I read the best book Friday. It's called Story of a Girl and is by a first time novelist named Sara Zarr. I'm now a fan for life and can't wait for her second book!
Here's a synopsis from the publisher- 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. Struggling to overcome the lasting repercussions and the stifling role of "school slut," she 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.
