About the Author
Jen wrote her first book at age twelve, and has cringed over it every day since. To date, she's completed more novels than she could ever count and has published four. The first two, The Kingdom and The Morning Star, were inspired by her husband's homeland and feature Irish mythology, a bit of her opera background, and some forbidden love. Side Effects, the third, is a love letter to teens suffering from mental illness and learning disabilities while navigating the hell that is high school. The fourth, Going Under: The Oracles of St. Ambrose, is a teen paranormal mystery set in her hometown of Nashville. Jen intended the books to be an homage to some of her favorite authors from childhood: Meg Cabot, Carolyn Keene, and Lois Duncan.
Jen spends her days freelancing for various clients, providing editing and ghostwriting services for marketing professionals and fellow authors. Her greatest fears are fake sweetener and small talk. Among the many loves of her life, she chooses Liam, her family, Hurley, Luna, and craft beer above all.

I loved seeing Isaac Grace grow in this story. Friends are sometimes like family.
One word...amazing! I loved Ms. Barry's treatment of some very sensitive issues that many people face today. The characters are so easy to relate to. We all know someone like them & sometimes we don't know how to deal with them, but everyone deserves to have that one friend we can count on to help us get through anything. Ms. Barry had my emotions on a fantastic roller coaster ride. I'm excited to see what other fascinating worlds she will take us into.
Such a simple, sweet, and touching story
Beautifully written. Characters are well developed. This book details many struggles that teenagers face everyday. The reader can relate to the characters and see the characters work through their problems. After reading this book, people should be a little more considerate of someone who is a little different. Not everyone fits in the same bubble.
