Counting by 7s Juvenile Book Counting by 7s

4 stars.

Describe the book: Willow is an adopted child, a literal genius, and crazy about horticulture. Right as she finds herself finally making a couple of oddball friends, her parents die in a car crash, and those around her help to take care of her. Over that time, she ends up positively changing everyone's lives for the better, and finds family once again.

What did you think: This book was a lot more than I expected from originally reading the summary; it was sad, it was funny, it was happy, it was a lot of things. Willow is a hilarious character. I'd love to be friends with her. One of the things that was the saddest was having to leave her garden. I also felt bad for poor Cheddar! I was so happy with how it ended.

Who would you recommend it to: gr5+, family, friendships, gardening, school
