Jennifer Ibarra spent her childhood pretending to be Princess Leia, Laura Ingalls, and Ramona Quimby, and as soon as she was able to hold a pen in her hand, she started making up adventures for her own characters. She lives in Silicon Valley, where she does marketing for a tech company and spends her time running, cooking, baking, and keeping up with celebrity gossip.
Her debut novel, THE POLARIS UPRISING, will be released in late 2013.
When her eyes are opened to the oppressive regime her father built, eighteen-year-old Ryla Jensen must decide how far she’ll go to take a stand for freedom. Rejecting the role she's been groomed for since childhood means losing the person she loves most in the world: her sister, Alanna.
