Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

This is a low 3 star rating. The story was interesting overall, but it was lacking somehow. I think this was meant for a somewhat younger YA audience. There's very little detail or character development and I think that's what makes it hard to love the story.

I did enjoy it though, and I found it to be a very quick read. I wish the author would have gone a little deeper because I think it could have been a really engaging story. Perhaps this is just not one of those YA books meant to be enjoyed by an older crowd.

I think another issue that bothered me was the similarities to a certain 4 installment YA Vampire series. Now, I have to admit that I am the first person to get angry when every book under the sun is compared to Twilight, but I have to say with this one, some of the commonalities were difficult to overlook.

All in all, this book was just good. I will continue with the series to see what happens, but I'm not in a rush and will likely wait for the paperback to come out.
