About the Author
When not traveling, Nickolai Vasilieff can be found bent over his computer in a cabin, on the bank of the Necanicum River, in Northwest Oregon, USA. Nick is a Navy veteran, private pilot, businessman and writer, who has traveled to over forty countries, including a one-year, around the world trip, living out of a backpack. The San Juan Express stories are partly inspired by those trips, the children he met around the world, and summer vacations in the San Juan Islands with his two children. The stories he made up during those summer vacations eventually evolved into the Sammy and the San Juan Express series. “Young Adult novels are of particular interest to me, where the imagination of youth is combined with an insatiable appetite for knowledge and adventure, and where confidence is fragile yet boundless. Creating challenges through which characters grow in mind and spirit is a constant objective, along with spinning a good tale, of course.”

Secondly... This story is so well written that I am actually going to find out when the author is going to have another book out. I eagerly await the opportunity to hear more. It's my first experience with this author so for all I know, there already are other books out? If there are. I will find them. If not... I'll be there to purchase the next one on day one.
This story of Samantha, her life, the loss of her mother, and coming to accept and use her wonderful gift of empathy, is a total treasure. I love this girl! This book had some scary action packed moments, but it is a book I totally recommend for young adults as well as us old timers! A definite 5-star!
