Product Description

Melody Carlson is back with a new character and a new series! Samantha McGregor seems like a normal teen, but she has an unusual gift--God allows her to see glimpses into other people's lives and problems through visions and dreams. With more and more interest in the supernatural (such as TV shows like Medium and Ghost Whisperer), The Secret Life of Samantha McGregor series looks at supernatural gifts from a strong Christian perspective. Read Melody Carlson's Author's Note at the beginning of the book, and the Resource Guide at the back for more information.

In Bad Connection, an acquaintance and school-mate of Sam's goes missing. Kayla Henderson likes to party, break the rules and live on the edge, so most people aren't very surprised when she doesn't show up for school. Like everyone else, Sam assumes Kayla has simply run away. That changes when she has a vision of Kayla tied up, with duct tape over her mouth. Freaked by the image, Sam wonders what really happened to Kayla, and whether the vision was real or just a silly dream. With her deceased father's former police partner, Sam embarks on a mission to find her friend before it's too late.

Publisher's Description

Meet Samantha McGregor

She seems like your average teen, but Samantha is unusually gifted. God gives her visions and dreams that offer unconventional glimpses into other people’s lives and problems. It’s a powerful gift with a lot of responsibility…

Bad Connection: Book One

Kayla Henderson lives on the edge. She likes to break the rules, considers partying an extracurricular activity, and can’t stand her parents. So, most people aren’t surprised when she goes missing. Like everyone else, Samantha McGregor assumes Kayla has run away. But then she has a vision where Kayla is tied up with duct tape over her mouth. Freaked by the image, Samantha wonders, Is Kayla alive or dead? Was the vision real or just a silly dream? Most important, can Kayla be found before it’s too late?

Reaader's Guide Included!

Story Behind the Book

"The secular world has become very interested in ’supernatural’ gifts. Take, for example, shows like Joan of Arcadia , The Medium, Monk, and Dead Zone . Yet it’s God who gives every good and perfect gift. My guess is that we humans barely tap into the vast variety of gifts that He has to offer. Not only that, but our fast-paced, high-tech culture rarely relies on those good ’old-fashioned’ character traits like insight, intuition, wisdom, and foresight. My hope is that this series will provide a fun way for teens to explore deeper levels of spirituality and creativity while inspiring them to a greater love for God."
— Melody Carlson

    Absolutely amazing. At first when i saw this i thought it would be dumb and stupid. Then i sat down and read it. I couldn't put down. It was like i was in the book. I was Samantha, i could feel her emotion, her thought, see her visions. This is one of my favorite books by Melody Carlson. This actually inspired me write a book of my own. It hasn't been written yet ,but i working on it. I'm so glad i read this book because if I hadn't i would be writing a story of my own. God bless Melody Carlson and may she be filled with wisdom and story ideas forever.
