CAMELIA HAMMOND thought her powers of psychometry gave her only the ability to sense the future through touch. But now she has started to hear voices. Cruel voices. Berating her, telling her how ugly she is, that she’d be better off dead. Camelia is terrified for her mental stability, especially since her deranged aunt has just moved into the house. As if all of that weren’t torturing enough, Camelia’s ex-boyfriend, Ben, who has similar psychometric abilities, has started seeing someone else. Even her closest friends, Kimmie and Wes, are not sure how to handle her erratic behavior.
With the line between reality and dream consistently blurred, Camelia turns to pottery to get a grip on her emotions. She begins sculpting a figure skater, only to receive frightening premonitions that someone’s in danger. But who is the intended victim? And how can Camelia possibly help that person when she is on the brink of losing her own sanity?

First of all, I love just about everything Mrs. Stolarz writes. I found this book to be a little haunting, the descriptions so vivid you almost feel as though you are tied up and are directly in the action. I think this is a great concept and loved most of the book... except for the last page and a half. I loved the twist and although it seems as though Camelia always ends up in the center of the violence in the end, the twist saved this ending from being anything close to those of the other books. The development of Camelia directly facing the possibility of becoming like Aunt Alexia was an appropriate dimension for the book and added just another great spark. It kills me that I now have to wait another year for the final book!
*Spoilers* I will admit that I am extremely attached to Ben and found Adam to be a mild frustration in the other novels; this was just too much for me. I beg, please let Camelia end up with Ben in the end! It would just be wrong for the entire...
I am a big fan of the Touch series by Laurie Faria Stolarz. It's got everything - mysterious boys, creepy creepiness that has me cowering under the blanket at night, paranormalish aspects that I am desperately trying to figure out...
And so I was all like YEAH when I clutched Deadly Little Voices by Laurie Faria Stolarz in my hands for the first time. And I devoured it. Cause Deadly Little Voices rocks.
Before I get started on the story of Deadly Little Voices, let me talk a little about the characters. I was very much pleased with Camelia and (some of) her choices in Deadly Little Voices. She is finally getting it together, I think. More so than in previous books where I wanted to just shake her and point at the obviousness. Ben, as usual, drove me crazy, and I still can't decide if he's driving me in a good way or not.
Okay, and the whole story of Deadly Little Voices. LOVEEEDDD IT. I thought the first two stories were kind of a similar and almost a...
***Review copy provided by author for review*** At the end of Deadly Little Games, Camelia and Ben decide to break things off. Again, I'm not really sure how I feel about this since I never thought their relationship was that serious. Camelia is able to convince her parents that Aunt Alexia doesn't belong in a mental hospital and they take her home to live with them. As much as Camelia hoped that her aunt could help her, Aunt Alexia is very shut-off, and except for some few creepy instances she shares with Camelia about cryptic messages and scary dolls, she hardly talks or comes out of her room and her room is covered in her art.
For a while now, along with sculpting clues from the future, Camelia has also been hearing voices in her head and having visions. The voices get meaner and nastier telling Camelia that nobody likes her and that she is worthless. She tries to stay away from her art but it only makes things worse. She is convinced that one of her...
