Returning to Heritage Sandy Springs is author Jessica Handler. The author of Invisible Sisters and Braving the Fire, her new historical fiction novel The Magnetic Girl explores issues of feminism, equality, and sibling relationships from the perspective of a unique young woman with a mysterious electrical charge.
Handler captures the ambivalence of female adolescence, where the newfound ability to captivate others exists in unsteady balance with the fear of loss of independence. A thoroughly fresh historical novel that both captures the essence of its time and echoes challenges that still exist today.
