Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Even though Lily Dale is a thousand miles away from Florida, Calla struggles to meet friends and to settle in to her new home. Since her mother's murder, Calla has discovered that she is able to communicate with the Other Side. Calla is able to see ghosts everywhere she looks, and she begins to develop a sensitivity to the spirit world that is unique for someone of any age. But no matter how hard she tries, Calla cannot connect with her mother's spirit. Why is it so difficult to reach her mother? Why is Calla able to connect with people she has never met but not with someone she loved and lost? Was her mother really murdered, or was the fall down the stairs an accident? Calla wants to find the truth, even if it is painful and terrifying. As Calla and Jacy grow closer, Jacy sees visions of Calla in danger; an image of Calla struggling in the water comes to his mind often. There are many ominous signs from the Other Side. With her mother's killer still on the loose, Calla will never be safe. In this highly exciting addition to the "Lily Dale" series, Wendy Staub takes readers on a supernatural adventure that is haunting and enchanting at the same time. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
School Library Journal

Gr 8-10

This installment in the series continues the story of high school senior Calla Delaney. Her mother's death was thought to be an accident, but Calla's visions tell her otherwise, and she is determined to discover her mother's killer. Living in Lily Dale (a real spiritualist community in upstate New York) with her grandmother, the teen is beginning to feel more comfortable with her own gift for seeing spirits, but she misses her father (on sabbatical in California) and her old, "normal" life in Florida. Romance, friendship, and psychic powers mix as Calla tries to choose between two boys in her new town-one who is the most popular and one who tries to keep her safe. Both, of course, are extraordinarily handsome. While those who have read Awakening (2007) and Believing (2008, both Walker) will have a better immediate understanding of Calla's situation and surroundings, Connecting stands fairly well on its own. The characters are interesting, the search for Calla's mother's murderer is gripping, and the dollop of romance adds just the right spark. The book never pretends to be great literature, but it certainly fits the bill for some tingly escape reading. For those who are hooked, the ending promises that there will be more.-Sharon Grover, Hedberg Public Library, Janesville, WI
