Title: Story of a Girl
Author: Sara Zarr
Number of Pages: 192 (hardcover)

I don’t exactly know why I did that at the top but I did. This book I pratically read it because I liked the cover and the library I go to doesn’t have Sweethearts by the same author. So I decided to pick this up, I don’t have enough money to buy all the books I want to buy. Story of a Girl is a pretty good book that reflects what just so happens in real life at some schools in some people’s life.

-From book jacket:
I was thirteen when my dad caught me with Tommy Webber in the bck of Tomm’y 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.
