About the Author

Originally a Jersey girl, sunny Texas is where I now call home, in a town way up north in the panhandle called Wellington. For fun I like to read YA, horror, and existentialist fiction, as well as watch cartoons, movies, and sometimes even cartoon movies. I also love reading excellent indie fiction! Hop over to my website - katstiles.com - for a chance to win some of my favorite indie reads. :)

Emily, or Em, is a High school student. The night before the first day of school she's being hit by a car. While Em is lying on the asphalt, not able to move, the boys who ran her over leave her there. This traumatic event causes her special ability to activate. She wakes up the next morning without scratch on her. Due to pressuring of her best friend, Roz, and Roz's dad Em visits the new school nurse. Em is physically fine, but she feels different. She finds out that she's a healer. She cannot only heal herself but others as well. She can also feel the emotions of people. She can heal both physical wounds and mental problems.

Roz is Em's best friend. She is drop dead gorgeous with her smooth skin, beautiful hair and perfect figure. Roz is also one of the nicest people Em has ever known. She is friendly and always has a kind word for others. Roz isn't allowed to date yet, so she has to let plenty of boys down. She is being asked out every day on the school bus. Roz has been having dreams that are coming true. The dreams are becoming more scary and they're showing Roz how people are being murdered. Suddenly Em and Roz are facing a race against the clock to prevent these killings from happening.

Tommy and his family recently moved and he now is the new kid at school. He is a cute teenage boy who hates injustice. He has no tolerance at all for the bullies that walk the High school halls. Tommy is quick with his comments and this makes it very easy for him to overrule the nasty remarks that are being made. His senses are enhanced, which means he can hear and see from a far distance and he also has an incredibly developed sense of smell. He can recognize people by scent alone. His ability is handy to have since it makes eavesdropping on a possible killer quite a bit easier.

Readers’ Comments
‘I loved the cover so much – and the blurb too. They made me want to read it. I’m glad I did.’ Girl, aged 14
‘This book reminded me of X-men in a good way. There was an interesting romantic side to it too. Lots happening all the way to the end and I liked the mystery.’ Boy, aged 15
‘This book is perfect for teenagers. Super powers and cool boys and a strong plot. The writing style is not difficult to follow. It will probably never be on the English lit reading list but that’s probably why I liked it so much.’ Girl, aged 14
‘Generally pretty good. A few of the plot twists were predictable and I hardly got to know many of the characters, but I think teenagers will like it. Girls more than boys. This could be the start of a popular set of books.’ Boy, aged 15

‘A fun, teen novel packed full of paranormal powers and a sprinkling of romance. A finalist and highly recommended.’ The Wishing Shelf Book Awards

Connected by Kat Stiles is intriguing from the very beginning. It starts with Emily getting hit by a car and being left on the side of the road. She is concerned when she realizes she can’t feel anything. As karma would have it, when the driver touches Emily she transfer her lack of feeling to him, and she feels a hot sensation come over her before she heals completely. Neither understands what exactly happened until months later.
Emily, her best friend Roz, and new boyfriend Tommy find that through different trauma in their life, they have unusually abilities. This makes sophomore year in high school more eventful than expected. They face bullies, family issues, and a mind reading doctor together to try to save lives.
I like how the author is mindful of the many emotions teenagers face, along with the fact that family can complicate good intentions. The book ended with many unanswered questions that hints there will be a sequel.

Kudos to Kat Stiles for bringing multiculturalism to literature. She truly understands what the concept means. Check out this description of Roz, a major character in the story. “She didn’t even have to try to be beautiful. Her skin was a rich honey brown, a shade or two lighter than Dad’s mahogany complexion. She inherited her hair from her mother—bouncy, silky curls extended past her shoulders, jet black in color, but with a midnight blue sheen when the sun hit it right.” Roz is not only beautiful, but well-spoken, intelligent, and free from stereotypes. I love it.

Oh, back to the novel, haha! “Connected” is a slick YA fantasy novel, a kind of literary X-Men with a healthy helping of beautiful teen love. Mmmm … I remember those days. “Connected” is well-written with well-developed characters. Stiles does a fantastic job with the first-person narrative here, giving the reader a strong, yet flawed heroine in Emily who knows what she wants and how to go about getting it. First narratives often fall prey, even in mega novels, to the wimpy, whiny wishy washy characterizations that make even the best stories tedious, not “Connected”.

Connected is an easy read, a must read, a page turner and highly recommended. It’s also completely unpredictable, something rare in contemporary literature. I’m definitely looking forward to book two. The descriptions are vivid, well-crafted, and set the scenes and moods well. Check it out. “She inherited my mother’s hair color, though she wore it even shorter—the style was a cross between a pixie and the result of sticking your finger in a wall socket that I liked to call, “The Angry Pixie.” Today, it looked flat and lifeless, boyish even.
