4 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, General fiction (Children's / Teenage)

A lyrical debut novel about growing pains, reputation, and coming-of-age in a working-class town, now in paperback.

I was thirteen when my dad caught me with Tommy Webber in the back of Tommy's old 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 its 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, The Story of a Girl reminds us of our human capacity for resilience, epiphany and redemption.
