About the Book

Between her unstable parents, dysfunctional family life, and talent of finding herself in strange situations, Alice has always struggled with feeling insignificant and out of place in the world. More than anything she longs to find out why she doesn’t feel capable of being “normal” and figure out if she will ever be good enough the way that she is. When Alice, her younger sister Nina, and adoptive parents move from Washington to California over the summer she meets a strange group of people who help her make sense of all the mysteries in her life and she discovers that not only was she never destined for an ordinary life but that being different means she has more power and value than she could have ever imagined.

About the Author

Jessica Johnson was born in Provo, Utah and currently lives back and forth between Northern California and Eastern Idaho while finishing her B.S. degree in Biology. Jessica is very self-motivated and independent and has a remarkable ability to create which she displays through, music, pencil and paper, photography, and written word. Her first love is running, and she runs cross-country daily. Jessica developed an interest in reading and writing during elementary school and read at an advanced level early on. During these years she wrote and illustrated several children's books and was requested the rights to publish one of her articles by the publishers of The New Era magazine. Much of her work is contained in shorter descriptive essays, which she uses not only to entertain but also as a way to express emotion and discover herself. In 2012 she published her first book, What You Need To Know to Understand, a nonfiction/health/psychology novel, and was featured on Good day Sacramento in an interview on the inspiration for the book. She plans to continue to pursue writing as one of her passions as long as life permits.
