Story of A Girl


Zarr, Sara. 2007. The Story of A Girl.

With authors like John Green and E. Lockhart singing its praises, it's no surprise that Story of A Girl was a remarkably good read. Story of A Girl is the story of one girl's attempt to escape her own story. Deanna Lambert is a sophomore-going-on-junior whose life has primarily been shaped by one bad mistake. When she is thirteen, Deanna becomes sexually involved with one of her brother's drug buddies, Tommy Webber. When the two are caught with their clothes off one night by her father, her whole world begins to crumble. It doesn't help matters when Tommy spreads the word at school the next day. The whole town knows her as that thirteen year old slut. No matter how many years have gone by, people perceive her as that girl. Will she never live this down? Will no one ever see past her past mistakes? Doesn't a girl deserve the chance to rewrite her life story? To begin anew? This book is one girl's attempt to do just that. Can a girl with a crumbling home life--her father has never forgiven her--make peace with her shady past? Or will this burden of shame follow her forever?
