In a nutshell: Deanna Lambert is early branded by fellow teens as promiscuous — so she struggles to put her life back together again. She constantly tries to regain the trust of her dad, who withdraws from her in anger. For the Salt Lake author, this is an impressive debut about fathers and daughters.
