Book Review: Deadly Little Secret - Laurie Faria Stolarz


Some secrets shouldn’t be kept…
Until three months ago, sixteen-year-old Camelia’s life gave been fairly ordinary. Then a mysterious boy named Ben started junior year at her school and changed everything.
Rumoured to be somehow responsible for his ex-girlfriend’s accidental death, Ben is immediately ostracized by everyone on campus. Except for Camelia. Despite the rumours, she’s inexplicably drawn to him… and to his touch. But soon, Camelia is receiving eerie phone calls and strange packages with threatening notes. Ben insists she’s in danger, and that he wants to help – but can he be trusted? She knows he’s hiding something… but he’s not the only one with a secret.


This book is mysterious and rather creepy. Throughout the book, Laurie Faria Stolarz has thrown in red herring after red herring, keeping you guessing, re-guessing, and then re-guessing again. I found myself thinking, 'It must be him. He's the stalker. Actually, no wait, perhaps not... (reads a few more pages.) Well, it isn't him. Or is it?' Also, every once in a while, you get a small insight into the mind of the stalker, via a hand written journal entry, though it never actually reveals who the stalker actually is, and when I eventually did find out at the end of the book, I was very surprised, having not expected the stalker to be who I thought the stalker was.

If you are easily creeped out by things, then I would say that you shouldn't read this book if you are either: home alone, or at night. Once I started this book, I couldn't stop, and had to read the whole thing in one sitting. I found myself a little bit scared at times, but I kept going, and I'm glad I did. As soon as I can, I'll be ordering the next one, DEADLY LITTLE LIES, to see if it's just as good.

I give it 4 Feet!
