Review: Deadly Little Secret (Touch #1) by Laurie Faria Stolarz

My Rating: 3 out of 5

Until three months ago, everything about 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 an art studio downtown. But when Ben, the mysterious new guy, starts junior year at her high school, Camelia's life becomes far from 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 he's trouble, even when her friends try to convince her otherwise. Instead 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.

This was a very quick, light read. I'm giving this a 3 out of 5 because that's all it really deserves, there was no real wow factor.
But I still liked it. It was quick and pacey, the story was entertaining and mysterious. The characters were all pretty good too. The author brings in more intrigue with the alternate points of view, spaced throughout the book. Camelia's relationship with Ben is unusual and the ending was sad though not one to really pull at my heart strings.
All in all a pleasant read to fill the time.
