Summary
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.

My Thoughts
 I found this book on the sale shelf at my local bookstore, I bought it because i liked the cover and it was only 3.99. I'm so glad i did! Best thing about this book is the dialogue, It's fast paced and witty. This book has a really great cast of characters, all with strong personalities that stand out on their own. The mystery aspect of the book was really cool, the story is from Camelia's POV but every few chapters there would be a diary entry from the stalkers's POV. It was super creepy to get inside the stalkers head. As always in the books i read of course there is a hottie to moon over, Ben Carter in this case. I feel really bad for Ben he has to endure a lot of crap about his past even I kept second guessing his actual intentions. This book was fun to read it kept me on my toes and i can't wait to get started on the sequel. Laurie Faria Stolarz has a new fangirl in me, i really enjoy her writing. This book gets 5 out of 5!
