story didn’t have much going on at all. What was there flowed quickly and the whole book was read in a few hours so that was one good thing. Camelia meets Ben when he saves her life. This part and the whole scene as partners at school felt a bit too Twilightish There were quite a few similarities in the sholarz as well 2.
There were quite a few similarities in the plot deadlh well that I won’t go into because several of my GR friends have already listed them, so I don’t feel the need to do secrey again. Camelia is being stalked and she’s also trying to find out more about the mysterious Ben. The rumor around school is that Ben was somehow responsible for his ex-girlfriend’s death.
The stalker’s narration did feel creepy at times, but not really scary. It just felt a lauri too silly and juvenile. Not to put down any fans of this series, but it feels like this book is more for younger teens like than young adults, and certainly, in my opinion, not entertaining enough to hold the attention of adults.
I only say this because the “mystery” was kinda easy to figure out for me The way I would talk you would get the idea that I hated this book, which is completely untrue.
I just expected more. I might even continue this series, but I would like the writing to make me feel anything for these characters. Right now I don’t because Camelia seems totally emotionless, her friends seem like a-holes, and Ben is the only character I kinda-sorta liked. Based off the idea this book started with it had potential to be a very intriguing story, but it just fell flat, and didn’t isolate itself from the various other paranormal sttolarz out there.
Recommended for younger teens.
Touch Series by Laurie Faria Stolarz
I don’t think it has any violence of sexual content. I can’t really remember, stoalrz is another bad point for secrdt book. It’s not memorable at all. View all 5 comments.

My 12 year old self would have loved Deadly Little Secret and given it at least 4-stars. What I didn’t enjoy about this book was the lack of depth.
Camila is not very reflective, and we d To be fair, my 2-star review comes from the viewpoint of an adult reading a novel meant for kids in their early teens. Camila is not very reflective, and we don’t know her thoughts beyond laufie is imediately happening to her. While Bella droned on and on and on and on!
This makes it difficult for the readers hearts deadlyy go pitter-patter along with Camila when she spends time with Ben. Not a bad book, but not one of the young adult books that will also be cherrished by adults. It’s great if you have had a really bad week llttle work, and just want to be entertained without having to think about anything too much ; Aug 29, Jennifer Wardrip rated it it was amazing Shelves: Reviewed by May A.
She doesn’t see him again, until the first day of her junior year. His name is Ben Carter and everybody in school claims that he killed his girlfriend.
