Crosswinds #13: A Kindred Spirit

Ann H. Gabhart, Author Worldwide Library $2.25 (0p) ISBN 978-0-373-98013-0
Shy, artistic Erin had almost forgotten about Nicky, whom her mother called an imaginary playmate. And Erin had almost come to believe that Nicky was just a figment of her imagination. But when Nicky reappears, Erin knows that he was never just a dream; and he needs Erin's help. But how can she help him when she doesn't know whoor whathe really is? Only Erin's new friend Rick believes Nicky exists; through Rick, Erin finds the courage to search for the truth. Engaging plot elements (Erin's psychic connection with Nicky, her growing independence from her parents and her romance with Rick) have the potential to create a novel of supernatural suspense on a par with the works of Lois Duncan. Unfortunately, while a spine-tingling level of dramatic tension is occasionally attained, it is never sustained. Nevertheless, many readers will be intrigued by Erin's search for the real Nicky. Ages 11-up. (November)
