Correlation by Mia Grace
Synopsis: When the past and the present collide…
Hailey Kent knows how she wants to spend the summer before her junior year in high school: hanging out at the pool with Jenna, her BFF; riding her new trail bike on Vermont’s country roads; and flirting with Jenna’s hot older brother, Cody.
Hailey’s plans are shattered when a post-graduation accident puts her brother into a coma. Feeling guilty for not stopping him from going out that night, she seeks solace in exploring an old house and its overgrown gardens.
A mysterious correlation of events propels her back in time to the Vietnam War era, where she realizes she can use her knowledge of one boy’s fate to save his life.But first, Hailey needs to convince him of her sanity.

Grandmas Have Imaginary Friends, Too
Some of us never outgrow our need for imaginary friends.
I had plenty of them growing up, and, weird as it may be, I still do.
Some of them are the characters in my books, of course. Each is vividly real to me. I can’t make you “see” Peter in Correlationunless I know him well. I can’t tell you what Hailey is thinking unless I’m in her head.
Some of them ride along in the car with me when I’m on my way to work. I’m alone, right? It’s the perfect time to have a conversation with a character who’s giving me trouble, to talk through a difficult passage. “Okay, Jenna, how are you going to feel about the fact that your brother caused a devastating car accident?”
I used to worry that someone in an adjacent car would notice me talking to no one, especially when at a stoplight, and I would self-consciously stop talking. Thankfully, with the invention of speaker phones, that is no longer a problem. I jabber away, and no one looks twice. Technology is a wonderful thing, even when you’re not using it.
I do interviews on the radio about the story behindCorrelation—not for real, of course, but in my car with my imaginary interviewer. Peter’s girlfriend, Susan, tells me how she coped with the draft notice that would send Peter to Vietnam.
New friends wait in the wings to tell me their stories. Some, I’m still getting to know, learning more about them before I put their stories on paper. Old friends are never gone. They come by once in a while to remind me that they’re out there, waiting on Amazon for someone new to come and read their stories.
Life is never boring when you can count on a steady stream of imaginary friends.
