What readers are saying about IT WILL SET YOU FREE:

“Amazing coming of age book, that will suck you in and keep you wanting more. I couldn’t put this book down.” – Amazon reviewer

“…the relationships between the characters (first Ashling and her mom and then Ashling and Andy) are so carefully constructed, you want to know more about them. By then you’re hooked and you can’t wait to find out how it ends.” – Amazon reviewer


Seventeen-year-old Ashling has always been a small-town girl, so when her home life blows up and her mother reacts by whisking her off to Brooklyn for the summer, Ash is forced to leave her simple life on a quiet street behind.

At first, Ashling refuses to leave the apartment – until her cute neighbor, Andy, coaxes her out of her solitude, taps into her creative side, and shows her everything the city has to offer. Ash has no sooner decided to give the city (and other people) a chance when she’s burned again: this time by both her father and Andy.

Just when Ash is ready to give up, her favorite community art space is faced with closure. Will Ashling be able to devise a plan to save it before it’s too late?
