One of my favorite books, Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr, is being made into a movie! I just found this out because Sara Zarr posted it on Twitter. Not all of the information is there, but some of the casting has been made available.
If you haven’t read it yet, here’s a summary from Barnes and Noble–
“When she is caught in the backseat of a car with her older brother’s best friend – Deanna Lambert’s teenage life is changed forever. Struggling to overcome the lasting repercussions and the stifling role of “school slut,” she 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.”
Again, this is one of my favorites; it was absolutely “unputdownable.”
