Deadly Little Secret (Touch #1)
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.

When I read about this book I thought it genuinely sounded unique and interesting. I do still feel it was a unique story, but I still felt a bit disappointed by it. 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.

His name is Ben Carter and everybody in school claims that he killed his girlfriend. Camelia doesn't know who or what to believe, but she does know one thing -- she is irresistibly drawn to him and his touch.
But shortly after Ben's sudden appearance in her life, Camelia begins receiving chilling phone calls, various packages, a ...more
What I didn't enjoy about this book was the lack of depth. I kept feeling that I was reading a book that *really* wants to be a made-for-tv movie. It has a lot of dialouge ~ while it is interesting and keeps the book moving, there is nothing behind it. Camila is not very reflective, and we d ...more

Feel like Nancy Drew ;D
At first I had a lot of suspects but then I finally limited them down to one and I was right!
'She just won’t listen. And so I’ve started a plan. I just hope she appreciates all my efforts—all my work to make her happy. Once and for all.'
God he's crazy!
This book was making me crazy, I needed to find out who it was and therefore I could not put this down.
She was out in front of school this morning, looking for attention. Like a total ...more

i have seen a lot of reviews that this one is very twilight-ish, i didn't believe it cause does the title Deadly Little Secret sound twilight in the making to you??? i don't think so.
but then this is the first scene of the book
the very famous car saving scene in twilight, so i was still in denial that this one is twilight in the making kind of book. but then the resemblance are piling up like:
camelia and ben became LAB PARTNERS. and Ben has this "cold" touc ...more
I also didn't like when Camelia's best friends, Kimmie and Wes, were in the dialog. They were very immature and annoying. Wes didn't have a male's point of view and Kimmie sounded like a ten year old.
I also didn't understand how every guy that Camelia tal ...more
First of all, the one liners are awful. The first 50 pages were like a stupid disney sitcom and I was cringing the whole time.
Next, there's the fact that this whole thing is a wannabe Twilight. The guy is like a sad, annoying version of Edward and the girl is just dumb.
Then theres the instalove ohmygodddd. He walks in the room and I know I'm in love with him. Literally they're in love within two seconds and she acts as if its the biggest deal in the world whe ...more
First the heroine was in a near fatal car crash, saved only by a mysterious gorgeous stranger who quickly vanished. Then, said brooding stranger became her reluctant lab partner, who refused to speak to her. Then there were long conversations about how the young couple’s extraordinary chemistry might cause the 'hero' to lose control, resulting in her tragic death.

This book hold the record for scarying me out of my wits while reading it. I was reading it at my dorm alone and I can tell you that, that is very conducive for "hyper-brain" activity. The only time that I could relax was when my dormmates were there. It's not a ghost story. It's more like Pretty Little Liars but creepier.
For me it's new. It's not about vampires, fairies, or sorcerers. The only reason I gave it a 4-star is becau ...more
