SHARK GIRL, by Kelly Bingham
Interest Level: High School
This novel in verse tells the story of fifteen year old Jane, who is attacked by a shark in the waters of California. The book is broken into three sections. The first delves into her recovery process in the hospital, the second deals with Jane's fear of returning to her high school--she worries about how people will react to her and how she'll manage with only one arm. The final part describes how Jane comes to accept the reality of her situation.
For those of you out there that enjoyed CRANK, BURNED, and WHAT MY MOTHER DOESN'T KNOW, this novel in verse might be just what you're looking for...
