But when a mysterious boy named Ben 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 he's trouble, even when her friends try to convince her otherwise. Instead, 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 new series that's sure to be a thrilling and chilling teen favorite.
My Review: This book was in ways better then what I thought and in other ways different. I thought it would be really junvinelle but it wasn't! The author wrote it so it seems the main charaters are thinking more than clothes or how they look; which, let's face it, most teens think like that. But it was scray, and that was something I didn't expect! It also very true to life. Also, what Ben's "thing" is, is a REAL good twist! Plus, duh, who it it, is W-H-O-A. This a great book, and I totally thing that if you read this you need the playlist from Laurie's site, which I didn't have but I would have liked to have. AwEsOmE book; can't give it enough praise. But I will say: I cried at the end. PS - I wish Ben was real! Unfair!! :)-
