About the Author

Jennifer Trout Quattrochi grew up in Hanover, Indiana, a rural southern Indiana college town much like the one depicted in "Barges." She originally wrote about Beth when she was 14 years old and, upon rediscovering these teenage works, decided to rewrite them. She holds a B.A. in English from Knox College and an M.A. in Communications from Wheaton Graduate School. She has authored two blogs and published several articles for Wheaton's alumni magazine, but this is her first novel. She lives in the Chicago area with her husband, Jim, and three children, Joe, David, and Lydia, two of whom she homeschools.

I enjoyed reading this story, based on the real-life and insights of a 13 year-old girl. It is very honest and has a good message.

Although I didn't grow up in Southern Indiana, I did come of age in the 80's. Reading this book was a sometimes nostalgic, sometimes slightly unsettling (but always rewarding) journey back to an awkward and amusing time of life and in the culture in general. With her unpretentious, Midwestern style, Quattrochi portrays one of those milestone life episodes that we usually stumble through, half-understanding, and only years later do we come to realize its full significance. It's refreshing to read an author who deals with a sensitive topic in a realistic way without feeling the need to be explicit in order to be "edgy". I'll watch for more from this author.
