Kat Stiles is a super hero geek at heart. She grew up watching Spiderman, X-men and Superfriends cartoons, and she loved the idea of having super powers. The superhero movies that came out delighted her; even the bad ones were still so much fun. And she remembers wishing the series, “Heroes” would go on forever. With Connected, she tried to keep the abilities as organic as possible – something just a little beyond what a normal human can do. She’s met some pretty incredible people in her life, and her experiences greatly influenced the writing of Connected.
High school is hard enough, Em knows. Her freshman year introduced her to all the cliques, annoying teachers, and tough homework assignments. But discovering you have super powers and not knowing how to control them is a whole new level of complicated.
Thankfully, Em isn’t alone. Her best friend Roz starts having unusual dreams that come true, and Tommy, Em’s secret crush, can hear the softest whispers in class.
A romance blossoms with Tommy. But just as things are looking up, people start dropping like flies. A telepathic serial killer is on the loose and only Em and her friends have a hope of stopping him.
Or do they? If they don’t figure out the killer’s identity soon, one of them could be next.
Character blog – Em
Another summer gone. Wish I had some exciting news to report, an interesting vacation story, a whirlwind summer romance with a handsome stranger… hell, even a decent new horror movie would’ve been something. We were supposed to drive down to the beach last month, but my mom got called back in to work. Again.
As pathetic as it sounds, I spent most of my summer break vegging on the couch with my best friend Roz. If it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t have survived freshman year. She says this year will be better. Hard to imagine, but it can’t be worse than last year, right?
Sometimes I wish I could start over in a brand new town, somewhere they’ve never heard of me. Or my hands. And without Lauren would be nice, too. I see those shows on TV with big sisters that are so loving and supporting and I can’t help but laugh. Don’t know why I’m even blogging, I mean, no one’s going to read it. Except maybe Roz.
Oh that reminds me, will you please change your voicemail message? It’s downright painful to leave you a message lately.
