Synopsis: High school junior
Camelia thought her powers of psychometry only gave her the ability to
sense the future through touch. But now she’s started to hear voices.
Mean voices. Berating her, telling her how ugly she is, and that she’d
be better off dead. It’s a troubling development that has Camelia
terrified for her mental stability, especially since her deranged aunt
with a suicidal history just moved into the family house. More
torturing, ex-boyfriend Ben, who has similar psychometric abilities, has
been spending more time with their classmate Alejandra, even as her own
feelings for Adam grow stronger. Still, the bond between Camelia and
Ben is palpable.
With the line between right and wrong
fraying, Camelia turns to pottery to get a grasp on her emotions. She
begins sculpting a beautiful figure skater, only to receive frightening
premonitions that someone’s in danger. But who is the victim? And how
can Camelia help them when she is on the brink of losing her own sanity?
My Review: This
book is the fourth in the Touch series and it starts out with Camelia
hearing voices that call her worthless and tell her to die. She thinks
she might end up like her aunt, so she gets help (finally) from a
therapist who specializes in what's going on with her. As it turns out
Camelia is having premonitions about a girl in trouble and she wants to
I really liked this book even though I didn't like
the ending because I like Ben way better than Adam. I think that Camelia
should just forget about Adam because she obviously has a connection
with Ben that she can never have with Adam.
I loved the
letters that Jack and "Jill" wrote to the each other especially the last
letter "Jill" wrote about how she was saved. It made me cry because it
was so...sweet. The Ben part not the Jack & "Jill" parts.
book was really interesting especially when you didn't know whether
something was really happening or if it was a hallucination. I also
found out that I like Adam but only as Camelia's friend. I felt bad for Wes and Kimmie because of how hard their lives seem to be, at least Camelia tries to be a good friend.
really liked this book and could barely put it down once I was a few
pages into the story! The only reason it got four stars was because
there wasn't enough Ben for me, he was there but it was like he was in
the background or there only when needed and Adam was still ruining
things for Camelia and Ben.
