As new mysteries unfold and old ones are solved, this spine-tingling series continues. With an eye-catching new look, Wendy Corsi Staubs fans will not be disappointed.

Editorial Reviews

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

I loved this series, but I was disappointed in the end. I figured it would have had a final outcome, but it left me wanting another book to read. Is there another book after Discover?

This series is a great one for anyone of any age. I read the whold series in 1 week and was wishing, when I finished, that there was more to it. Even though the books take you from one to another in a fluid motion, you keep on hoping that there will be more at the end. I heartly reccommend this authour for anyone who enjoys suspense and who likes to try to figure out the ending before the end of the book. Believe me, you will never be able to do it. Wendy Corsi Staub keeps you guessing right up to the end.
