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!

It's very much of a teen novel with a relatively interesting storyline and reasonably interesting characters. There's a lot of build up but very little actually happening in this book. Maybe the later ones in the series have more guts.

I was asked to read this book and found it an enjoyable read.

Emily struggles with her 'difference' - is it a gift or a curse? Then she makes a startling discovery about her best friend and a boy she likes...there are plenty of other surprises, too.

This story is certainly for a teen /YA reader with themes such as fitting in at school, young love and the difficulties of growing up. It also had the additional paranormal interest, which added dimension, if not altogether believable.

Some characters were more realistic than others, but there was good dialogue for the most part. Many of the scenes were well written and the mystery and suspense built nicely.

Overall, a good and easy read, which flowed well within the first person narrative.

This book was unexpectedly good. It has a good mix of suspense, mystery, thrill and romance all mixed in with the urban fantasy theme. It is suitable for teens and adults alike so if you or your kid is enjoy reading paranormal themed books, Connected is a great recommendation. I am quite curious to know what happens next.

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.

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.

I don’t read a lot of YA—or paranormal, but this book came up in an online reading group that I belong to and the cover caught my eye—I love the cover! Then I read the book summary and was intrigued. I don’t read a lot of paranormal either, but the powers described to these three teenagers caught my attention because I have a fascination with healing powers. As well, I have personally known a couple of people who claim to have dreams that come true or just have a “knowing” about people. One time I commented that it must be cool to have that ability, and the man said he wished he didn’t have it, because it was very difficult knowing something was going to happen (usually a death) and not being able to do anything about it.

So, I was attracted to this book and once I started reading, I got lost in the story, forgetting that it was YA or considered paranormal.

The opening paragraph grabbed my attention immediately; “ Somehow I thought I would know when my life was in mortal danger. I’m not talking spidey sense or anything, just some kind of clue something bad is about to happen. I guess I got the idea from the movies. Real life, I found, is very different…..” When I read that I was hooked.

The book is YA, and author totally got the teenage thing—and since I have been around teenagers throughout the years, I appreciated the teenage insecurities, the alienation that Em felt at school, the very spiteful nasty girl named Angel, that bullied Em. I appreciated Tommy, the new boy at school who liked her, (rather than Roz) and was there for her, protective but encouraging her to stand up for herself. And I could imagine what it was like to have a best friend that the guys just fell all over, while they ignored Em even though the two girls were together.
