Overview

Last fall, Camelia fell for Ben, the mysterious new boy at school with a very mysterious gift—pyschometry, the ability to sense the future through touch. But just as Camelia and Ben's romance began to heat up, he abruptly left town. Brokenhearted, Camelia has spent the last few months researching psychometry, and experiencing her own strange brushes with premonition.

Even once Ben returns, Camelia can't get close enough to share her secret with him. Despite the romantic tension between them, Ben remains aloof, avoiding contact. Then when a series of eerie notes echoes the threats of last semester—and Ben keeps his distance—Camelia makes the painful decision to move on. Her hot new co-worker, Adam, seems good for her in ways Ben wasn't.

But when Camelia and Adam start dating, a chilling sequence of events upturns secrets from Ben's past—and Adam's. Someone is lying, and it's up to Camelia to figure out who-before it's too late.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Waldrop
Deadly Little Lies is the second book in the "Touch" series about a high school girl named Camelia. Picking up a few months after Deadly Little Secret ended, the beginning of the book finds Camelia missing Ben, a mysterious boy with the power of psychometry, and beginning to realize her own power to see the future. When Ben returns, she thinks that he will be able to help her understand her new gift, but he refuses to get close to her again. Disappointed, Camelia tries to move on by dating Adam, who arrived in town around the same time that Ben returned. Unlike Ben, Adam wants to be with Camelia, but she cannot completely let go of Ben, and he does not seem to want to let go of her either, despite his insistence that they cannot be together. In addition to this turmoil, Camelia begins receiving disturbing messages and warnings that are frighteningly reminiscent of threats she received from her ex-boyfriend the previous year, but he is supposed to be in another state. Unsure of whom she can trust, Camelia begins to develop her power in hopes that she can save herself before the dire warnings come true. Reviewer: Jennifer Waldrop
VOYA - Tracy Piombo
Now that her stalker-turned-abductor is out of the picture, Camelia should be able to relax. But, she is constantly unsettled by a series of pranks and the new strange powers she seems to be developing that enable her to predict the future through her artwork. Then, her mysterious flame, Ben, reappears, but insists he just wants to be friends. So, Camelia reluctantly starts dating a new guy at work. Camelia and Ben are continually drawn back to one another, but new twists of events make Camelia wonder if Ben is more dangerous than he seems. Readers already invested in the Touch (Disney Hyperion) series may want to continue, and the events of the previous book are neatly recapped for new readers. Ben's aloofness seems more like a plot contrivance than a natural turn of events, however, and it is hard to understand why everyone (including her parents) thinks Camelia's previous abductor would be "too smart" to ignore the restraining order against him. Much of the book drags, and the repartee with Camelia's best friends is even more grating this time around. Periodic excerpts from Camelia's crazy aunt's diary are also more of a distraction than anything. Nonetheless, it is refreshing to see a heroine with outside interests beyond her love life. While some of the scenes are sultry, the one bedroom scene with Ben leaves almost everything to the imagination. Consider this for large collections where paranormal romances are popular.
