Deadly Little Lies : A Touch Novel
Last fall, Camelia fell for Ben, the mysterious new boy at school with a very mysterious gift--pyschometry, the ability to sense the future through touch. But just as Camelia and Ben's romance began to heat up, he abruptly left town. Brokenhearted, Camelia has spent the last few months researching psychometry, and experiencing her own strange brushes with premonition. Even once Ben returns, Camelia can't get close enough to share her secret with him. Despite the romantic tension between them, Ben remains aloof, avoiding contact. Then when a series of eerie notes echoes the threats of last semester--and Ben keeps his distance--Camelia makes the painful decision to move on. Her hot new co-worker, Adam, seems good for her in ways Ben wasn't. But when Camelia and Adam start dating, a chilling sequence of events upturns secrets from Ben's past--and Adam's. Someone is lying, and it's up to Camelia to figure out who-before it's too late.

It has been four months since Ben left Camelia. Since then, Camelia has been researching psychometry, the mysterious gift that Ben has. Camelia is sure that she has this power as well, like it rubbed off on her somehow. Then Ben comes back to school. He keeps his distance, but then breaks it, confusing Camelia. He wanted space, so Camelia decides to finally give up and move on. She meets Adam at Knead. He seems to care about her, but he isn't Ben. Camelia is also starting to get more weird photos and letters. She is even hearing things - warnings. Someone is lying to her. But who? Ms. Stolarz's writing is brilliant. I love it, and it is so easy to read, and keep reading, until you're done with the whole novel. The characters are so lovable. I found myself rooting for Camelia and Ben the whole time. The "love triangle" is a great addition to the novel, because it really puts a strain on Camelia's and Ben's relationship, or lack thereof. And there being another stalker, or weirdo, in her town is crazy. DEADLY LITTLE LIES is another amazing story. I have yet to find a book by this author that I do not like. I cannot wait to find out what happens in the next book in the TOUCH series, DEADLY LITTLE GAMES! *Gold Star Award Winner!show moreby TeensReadToo
