Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-Told in narrative verse, this coming-of-age story showcases a teen's mental turmoil and, ultimately, her strength of character. High-school senior Jane Arrowood may have healed physically from the loss of her arm in a shark attack a year ago, but she still grapples with emotional scars in this sequel to Shark Girl (Candlewick, 2007). She struggles as she tries to decide which path to take: continue her love of art as a painter, or try becoming a nurse-a way of paying back those who saved her life. Poems are interspersed with "fan mail," which is condescending and inspiring by turns. Some of the letters say things like, "Seeing you makes me realize how lucky I am," while others simply offer encouragement. No one is more surprised than Jane by a budding new relationship with college freshman Max Shannon. She discovers that he's dealing with troubles of his own as he's chosen to give up going away to school to care for his mentally troubled father. Recommend this novel to teens looking for something that falls somewhere between the poetic melodrama of Ellen Hopkins and the soul-searching realistic fiction of Sarah Dessen.-Madigan McGillicuddy, Atlanta-Fulton Public Library, Atlanta, GAα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

Everyone remembers the horrible accident, but Jane just wants to return to her new normal—a friend-filled senior year with a bucket list that includes choosing a college and a major, winning the art competition, and going to the prom. Oh, and experiencing her first kiss! But who will ask a one-armed girl to the prom, much less kiss her? In this sequel to Shark Girl (2007), Bingham explores the reality of a teen whose life has been nearly destroyed by a vicious shark attack and her struggle to live a typical last year of high school in spite of the public’s well-intentioned curiosity. In lyrical yet easy-to-read free verse consisting of e-mails, texts, lists, and first-person narrative, Jane weighs art and nursing as career choices with purpose, struggles with the public perception of her as a heroine and role model, and relishes the feelings of first love. Multifaceted supportive characters, both young people and adults, add heft to this novel about a courageous young woman intent on re-creating the richness of the life she led before it was so rudely interrupted. Grades 7-10. --Frances Bradburn

In this sequel to Shark Girl, Jane is a senior in high school. She has adjusted well to having only one arm after a shark attack, and now is enjoying her last year in school and being with her friends. We can all relate to the decisions she must make at this time in her life, whether we are facing them soon or remember them from our past.

Kelly Bingham does a beautiful job of translating Jane's intense inner thoughts into events and choices the reader can relate to. Exceptionally lyrical writing will provide joy to readers of all ages.

Formerly Shark Girl by Kelly Bingham (YA)

This is the sequel to the young adult verse novel Shark Girl, which was a great read. #2 does not disappoint. The author states that she wrote this book because so many readers wanted to know what happened to the main character, Jane, after Shark Girl ended. In this book, Jane has learned how to cope fairly well with the loss of her arm. Her art talent is starting to come back. She has begun to volunteer at her local hospital and is trying to decide between the career paths of art teacher or nurse. She is finishing up her senior year and has made a sort of bucket list for herself.

Again told in verse format, this book is a good, quick read. It has humor, romance and is just real. Jane is a survivor. Secondary characters like Justin, Rachel and Max are interesting and well developed. I enjoyed it.

This was the best book, and it was so great and special to the character and the reader, especially when she graduates. There needs to be another book
