The Girls I've Been

Free from her mother’s cons, Nora learns to come to terms with her past and its effect on her. But one day, a bank robbery forces Nora to face her past and all the girls she has been in order to come to learn who she really is and to trust again. Suitable for senior high school students, this novel lends itself well as an independent novel study or in literature circles. Nora’s story and experiences may help students reflect on how individuals react during crisis situations and examine self-identity and an individual’s relationship with others, especially during and after trauma.
