BAD CONNECTION

Author(s): 
God gave 15-year-old Samantha McGregor the gift of prophetic dreams and visions. Her mom fears her gift and sends her to a counselor, but Samantha knows God wouldn't give her this ability without a reason.

Former friend Kayla has been missing for three days. When Samantha has disjointed dreams and visions about Kayla, she has trouble making sense of them. Why can't God give her a clearer message?

This new series will appeal to a wide variety of readers. Samantha's prophetic dreams keep the story interesting and moving at a rapid pace, and her wholehearted trust in God centers the story. The plot may be simplistic for adults, but it's entertaining and could help promote dialogue between adults and teens. (Aug., 258 pp., $11.99)
