Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr

Story of a Girl is a story of a 15 year old girl (haha) named Deanna who made a mistake that changed her life forever. At the age of 13, Deanna's dad caught her  in the back seat of her 17 year old brother's best friend's car with. Her dad hasn't looked at her the same ever since. And as if that isn't bad enough, Deanna  is also labeled the town slut for the rest of her junior high/high school career. But, her dad's scorn is the most hurtful of all. 

Deanna's father is unbelievably disrespectful and crude to her, and the worst part about it is that he is unaware of his words and actions and how they affect his daughter. 

As Deanna struggles to cope with her past, she learns to love and forgive herself. She learns to live with her mistakes and  not only accept the fact that she can't have a do-over, but  that she doesn't have to be the "town slut" or her "father's biggest shame" either.
