Riley Bloom returns for more adventures in the Here and Now.

After successfully convincing Radiant Boy from RADIANCE to cross over, Riley and Bodhi are rewarded with a vacation to anywhere they want to go. Riley chooses a Caribbean island.

While on vacation, Riley encounters a nasty dog, and its even meaner owner...a young girl, Rebecca.

As the story unfolds, Riley learns the truth behind Rebecca and her anger. Going against what she is supposed to do, Riley is determined to convince Rebecca to let go of her hate and cross over the bridge.

Read by Kathleen McInerney, SHIMMER successfully picks up where RADIANCE left off. If a listener was listening to the first story, the first CD of SHIMMER could be inserted and the listener would never know it was the next installment - that's how seamlessly the story flows.

As always, Ms. McInerney weaves Riley's story beautifully, displaying the youthful wonder that Riley exhibits. Though there are other characters in the story, it's Riley's story that is being told, and Ms. McInerney makes that crystal clear in her portrayals.

I'm already looking forward to DREAMLAND, due out in September 2011, and I have my fingers crossed that Kathleen McInerney continues to narrate!
