Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I was thirteen when my dad caught me with Tommy Webber in the back of Tommy's Buick, parked next to the old Chart House down in Montara at eleven o'clock on a Tuesday night. Tommy was seventeen and the supposed friend of my brother, Darren.

 

I didn't love him.

I'm not sure I even liked him.

In a moment, Deanna Lambert's teenage life is changed forever. Struggling to overcome the lasting repercussions and the stifling role of "school slut," Deanna longs to escape a life defined by her past. With subtle grace, complicated wisdom, and striking emotion, Story of a Girl reminds us of our human capacity for resilience, epiphany, and redemption.

Synopsis:

When she is caught in the backseat of a car with her older brother's best friend, Deanna Lambert's teenage life is changed forever. With subtle grace, complicated wisdom, and striking emotion, this debut novel captures a girl's struggle to redefine herself.
