Book Alert: The Other Side Series by Justin Jay Gladstone

Today I bring you a spotlight on a new book series that’s very different from the normal books I’ve been sharing with you. Life’s about trying something new and unusual (to you)… so be prepared for a message from the author and illustrator of The Other Side! In today’s spotlight, you’ll not only be able to read a book, but it’s interactive… you can use QR codes, mirrors, and social media to find out what’s going on in the story… something for those who like to be challenged and have a graphic or a picture of what you’re reading… it sounds really exciting! Let’s hear from them…


“If one thought created the universe, then who was the first to think?”

These words painted the very concept of The Other Side. 

It is a mystery and fantasy novel that delves into a parallel world that almost completely reflects our own.

If people reflect us, then what could we say about our emotions? Is our sadness a result of their happiness?

More on the story…

Leon J. Granttley is a seventeen-year-old boy who was diagnosed with a rare mental disorder known as; 𝑑𝑖𝑠𝑎𝑠𝑠𝑜𝑐𝑖𝑎𝑡𝑖𝑣𝑒 𝑖𝑑𝑒𝑛𝑡𝑖𝑡𝑦 𝑑𝑖𝑠𝑜𝑟𝑑𝑒𝑟. (DID for short)

To cope with this issue, he was forcibly enrolled in an institution known as the 𝐸𝑎𝑟𝑡ℎ𝑠ℎ𝑖𝑛𝑒 𝐹𝑎𝑐𝑖𝑙𝑖𝑡𝑦. It is here where therapists help patients like him cope and adapt to their 𝑖𝑙𝑙𝑛𝑒𝑠𝑠.

Despite his years of treatments…Leon’s family and friends would hear his ongoing complaints about this devilish voice in his mind…

One that would 𝐦𝐞𝐫𝐜𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐥𝐲 taunt him…
One that would 𝐫𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐥𝐲 tease him…

No matter what path Leon would choose, this 𝑣𝑜𝑖𝑐𝑒 would have a conflicting opinion to rival it. This 𝑣𝑜𝑖𝑐𝑒…would be so influential, that sometimes his choices would feel like they were not his own. 

It is this reasoning that makes the authorities in Leon’s neighborhood believe that 𝒉𝒆 is the person who assaulted a kind young girl by the name of, 𝐴𝑙𝑙𝑖𝑒 𝑅𝑒𝑖𝑛𝑐𝑎𝑡ℎ.


Leon is the 𝑜𝑛𝑙𝑦 one who believes that he did not harm this girl. 

The citizens of 𝐴𝑢𝑟𝑜𝑟𝑎𝑒 𝐶𝑜𝑢𝑛𝑡𝑦 say otherwise. 

Find the truth of Leon’s innocence, on 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙊𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙎𝙞𝙙𝙚.

  1. Wow, very fascinating concept for a book. I think more and more people are looking for interactive, innovative ways to read, too.
    Hope all is going well with you and yours, I kind of dropped off the side of the world for a while. Some things are still up in the air, but overall, getting much better.
    Have a great week~
