Now a movie on Lifetime!

I was thirteen when my dad caught me with Tommy Webber in the back of Tommy’s 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.

  • "Sara Zarr's first novel tells an engrossing story with exquisitely drawn characters. Story of a Girl is 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 and Looking for Alaska
  • "This is a hell of a good book."
    Chris Crutcher, author of Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes
  • "Throws a sharp right hook at the assumptions people make about girls who have sex early."
    E. Lockhart, author of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks and The Boyfriend List
  • "A heartfelt, realistic novel about being defined by one moment, one choice, and then having to reinvent who you are....An evocative, thoughtful read from a debut author to watch."
    Cynthia Leitich Smith, author of Jingle Dancer and Indian Shoes
  • * "Realistic fiction at its best. Zarr's storytelling is excellent....An emotionally charged story...recommended for both teens and the adults who live and work with them."
    School Library Journal (starred review)
