Audience: 6th Grade - 8th Grade
Don't let the free verse format put you off. This is an insightful young adult novel about a high school art student who loses her right arm in a shark attack. Jane's story is told in a combination of letters, news articles, conversation and free verse. The sparse verse vividly illustrates her thoughts and feelings as she moves towards acceptance, healing, and strength, both physical and emotional.
