Counting by 7s
I loved this book. The main character, Willow, is charming and smart and quite wise for a 12 year old. She experiences what I always feared as kid. My parents traveled a lot and I always worried they would be involved in a plane crash or car accident. I would plan what I would do if they died. Willow does experience this and unlike me, she really has no one. There is no extended family or really close family friends for her to turn to. She manages, somehow, to find people though and a new family is formed. It was beautiful.
This was a book that made me slow down and savor the words. Loved loved loved it.
You should read more about it on Goodreads.
