On My Wishlist: Shark Girl

I love novels told in verse, and this one sounds particularly gripping. Apparently, this is a fictional account of a scenario that plays out at least once or twice a year: A young person is attacked by a shark and survives, but requires prosthetic limbs to carry on a "normal" life. Although, in this age of reality TV and media supervision, is there ever a "real" life after something as drastic as a shark attack? This book (according to reviews on amazon) included news clips and letters of support from other amputees.

I can imagine this novel in verse hitting my free reading shelves and being promptly snatched up by all of my hungry little teen readers. A feeding frenzy!
