Jupitervale is a coming-of-age young adult novel about the dilemmas four teenage girls face over their summer break.

Abitha Smith and her sisters were abandoned by their parents at a young age. Having no desire to be separated by the foster care system, she keeps a job, attends school, and raises her sisters while maintaining a low profile until her 18th birthday ... when she can qualify as their legal guardian.

Kat Brazilson is a new mother who has plans to move home to Jupitervale to start anew. She knows they deserve better than the life their headed for ... but she will have to fight to get it.

Marie Kyle has always been close with her family ... but she is coping with the death of her mother, a loving father who's pulling disappearing acts, and a boyfriend who is an ass. What will she do when a new face compels her to find her inner strength?

Graciela Sinclair is frustrated from battling everyday with her older sister and the secret love she has for her best guy friend. Will she reveal her true feelings when he comes back?

A bright new author, Stashia Barnabá has been expressing her creativity for quite some time. Before writing Jupitervale at age 16, she wrote her first song when she was 7 years old and was involved with four different vocal groups. Although the groups were unsuccessful, her writing gained recognition as her poem “My Generation” was published in the November 2003 issue of Vibe Magazine. Her first novel, Jupitervale was published the following year by AuthorHouse. To view, visit
