The Girlfriends' Cyber Circuit presents Laurie Stolarz!


Some secrets shouldn't be kept...

Up until three months ago, everything in sixteen-year-old Camelia's life had been fairly ordinary: decent grades; an okay relationship with her parents; and a pretty cool part-time job at the art studio downtown. But when Ben, the mysterious new guy, starts junior year at her high school, Camelia's life becomes anything but ordinary.

Rumored to be somehow responsible for his ex-girlfriend's accidental death, Ben is immediately ostracized by everyone on campus. Except for Camelia. She's reluctant to believe the rumors, even when her friends try to convince her otherwise. She's inexplicably drawn to Ben...and to his touch. But soon, Camelia is receiving eerie phone calls and strange packages with threatening notes. Ben insists she is in danger, and that he can help--but can he be trusted? She knows he's hiding something... but he's not the only one with a secret.

From the best-selling author of Blue is for Nightmares comes a story of paranormal romance that's sure to be a thrilling and chilling teen favorite.

Jenn: What would be the ideal spring break for some of your characters? The one they'd remember fondly for the rest of their lives?

Laurie: I think they’d go for something adventurous, like a backpacking trip across Europe. My main character, Camelia, is really into pottery and sculpture, so I think she’d be inspired by such a trip.

Jenn: Do your characters go on any road trips? What are they looking for?

Laurie: Not in this book, but in PROJECT 17, my characters go to spend a night in an abandoned mental institution that’s rumored to be haunted.

Jenn: Describe your worst and best spring breaks ever.

Laurie: Honestly, I worked during all my spring breaks. I was pretty broke in college and had to use the time to save up for tuition moula. I’d really love to go on Spring Break now. I’d love to be a participant on the show On the Road Again with Maria Batali and Gwyenth Paltrow.
