first thoughts:
I have already read and reviewed Deadly Little Lies (Touch #1). *find it HERE* I recieved that book from Netgalley. I liked that book, altough I did not entirely fall in love with it. Still, I was very intersted in reading the sequel. So that's what I did :)


the book: 
Since Ben abruptly left town, Camelia has been studying everything she can about psychometry, and wonders if Ben's abilities have somehow rubbed off on her.

my review:
This book was not what I expected it to be... Again, the twilight-effect. More about that later ;)
The characters did develop a little, but not as much as characters usually develop between the first book and the sequel. There was an amazing character added to the series, which I can't really talk about without spoiling the book, so I won't...
There were some great plot twists, that kept the book a little interesting, but most of the book was just about the same topic repeated time after time, which is one of the things that bothered me about the first part in the series, too.
Now I will talk about the twilight-effect. In book 1 I said: "They become Chem (biology ) lab partners. The girl falls in love with the boy, even tough he is totally out of her league AND does only show how much he hates her. Then she figures out that there's somthing wrong with the boy but she just does not care and then she finds out that he kind-of-killed his ex and she still loves him" and now, in this book, the twilight-effect continued. This was just like New Moon. Ben *Edward* runs away from Camelia *Bella 2.0* and a new boy *Jacob* enters her life. The two boys don't like each other and stuff. Not that the girl attemps suicide in this book ;) Just that I keep on seeing the similarities, and how they keep on irritating me.
The writing style of the author and the pace of this book both were above average, and it was very easy to read this book. A quick and enjoyable read! It might not have worked out completely for me, but I'm sure that lots of other people will love this book. when I browsed through my friends who rated this book on goodreads, I saw mostly 4- and 5-star reviews :)

So yes, I get that others liked this book, but the twilight-effect kept on showing up and kept on annoying me throughout the book. Apart of that, the story wasn't even that bad c:

rating: 
2.5 stars
