Book: Linda Joy Singleton, Don't Die Dragonfly (The Seer, Book 1)
Those with an avid interest in paranormal/occult, will delight in The Seer, a new fiction series from Linda Joy Singleton (author of the Regeneration, My Sister the Ghost, Cheer Squad and Strange Encounters series). Here, Linda Joy Singleton combines universal teen problems (fitting in, friendship, dating, and family pressure) with the abnormality of psychic ability into a compelling premise for a paranormal mystery series.

In the first book, Don't Die Dragonfly, Sabine Rose relocates to her grandmother's home after being kicked out of her former school for involvement in a strange incident. She hides her psychic ability behind the guise of an average teen who works on the school newspaper. Her acting ability pays off when a popular (and nice) boy named Josh asks her to date. For a few moments, Sabine believes her life can follow a normal path. Then, she suffers a vision of a girl with a dragonfly tattoo who becomes surrounded by danger and death. Sabine tries to ignore it. But the ghosts and visions bring her back to the cold hard truth -- she's psychic, and not normal.

Nona, Sabine's psychic grandmother, and Opal, her bossy spirit guide, won't let her forget responsibility to her ability or to those who her visions concern. When her school suffers vandalism, Sabine can no longer ignore the signs. She teams up with a strange group of her peers to investigate the matter. Along with a school newspaper columnist called "Mystic Manny," a "gifted" goth named Thorn and a mysterious boy named Dominic, Sabine forms an excellent investigative team, one I hope to follow for many books to come. I look forward to Last Dance, the next book in the series.
