Review: It's hard to say I enjoyed this book because reading her story was difficult at times, and I felt like I was peeking in on private family affairs. Deanna's story felt like it could happen in any high school, anywhere. Deanna is a girl that made a mistake, and she is living with the consequences three years later. How many people have made a mistake that has haunted them? This story is one of pain and hope.
Bottom Line: If you are a fan of realistic fiction and stories of teens overcoming life situations, you might want to give Story of a Girl a try.
