Review by Gigi Hoffman<BR/><BR/>Bad Connection, the first book in Melody Carlson¿s Samantha McGregor series, is an intriguing read. It¿s different than most books out there but one of the best I¿ve read.<BR/><BR/>Samantha McGregor is a regular teenage girl, with a pretty extraordinary spiritual gift. She has the ability to receive dreams and visions from God. <BR/><BR/>Everything starts off when Samantha has a dream about her friend, Kayla, who has been absent from school for several days. When Kayla officially becomes missing, it¿s discovered that she ran off to be with her internet boyfriend. But as Samantha has more visions and dreams of Kayla, she becomes frightened for Kayla¿s life. Samantha doesn¿t know where to turn¿her mom is uncomfortable with the topic, her older brother is out doing who knows what, and her best friend, although she knows about Samantha¿s gift, can only do so much. Samantha¿s dad, the person who really believed in and supported her gift, was a police officer who died on the line of duty several years earlier. With nowhere else to turn, Samantha goes to Ebony, a police detective, and her father¿s former work partner. Ebony is a strong Christian and believes Samantha¿s visions. And when Samantha¿s visions about another girl come up true, Ebony enlists Samantha to help find Kayla before it¿s too late.<BR/><BR/>The novel is part suspense, part regular teen stuff, but one-hundred percent fantastic. Carlson takes a touchy topic and spins it in a realistic, God-honoring way. A great novel for all.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
