This page turning who done it is packed with mystery, drama, and steam. Nia is a high school beauty who discovers she’s being stalked by someone in a secret underground society. Everyone is suspect. The pressure is mounting and problems are stacking up. Who is behind all of this? Which one of her friends is connected with this secret society? And why?

Secret underground societies? Count me in. Cameo is an interesting novel that provides a few different elements: suspense, romance, and typical teenage problems. The book reminded me of Gossip Girl: Nia, our main character, is a mix of Selena and Blair from Gossip Girl, which makes for an interesting personality. She’s the school’s beauty queen and seemingly has it all: the popularity, the beauty, the reputation. But she also has her own struggles, like when someone from an underground society starts stalking her. She doesn’t know who to trust anymore, and who is out to hurt her.

The writing was okay, and the pacing was fast, as is required from a thriller. The stalker didn’t come across as scary up to the point of terrifying the reader, but it was certainly suspenseful enough to keep me on the edge of my seat. Nia’s trouubles, from boy troubles to issues with her girlfriends to wondering what she’d wear the next day, make her sound like a real teenager – she definitely behaves and acts like one.

Nia’s voice is down to earth and has some sarcastic jokes thrown in here and there, which I enjoyed. She’s the kind of person who I might not have gotten along with at first, but by the end of the book I was fully cheering for her. She goes through a lot of character development, even in this somewhat short book (at just above 200 pages) and is another person by the end of it.

An intriguing book, recommended to anyone who likes young adult romance and suspense.
