Sara Zarr's lyrical debut novel--a National Book Award finalist--has been adapted for TV! I was thirteen when my dad caught me with Tommy Webber in the back of Tommy's Buick. Tommy was seventeen and the supposed friend of my brother, Darren.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."...The rarest mix: It's both impossible to put down and the kind of book that stays with you long after you've finished reading it."--John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars
