and her new novel
about the book:
Twelve-year-old Cydni Hazard wants two things in life: to be able to use her empathic abilities to connect with her deceased mother, and to become a professional paranormal detective. In order to get what she wants, she feels she must learn as much as possible from her spiritually gifted Aunt Ettie, all the while keeping her supernatural talents hidden from her skeptical father.
But no matter where Cydni goes, the spirit world hunts her down, and brings stray cats with mystical messages that she must decipher to keep her life on a somewhat normal keel.
That’s not easy when her empathic nature leads her into unfamiliar territory and behavior. She never knows where she’ll be going, what she’ll be doing and who will be influencing her, guiding her to unravel the latest paranormal mystery.
So when she spends a week at Aunt Ettie's new house and learns the small town of Blue Star claims to have a haunted pond, Cydni is spiritually led to discover the truth
A paranormal detective story. Written for middle grade students.
This is a wonderful story. The main character is Cyndi Hazard. She is only 12 years old. She has an empathic gift. (or curse). An empath is someone who can feel the emotions of others. As with most paranormal beings, Cyndi does have an animal guide, her's is a cat. Cats help her along the way while utilizing her 'gift'.
Cyndi is a perfect main character. Outside of her empathic abilities, she is a normal 12 year old kid. She is likable and fun. She has the benefit of spending the summer months with an aunt who have a similar gift.
This is a fabulous book for young readers. There is, of course, a male character to appeal to male readers. Nick is a friend who shares Cyndi's love of adventure and mysteries.
I give this book 5 stars and recommend it for all middle grade students looking for a fun and interesting summer read.
