Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr
I love dysfunctional families because, let's face it, most are at least a little bit crazy. (I know mine is plenty crazy.) Deanna and her brother, Darren, are doing the best they can with the choices they've made, and I think that says a lot about their maturity and sense of responsibility. I really enjoyed that message. I also like the importance of honesty in this novel. Even when things get ugly and scary and painful, the characters know they have to be honest. This was my first Sara Zarr novel, and I can't wait to move on to the next!
