Deadly Little Games by Laurie Faria Stolarz (Review)

High school juniors Camelia and Ben have discovered a powerful bond: They both possess the power of psychometry, the ability to see the future through touch. For Ben, the gift is a frightening liability. When he senses a strong threat or betrayal, he risks losing control. Camelia's gift is more mysterious. When she works with clay, her hands sculpt messages her mind doesn't yet comprehend. Before either one has a chance to fully grasp their abilities, a new danger surfaces, but this time, Camelia is not the target. Adam, a familiar face from Ben's past, is drawn into a puzzle he can't solve...and his life is on the line. As the clues pile up, Camelia must decide whether to help him and risk losing Ben or do nothing and suffer the consequences. But in these games, who can be trusted?
Packed with the suspense and romance that made Deadly Little Secret and Deadly Little Lies breakout hits, Deadly Little Games is sure to be a bestseller.

I GIVE THIS BOOK:1 star1 star1 star1 star

In Deadly Little Games, Camelia for the third time gets herself into a sticky situation. It's hard to believe one teenage girl can get into so many life-threatening situations in one school year, but the story was nonetheless enjoyable.

I have to say that the hot & cold relationship between Camelia and Ben is getting really old - just make up your minds already! Another thing that is getting annoying is Camelia not telling her parents about what's going on in her life - she has really got to start trusting them.

The author again did a great job of leaving you in suspense about who was behind everything. There were so many people that I thought it could be, but I never could decide on one of them and was surprised when the person was revealed - which I loved!

Deadly Little Games was a fast and suspenseful read and a great third installment to the touch series. The way this book is written you could read it without reading the first two and you wouldn't feel lost at all - the author does a great job of including all the key details from the first two books. However, if you did read this one first the other two would most likely be spoiled for you, so you probably wouldn't want to do that.

I would recommend this book/series to older teens and adults because I don't feel that the content would be appropriate for younger teens.
