I was 13 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 11 o'clock on a Tuesday night. Tommy was 17 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. Download and start listening now!

    " A really honest take on realistic fiction. Sara Zarr doesn't sugarcoat the story or characters, and it's such a great thing to be able to read a character like Deanna and feel like you already know her and her story and connect to her so solidly. Zarr's style is simple, but it works oh so incredibly well. I can't wait to read her other work! "

    " I thought this was a good book, interesting enough for me to finish in one night. But you can tell by reading it that it was Sara Zarr's first book because the story seems really juvenile, especially when compared to her most recent book, How to Save a Life. Her writing has improved tremendously. Parts of this story seemed to be incomplete and rushed. Maybe the story wasn't intended to be fluid? I'm not sure I would have continued reading her books had I read this one first. I do think she's a very talented author and her ability to characterize teenagers and their emotions is spot on. "

    " I already wrote a paper book report. "

    " Deanna has done things that she wished she and everyone else could forget but it is not possible. She has spend the rest of her life trying to find ways to move on. The story follows the main character trying to come to terms with who she is and where she wants to go. The character is flawed in a realistic way which makes her easy to relate. A good book for anyone looking for a coming of age story. "
