In Barcelona, Natalie relishes being with her best-friend Jeremy, but almost as soon as they reach their hotel, he leaves her adrift, searching for not only him but for her own purpose. As she wanders the barrio gotico, she discovers the truth about Jeremy--but also about herself.
"Jessica Barksdale Inclan's writing is gorgeous and moving. With relatable characters and real dilemmas, "It Happened in Barcelona" moves us through the sights, sounds and smells of an unexpected European underworld, and shows us the ways - in the name of love - that we avoid hard truths about ourselves and others. An excellent read."--Ericka Lutz, author of The Edge of Maybe, a "delightful family drama [that] skewers all that we enlightened Bay Area folk hold dear."
