I want to teach kids that they can do amazing things, regardless of their circumstances. --Isabella Allen, author of Through the Barbed Wire

Brown Books Publishing Group is thrilled to announce the release of Through the Barbed Wire, the debut novel by Isabella Allen on April 3, 2018.

Imagine growing up on a sprawling ranch in Texas with the animals as your most trusted friends. For 19-year-old author Isabella Allen, this is the full picture of her unconventional childhood. With an upbringing similar to that of her protagonist, she had the opportunity to let curiosity reign and fully experience her natural surroundings. From her outdoor adventures, she cultivated similar stories to share.

Through the Barbed Wire, the first book in the Wild at Heart Mystery series by Isabella, takes readers on a journey into the world of young, adventurous Isla across the Texas ranch where she lives with her father. Although she feels more in connection with nature than with others, Isla forms a friendship with her new neighbor Cash, and together, they team up to solve the mystery of the unexplained fires that begin to break out on the ranch.

“When I was 8 years old, I was very specific about what books I wanted to read. I would make up a book in my head and scour library after library looking for it. I never found anything close to what I was looking for. Through the Barbed Wire was one of those books that I looked for, but I couldn’t find.”

Using her writing talent as an outlet while overcoming disabilities in her own life, she has ultimately created something beautiful despite her personal struggles. With an entrepreneurial spirit, she’s now using her gift to inspire other young women.

“Your trials in life don’t define you. We all struggle with something. I want to teach kids that they can do amazing things, regardless of their circumstances. I also want to teach readers not to judge someone based on the way they appear.”
