On a sunny day at the beach with her mom and brother, 15-year-old Jane Arrowood went for a swim. And then everything — absolutely everything — changed. Now she’s counting down the days until she returns to school with her fake arm and kids will whisper, "That’s her. That’s Shark Girl," when she passes. But right now there are only questions. Why did this happen? Why her? What about her art? What about her life?
It’s been a year since the shark attack that took Jane’s arm, and with it, everything she used to take for granted. Her dream of becoming an artist is in jeopardy, and part of her wonders if she’s duty bound to "give back" by becoming a nurse. Meanwhile, her former crush, Max, reappears in her life, this time as a science tutor, and Jane’s old feelings come bubbling to the surface. But Max couldn’t possibly be interested in her, could he? And would Jane be better off with the cute boy from her science class, who makes it clear that he’d like to see more of Jane?
