Well a friend of mine (Melanie) kept tweeting and fb posting about this book. So I broke down and got it and It certainly did NOT disappoint.
This is Adam Kunz's first solo novel. He co-writes other stories with his mother as the writing team C. A. Kunz. Adam's writing reminds me of my younger days when I devoured authors like Christopher Pike and R. L. Stine. One Tiny Secret kept me guessing. Didn't know for sure "who-dunnit" til the end. Although it has a "Mature" disclaimer, I didn't think it was too bad. When I first saw this I thought it was going to be more of an erotic thriller but its really just a story of high school seniors and college students. This story would probably be best for the older range of teens due to some sexual content.
