Book Review: Story of a Girl

Story of a GirlStory of a Girl by Sara Zarr

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Some language, for anyone who would like to know. 'F' word multiple times and other language.

I don't know. It was a well written book. You really felt for Deanna and felt what Deanna was feeling. In the end nothing major changes, and that's what I was looking for, but I guess that's why it's realistic fiction -- nothing big typically changes, just little stuff that can impact your life in a big or small way depending on what you and others around you choose. I like a more fairy-tale world when I read, usually. I like things to work out, not conveniently, but still perfectly. So this wasn't my type of novel, but it was well written, it was real, it makes you feel. At the end of the day, if a book can make you feel something... well, that's pretty cool.

Not a waste of time. As far as realistic fiction goes it's not too bad.
