Silver is for Secrets
by Laurie Faria Stolarz

I'll make you pay ...

After graduation, spending the summer at the beach seems like the perfect vacation. All Stacey wants to do is relax, hang out with Jacob (her new boyfriend), and enjoy the ocean with her friends. But this proves to be impossible when her nightmares return, this time accompanied by annoying nosebleeds and a dreadful feeling that danger is lurking.
Stacey senses that Clara, a fifteen-year-old staying down the beach from them, is in deadly trouble. Cute, flirtatious, and rumored to be a boyfriend-stealer, Clara is not exactly popular with the girls. And Stacey is finding it difficult to help Clara when she's obviously hiding something. What is her mysterious secret? Why is she telling lies about Jacob and Chad? Can Stacey solve the mystery before someone gets hurt?

The third installment of Blue is for Nightmares series – Silver is for Secrets is a book of mystery, thrill and love. The book was very emotional, fabulous, chilling, funny and heartbreaking at the same time. It was unexpected and exciting.

Writing style was much more mature. The author - Laurie Faria Stolarz – is the living example that good writing takes practice. This book is significantly different from the first two. There was almost nothing that was shallow, flat or trivial. Everything had multi layers or meanings, though those layers sometimes were too obvious.

In the third book I actually liked Stacy. I could actually feel for her and see how she is getting wrapped up in all the problems and issues that are happening around her. I could see her running after something, but be always one step behind. Drea didn’t annoy me as much as in the previous books. Amber, P.J. and their relationship kept amusing me – they are definitely my favorite characters from those series.

Epilogue was something really amazing – the writing style was like a beat of the blood in your veins. It was like a slide show in the dark room – still picture that captures only the essence and then light goes down, after a complete dark the flash of light and another picture that has nothing irrelevant on it, only the core – unforgettable.
