Shark Girl

Shark Girl

 

 

Jane is a 15-year-old typical teenage girl. She goes to movies, hangs out at the mall, is an award winning artist, and

crushes on boys when one day at the beach her life changes forever when she is attacked by a shark.

 

Now Jane finds herself trying to cope with her new life and the fear of returning to school and the hopelessness she feels of not knowing if she will ever draw again. How is she going to button her pants, draw, break an egg to cook dinner? How will  she ever be able to get along with just one arm?

 

Everyone at school stares at her and she is tired of all of the pity mail she receives. What is it going to take to be able to cope with her new life? Does she have the strength to overcome the hurdles? 

Then enter Max Shannon – why is he even paying attention to her? It seems their new friendship is one of the best

things right now. 

 

Told in verse this book moves fast and is intermixed with poems, letters, telephone conversations and newspaper

clippings. A very engaging story that will grip reluctant readers.
