PLAYING WITH FIRE
The third installment of this series is filled with action, adventure and profound spiritual truth. Sam's visions and dreams are unusual, and Carlson writes about them with grace and ease. The first-person account feels intimate, and readers will warm to Sam's intense
personality. The book contains themes relevant to adults and teens.
Sam becomes an undercover informant for the police meth task force and looks for connections between drugs and people she knows from school. Can she use her gifts and her relationship with the police to help her brother -- or is it too late? (MULTNOMAH, Aug., 256 pp., $12.99)
