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.
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 the rumors, even when her friends try to convince her otherwise. 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.
From the best-selling author of Blue is for Nightmares comes a story of paranormal romance that's sure to be a thrilling and chilling teen favorite.
I was looking for a new book to read in my local library ebooks selection when I came across this book. I am familiar with the authors previous series Blue is for Nightmares I had read years back. So I decided to take a chance on this book. The good side of reading this book was that it was short, the sucky side was that it was slow at some ends and rushed in others. Another thing I've noticed and it looks like many other readers have noticed is that it seems a bit like Twilight for a good chunk of the book dangerous new guy, saved by a moving vehicle with stalkerish wierd tendencies. What I did love about this book was the mystery and drama throughout the book. I loved that this book kept me guessing. Overall I did really enjoy this book. I would rate is 3 1/2 to 4 stars. If you like short paranormal mystery books then this is for you. Or if you like the book twilight and are looking for something close to that book then this book is for you.
