Formerly Shark Girl

author: Kelly Bingham

Itís been a year since the shark attack that took Janeís arm, and with it, everything she used to take for granted. Her dream of becoming an artist is on the line, and everything now seems out of reach, including her gorgeous, kind tutor, Max Shannon. While a perfectly nice guy from her science class is clearly interested in Jane -- removing her fear that no one ever would want a one-armed girl -- Jane canít stop thinking about Max. But is his interest romantic? Or does he just feel sorry for her? Formerly Shark Girl picks up where Kelly Binghamís artful, honest debut novel left off, following Jane as she deals with a career choice (should she "give back" by trying to become a nurse, or is art an equally valid calling?) along with family changes and her first real romance -- all while remembering who she was before she was Shark Girl and figuring out who she is now.

Jane Arrowood, otherwise known as Shark Girl, has been living with just one arm for over a year. Now sheís searching for a new normal.
