Connected by Kat Stiles

Blurb

High school is hard enough, Em knows. Her freshman year introduced her to all the cliques, annoying teachers, and tough homework assignments. But discovering you have super powers and not knowing how to control them is a whole new level of complicated.

Thankfully, Em isn’t alone. Her best friend Roz starts having unusual dreams that come true, and Tommy, Em’s secret crush, can hear the softest whispers in class.

A romance blossoms with Tommy. But just as things are looking up, people start dropping like flies. A telepathic serial killer is on the loose and only Em and her friends have a hope of stopping him.

Or do they? If they don’t figure out the killer’s identity soon, one of them could be next.


A Paranormal YA with mysteries to uncover. Our female protagonist is Emily, she lives with her mother and older sister (a.k.a the Ice Queen). Emily is a sophomore in high school and has a difficult time adjusting. Her one friend, Roz is her saving grace. Roz and her father are more constant and helpful in Emily’s life then her own family.

After a traumatic experiences Emily’s life begins to change even more. With the help of the new High School nurse and Roz, she is able to channel her new abilities for a positive outcome. There is also, a new boy at school, Tommy. He comes from the other side of the tracks and is treated as such in school, but Tommy and Emily are drawn to one another. They can each physically feel a differences when around one another.

Tommy is such a good guy. He is positive and protective. He is kind of Emily and Roz. He stands up for them and tries with all his might to be their protector. The author allowed for diversity in the book with her descriptions of Roz, Roz’s dad, and Tommy. We are able to have a more diverse group of high schoolers.

Picture

When I saw this picture I immediately thought of Roz. “her skin[..} a rich honey brown…bouncy, silky curls that extend past her shoulders, jet black in color, but with a midnight blue sheen when the sun hit it right. If I looked like you, I thought, I wouldn’t be nervous either.”

 

Picture

 

 

 

 

This is the before picture of Emma. I mean before she decided to start dolling herself up, and wearing more fitted clothes.

 

 

Side notes, I think Roz and Demetri (Tommy’s older brother, should have a fling). His silly and brute type of personality and her soft and reserved nature would balance out the other one.

Roz, Emily, and Tommy, find out they each have special abilities. Between the three of them, you can almost think of them as ‘the charmed ones.’

There were some reservations I had about the book. We were able to have a resolution with Scott and the Doctor, but what about Emily’s sister. It feels like she was a large part of the story and then she just disappeared. For someone that was such a large negative influence on our main characters, they really all the sudden stopped having situations with her.

I believe though in the next book, which I am assuming there will be, because we are left on a little cliff hanger (nothing to freak about over) that “The Ice Queen” will return with her vengeance.

I give it 3.5 hearts
