Fifteen-year-old Jane Arrowood struggles through a physical loss to the start of acceptance in this absorbing, artful novel which is at once honest and insightful, wrenching and redemptive.
From the Publisher:
A teenager struggles through physical loss to the start of acceptance in an absorbing, artful novel at once honest and insightful, wrenching and redemptive.

On a sunny day in June, at the beach with her mom and brother, fifteen-year-old Jane Arrowood went for a swim. And then everything — absolutely everything — changed. Now she’s counting down the days until she returns to school with her fake arm, where she knows kids will whisper, "That’s her — that’s Shark Girl," as she passes. In the meantime there are only questions: Why did this happen? Why her? What about her art? What about her life? In this striking first novel, Kelly Bingham uses poems, letters, telephone conversations, and newspaper clippings to look unflinchingly at what it’s like to lose part of yourself - and to summon the courage it takes to find yourself again.
Annotation:
A terrible shark accident at the beach leaves 15-year-old Jane Arrowood without her right arm and an aching emotional pain that seems endless. Written in verse, this young adult novel is an exploration of the range of emotions that Jane goes through as she gets used to life. A great artist and popular, Jane has no idea how to put her life back together, and she spurns support from all sides. Will she ever be able to heal?

Praise

"Jane's roiling emotions come across more strongly and clearly within the spare but free-flowing poetry than might have been possible with a straight prose treatment. A promising start for Bingham." 5/1/2007
