In this story, you find out more about Anthony's family and his releationship with Rae, the main character, devolps. Rae, by the way, has this amazing gift of being able to read people's thoughts through their fingerprints. BR>You don't have to have read the previous books but i recommend you do because they are just so great. Melinda Metz is a super writer and I just couldn't stop reading her books. I read two in one day!
I give Secrets 11 out of 10 as it is soooooooo great! :-) :-) :-)

Feeling abandoned by Anthony, Rae enlists the help of Yana to help solve the mystery of her mothers' death and to collect data on the New Age group her mother was a part of. Anthony halfheartedly pursues Jackie, since he's now convinced himself that Rae and Marcus are bound to get back together, and more misunderstanding bloom when Rae thinks there's a real romance afoot. But as with previous books in this series, things aren't always what they seem and as Anthony quickly figures out, there's more going on with Jackie than he first thinks. Instead of simply running hot and cold, Jackie has some real issues that culminate in an attempted suicide that nobody saw coming. Meanwhile, the closer Yana and Rae get to the truth, the stranger the truth becomes and the more danger they seem to attract.
When Rae gets too close to the answers she's seeking, a showdown with the mystery stalker takes place, leaving the reader with an amazing, suspenseful ending, one that thrusts Rae and Anthony back together in a spectacular way. It truly opens the door, and I mean wide open, for a real romance to begin, yay! This book, this whole series, is so sharply written and so thrilling that as soon as I finished one book, I'm scrambling for the next. I literally read books one through three in one sitting, they're simply that great. By far, the best series I have ever read. Melinda Metz weaves together a compelling story, blending it with equal parts mystery, suspense, friendship and romance. I'm truly excited to read book five!
Rae is so happy to have Anthony at Sanderson with her - now she will finally have a friend at school! However, things don't turn out the way that Rae planned. She is shocked to discover Anthony hanging out with her old group of friends - even Marcus, her ex-boyfriend who is trying to get her back! Rae doesn't know what to do and she finds herself leaning on Yana, her only girlfriend, more and more as more strange stuff happens. First she gets some fungus on her tongue and is worried that she is developing the same symptoms her mother did before she died. Then there is the creepy teacher, Mr. Jesperson, who always seems to be watching her. And Rae still doesn't know anything more about her mother and the New Agey group that she was involved in before she was committed. Rae has a feeling that she is finally going to find some answers when she finds out her mother's group used to meet at Wilton Community Center. However, when she goes to the center and meets Aiden Matthews, she ends up having more questions than she did before. Rae desperately wants to go over everything with Anthony - but all he ever talks about is football and Jackie, one of her ex-friends from before. How can she deal with all of these secrets on her own?
This is the fourth book in the Fingerprints series and if you have read the first three before this, than this one just keeps drawing you in deeper. Every time Rae finds out something about her mother there are a ton of other questions that pop up and the reader is really kept guessing as to what is going to happen. And its not like Rae can just worry about her mom, she has to worry about not having any friends at school, whether she should get back with Marcus or not, what the heck she is supposed to do about Anthony, typical, normal life stuff. Just be advised that the book has a total cliffhanger ending AGAIN - make sure to have book #5 ready to go!
