Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Stolarz, Laurie Faria Deadly Little Lies, 282 p. Disney, 2009. $16.99. Sexual Content: PG-13 (body parts), Language: PG (12-ish swears, no "f"). After four months, Ben is back in town and Camelia is just as conflicted about him as ever. She knows his secret about being able to read people with a touch; she loves him, but she also knows that his whole hometown thinks that he killed his girlfriend. When creepy, dangerous things start happening again, Camelia doesn't know whether to rust Ben or turn from him - AGAIN. You may have noticed that the word AGAIN has a lot of exasperation behind it. I had to read through a second book about Camelia dithering over Ben (do I love him, is he going to kill me, is he going to save me, do I love this new stranger in town) and I got really tired of it really fast. Imagine my delight when I see that there is going to be one more book in the series. This is not Mss. Stolarz' best work. Too bad, after how much I liked her color series. NO. Cindy, Library-Teacher
