Product Details

Praise

"This is the most honest, unflinching account of the sexuality of an adolescent girl I’ve ever read.  Kathy Dobie treads fearlessly in that undiscovered country."
–Haven Kimmel author of A Girl Named Zippy

“Kathy Dobie writes a prose so fine that she leaves the reader breathless with pleasure.”
–Richard Rodriguez

The Only Girl in the Car is a memoir at its best–haunting honesty combined with literary grace. An impossible task, but this book accomplishes it, in a form so elegant as to seem effortless…. What a storyteller, and what a soul to tell it!”
–Jennifer Lauck, author of Blackbird

"The Only Girl in the Car is at once as comfortable as a dear friend and as terrifying as a dear friend’s darkest secret. Open and honest and dignified, this is the memoir, often funny, always intelligent, of an era, of a family, but, most of all, of a remarkable and resilient girl’s intimacy with her own mistakes."
Cathleen Schine, author of Alice in Bed, The Love Letter, and The Evolution of Jane
