Deadly Little Games by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Guess what releases today???? Post on this later...It deserves its own special post!

Title: Deadly Little Games
Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz
Publisher: Hyperion Books
Publication Date: December 28, 2010
Received: From Library

Summary: Camelia and Ben have discovered a powerful bond: They both possess the power of psychometry, the ability to sense things through touch. For Ben, the gift is a frightening liability. When he senses a strong threat or betrayal, he risks losing control and hurting people. Camelia's gift is more mysterious. When she works with clay, her hands sculpt messages her mind doesn't yet comprehend.

Before either teen has a chance to fully grasp these abilities, an unresolved family tragedy resurfaces in Camelia's life, irrevocably changing everything she cares about...

Review:This was even creepier than the other two books in the series!   And those were both pretty creepy. But this one was creepy at a whole new level!

I felt like both Camelia and Ben had matured more and grown up during this book. And I couldn't help but admire Camelia, she wants to help people so bad and solve their problems. She was very independent of Ben and she relied on her friends more than her boyfriend. Yes! And Ben just plain annoyed me. That boy is so moody, he's almost a girl. And that annoyed me. Adam was a smudge better, but for now I have no favorite pick for Camelia.

Like I said earlier, this one was creepy. Really, really creepy. I was frozen stiff to my bed, afraid. No joke. And was it just me or was this one more murdery (is that even a word?). I felt like the nearness of death and murder were quite present which added for a creepy, chilling touch.

Again this book was predictable. Just chose the person least likely and you have your culprit. But I still really like this series. I can't wait for Deadly Little Voices!
