Do you believe in fate?
Kara Martinez has been trying to be "normal" ever since the accident that took her father's life when she was eleven years old. She's buried the caliente side of her Mexican heritage with her father and tried to be the girl her rigid mother wants her to be -- compliant and dressed in pink, and certainly not acting out like her older brother Jason. Not even Danielle, her best friend at Valdez High, has seen the real Kara; only those who read her anonymous blog know the deepest secrets of the Sign Seer.
Because Kara has a gift -- one that often feels like a curse. She sees signs, visions that are clues to a person's fate, if she can put together the pieces of the puzzle in time. So far, she's been able to solve the clues and avert disaster for those she's been warned about -- until she sees the flash of a gun on a fellow classmate, and the stakes are raised higher than ever before. Kara does her best to follow the signs, but it's her heart that wanders into new territory when she falls for a mysterious guy from the wrong side of town, taking her closer to answers she may not be able to handle. Will her forbidden romance help her solve the deadly puzzle before it's too late...or lead her even further into danger?
Jenn: What would be the ideal spring break for some of your characters?
The one they'd remember fondly for the rest of their lives?
Kelly: I think the perfect spring break for Kara from Invisible Touch, would
be a vacation with all her family present. One last time to be happy
with them all together.
Jenn: Do your characters go on any road trips? What are they looking for?
Kelly: Kara doesn't go on road trips. She actually had a terrible boating
accident and when she awakes she has a new ability of seeing signs
and visions and must piece them together to help stop unfortunate
fates. Her trips are of the mental variety. :)
Jenn: Describe your worst spring break ever.
Kelly: Hmm, my worst spring break ever, would have to be just hanging at
home the entire week instead off at some cool beach resort!
Jenn: Describe your best spring break ever.
Kelly: A stay at Catalina island with friends and meeting new kids as a
teenager. It was an awesome time!
Thanks so much for having me on your blog, Jennifer!
