Review

.,." tingly and otherworldly enough to keep 'em hooked. The cool cover will help draw new readers and maintain those already into the series."

About the Author

With plots involving twins, cheerleaders, ghosts, psychics and clones, Linda Joy Singleton has published over 25 midgrade and YA books.

When she's not writing, she enjoys life in the country with a barnyard of animals including horses, cats, dogs and pigs. She especially loves to hear from readers and speaking at schools and libraries. She collects vintage series books like Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden and Judy Bolton.

When Linda is asked why she'd rather write for kids than adults, she says, "I love seeing the world through the heart of a child, where magic is real and every day begins a new adventure. I hope to inspire them to reach for their dreams. Writing for kids is a gift, a responsibility, and an honor."


More About the Author

From Linda Joy Singleton:

When I was 9, I wrote a short story about a cat named Taben and stapled it into a "book" with pictures, too. A year later I rewrote the book, writing it neater, adding chapter titles, and putting games in the back. I didn't know it then but I was "revising" my work, an early step to learning how to become a writer.

When I was 14, I challenged myself to type a chapter a day over my 2 week Christmas vacation, and I finished a book (200 pages) in two weeks. This was an important achievement to me because I proved to myself that I could finish a book. Up until then I had many starts but only one "finish."

So you'd think I was poised to become a young published author? Maybe...but life jumped ahead of my dreams. I started working at age 17 plus had a short marriage. I didn't dust off my writing dreams until I was 27 and a mother of toddlers. I started off small, writing in the evening when my husband was home to help with the kids. By the time they were in school, I had a schedule of writing in the mornings. I sold my first book when I was 30, a chapter book called ALMOST TWINS. Someday (when I'm quite famous) this will be my more rare book since only a few thousand were ever printed and it was only sold in school book fairs. My first book never made it to bookstores.

My 36th book, THE SEER #6. MAGICIAN'S MUSE, came out in 2010. And in 2012, a spinoff from THE SEER starring Thorn, BURIED, comes out in March. Also, I'm working on a big world-creating book now that will be my biggest achievement yet...stay tuned for more dreams coming true.

Format: Paperback
Sabine Rose's psychic gift got her kicked out of her last school and sent to live with her grandmother, Nona, who also has the "family gift". So Sabine hides her abilities in her new school, pretending to be normal. She is on the school newspaper staff and helps Manny with his Mystic Manny column. Her best friend is a cheerleader and Sabine often helps the entire squad with their practices and banners. She has a fabulous new boyfriend, Josh, that she met while saving his life (and he will never find out how she knew he was in danger if she has anything to say about it.) It sounds as though Sabine has everything a normal teenager could ever wish for.

However, Sabine still sees ghosts, spirit guides, and visions. Josh's best friend is jealous of her. Dominic is Nona's newest house guest with his own special talent. Someone vandalized the school and some things have been stolen as well.

Manny has always wished he had some sort of psychic talent. Even though he does not, he is still very good natured and keeps an open mind. He knows Sabine is more than normal and confronts her with it. Once she opens up to him, Manny introduces her to Thorn. Thorn likes the Goth look. It keeps people from getting too close to her. Thorn has her own special "gift". Manny, Thorn, Dominic, and Sabine, team up to investigate the vandalism and theft. But someone knows Sabine is out to locate the vandalizer and begins to frame her for it all. In addition, Sabine keeps having visions of a teen girl with a dragonfly tattoo on her wrist being surrounding by danger and death. Somehow Sabine must prove her innocense and warn the mystery girl with the tattoo without revealing her psychic gift to everyone.

***** W-O-W-! You will not want to put this awesome book down!

Format: Paperback
Sabine Rose is trying to fit in with the students in her new school. She lives with her grandmother. Her psychic abilities forced her out of her last school, so the last thing she wants is for the visions to begin again. This time she's in with the crowd - her best friend is a cheerleader and she hangs out with the team. She's on the journalism team with Manny, who writes a column for the high school newspaper. Manny introduces Sabine to Thorn, who is also gifted in her own way. When Sabine is framed for the thefts, Sabine and Thorn team up with others to discover who is vandalising the school and stealing from the classrooms. In the midst of all of this, Sabine keeps having visions of a dragonfly tattoo - and the person with it is in danger. How can she prove her own innocence and prevent disaster while preserving her sanity and secrets? A lively YA novel with the paranormal elements, this novel touches on many of the teen issues and how these characters come to term with their lives. I look forward to the next in this Seer series, Last Dance.

Format: Paperback
Don't get me wrong, I love the plot, the whole idea for a book about a teenager who has psychic powers and an ability to see ghost and spirits and predict or visualize future events, is a great idea. The Title(s) are amazing, and the Book covers, in my opinion, are the best of all her series'. The biggest problem i had with this book, is there were soooo many typo's in it, i mean i know it's not a college level book but does it have to have so many typos in it.. and it was edited, so why is the book that sloppy? another thing that bothered me was how underdeveloped the characters were, i mean even Sabine was foreign to me, and it was her story! when you write in the first person, the only way someone can connect with the character is by telling us about how she feels, what shes thinking about, stuff like that.. you did some of that but you didn't do it enough.. also you didn't describe the characters very well. Like, I'm still trying to figure out how Sabine, Manny, Nona, Penny-love, Dominic, Josh, Evan, Danielle.. Pretty Much everyone looks like! looks are a big part of how a reader connects with the characters! Also, there were a lot of "scenes" in the book but they weren't very descriptive, I'd rather have a few scenes that explain the emotions and movements and thoughts of the characters, then a bunch of scenes with tons of chit chat in them but no substance. One last thing that got to me was how the history of Sabine's family wasn't elaborated on, there was a little talk about it being long but it would've been nice to hear about at least one family member and what happened to them.. like a story from Nona about a long lost relative. All and all i did like the book, and will pick up the next one, in the hopes that the series will improve a bit.

Format: Paperback
How does a girl with psychic visions blend in with her surroundings and find a new normal? Easy! Survive a mysterious move, switch schools, create surface friendships, and spend most of the time running from the one thing that makes you who you are...a girl with a paranormal gift and a cranky spirit guide to boot!

Sabine Rose may seem normal by anyone's definition, but she sees visions that could have deadly consequences and knows she lacks the power to change them. Or does she? When Sabine receives a psychic warning about a girl with a dragonfly tattoo, her first inclination is to protect her deepest secret, but as the visions become more intense and the threat more imminent, she knows she must uncover the girl's identity and warn her of the danger lurking in the shadows.

Singleton, author of the Regeneration and Strange Encounters series, is a veteran series writer for the mid-grade and young adult audience. Don't Die, Dragonfly! explores the other-realm possibilities of an otherwise average teen, with a taste of intrigue and ever-present danger wrapped in outrageous, frightening predictions. The heroine, strong and feisty on many fronts, fears what makes her most vulnerable, not unlike the challenge of most teens.

One of the most interesting characters in Sabine's life is Opal, her bossy spirit guide, who with a little imagination takes on a Paula Danzinger (author of Amber Brown series/Scholastic) persona, complete with shimmering sequins, golden threads, and swirls of dancing lavender scarves. Opal is unique in that she offers advice in not-so-gentle nudges, but she never steers the main character on a path not of her own making, even though she's often outwardly impatient.
