The Stalker Chronicles

Sophomore Cammie Bliss has long been labeled a stalker by her peers, but when a cute new boy named Toby arrives at her small town high school, Cammie has a chance to be "normal." Trouble is, she can't really help herself and she's up to her old tricks of "intense observation and following" pretty quick. Making things worse, her younger brother is dating one of the most popular girls in the school, her parents have separated, and her dad has begun to watch their house most nights. Cammie has simply got to figure out why she behaves the way she does, and end it once and for all.








The Stalker Chronicles was a cute, contemporary novel that instantly propelled me into my teenage memories. I think we can all admit, we've acted a bit stalker-ish from time to time. At one point in our lives, we've called a boy one too many times. Or maybe you've met a cute guy and then immediately started envisioning a future with him. Or maybe you meet a cutie, and before you know it you find yourself daydreaming about him and doodling his name all of your notebook and thinking of ways to "accidently" bump into him. Whatever the case may be, at some point in our lives. we've all done it!

Cammie Bliss was a totally endearing character. She means well, she really does! But, she just sort of has this habit of going about things in the worst way possible! She knows it, but it's like there's this inner demon within her and she can't stop. Reading about Cammie's boy trouble and social akwardness had me smiling and remembering my teenage years. I think we have all been in her shoes before. While most of us grew out of it, Cammie just can't seem to break the pattern. When Toby, movies to town, Cammie finds herself instantly attracted to him and vows to start over, and break her Stalker reputation.

She's doing pretty well, but then everything starts to fall apart. Her younger brother is dating the most popular girl at school, who just so happens to hate Cam. Her parents are getting a divorce and her father has moved out. Her mother has started to date other men, and her father has started watching their house at night. Maybe the stalker gene runs in the Bliss family? Will Cammie be able to shake her bad reputation and change before she messes up her chances with Toby permanantly?

This was such a cute read from beginning to end. I really enjoyed reading about Cammie and all of her wild antics. At times I laughed out loud, especially when she got caught red handed going through Toby's trash so in an effort to  learn more about him. All in all it was a really enjoyable and quick read!
