Old man Oscar insists there’s a family in the realm of OtherSide that will take in homeless Shin McConnell and her only street friend Dibs Colby.
They’re convinced he’s out of his mind.
That is, until a narrow escape from the police catapults Shin headlong into invisible worlds. There she finds enemies who are out to make her life miserable, devoted Watchers who attend her twenty-four hours a day, and just as Oscar promised—a family!
But when an unexpected encounter in that realm threatens to destroy her trust, Shin is forced to choose between facing the pain of her past or rejecting her place in the only real family she’s ever known.
ABOUT "SHARING TOOLKIT"
If you've come to this page because you've read The Other Side Of Visible in paperback form, you may be looking for the "SHARING TOOLKIT" mentioned in the Amber's Hope pages at the back of the book.
For now, we've decided to do things a bit differently, so in lieu of a sharing toolkit we've included a share button for Facebook.
For bloggers and other social media platforms, thanks for your patience as we create a way for you to share!
The old man made sweeping motions with his arms and said, “Shin dear, all around us there exists another realm that is invisible to our earth eyes. Maggie, Madison, and I go there regularly to visit with the Original Family.”
There he was, bringing up that world again. Talking like a whacko, interplanetary tour guide from one of her science fiction books. People in those stories were always traveling to other worlds that were sometimes fantastic and sometimes times terrible. But it was all just fiction.
“The Original Family is your family too, Shin," Oscar said. "And meeting them is as easy as having your star-eyes opened.”
Sniffing, she wiped her nose with the tissues and glanced over at the old man. He looked pleased, as if he’d just shared the greatest secret of the universe. And that’s when a wild, upside-down idea marched straight into her head that was as meaningful to her as Oscar’s universe secret was to him. What if all these kind people are NORMAL? What if my life is weird and I’m the abnormal one?
...She gave Oscar a fast once-over. His eyes were closed and he was sitting quietly. Except for his universe secret, he looked perfectly ordinary.
Between the internal ache and the oddity of it all, Shin felt quite divided. Having spent her whole life trying to perfect her own invisibility, the idea of an invisible world was right up her alley. But it was all so incredibly outlandish.
A large sigh escaped her lips as Shin came to the conclusion there was only one way to find out whether or not Oscar’s universe secret existed. “So, how do my star-eyes get opened?”

The Shack. It does a great job of revealing the invisible realities around us...”
