In the tradition of Out of My Mind Wonder and Mockingbird this is an intensely moving middle grade novel about being an outsider coping with loss and discovering the true meaning of family Willow Chance is a twelve year old genius obsessed with nature and diagnosing medical conditions who A second can feel like forever if what follows is heartbreak Loss It’s a universal state of feeling While it’s true that it doesn’t spare anyone people react differently to it Still society has provided us with five stages denial anger bargaining depression and acceptanceWillow knows this She is highly gifted If she could she would spend entire days studying nature She can tell you you’re ill just by spending ten minutes in your company So of course she’s aware that one day losing her adoptive parents won’t hurt so muchBut that doesn’t make her feel better One cannot suppress their current emotions just by thinking that in a few months they won’t feel this way That’s not how the world works It never will It’s no wonder human beings can feel such various emotions We care about so many things This is the story of six people brought together by a tragic event that will change their lives The writing style is extremely engaging I needed reasons to stop reading this book—sleep school—because otherwise I could have spent hours immersed in it The story is creative but realistic; the characters are authentic and likeable There is even a character development for many of them The only thing I struggled with was the shift between 1st and 3rd person narration styles Willow’s chapters are written in the 1st person while everyone else’s chapters are written in the 3rd person I preferred the former This book will break your heart very uickly then mend it by exploring the metaphysical concepts of hope and fate Blog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google | Bloglovin’

Counting by 7sFinds it comforting to count by 7s It has never been easy for her to connect with anyone other than her adoptive parents but that hasn’t kept her from leading a uietly happy life until now Suddenly Willow’s world is tragically changed when her parents both die in a car crash leaving he I work at an elementary school and over the years I've met hundreds of children The vast majority of them lie in the great bell of the bell curve but there have been a smattering of outliers over the years They've been weird because that's what it means to be hanging out on the edges of the curve and for some of them I've taken a deep breath crossed my fingers and hoped for the best for them in middle school Because their weird makes them fabulous kids and will make them fabulous adults But sometimes weird isn't the best thing to bring along for your adolescenceSo it is for the main character of our book She's twelve and she's delightfully weird I totally fell in love with her She has no friends but has such a stalwart attitude and such high hopes for middle school that I couldn't do anything but love her Things happen and her plight is a bit worrisome but she just keeps goingThis is a great YA book for adults I'm not really sure the YAs themselves will like it The writing struck me as an older YA but I'm not sure the older YAs will want to read about a 12 year old girl Perhaps the audience is other highly advanced 12 year old girls? But forget the YAs You grownups will love thisAlso In the acknowledgements Sloan listed 7 teachers who made a difference in her life I would like to add my list Mr Widermire McKinley Elementary Mr Kaufman West Jr High Mrs Brown West Jr High Ms Clark Borah High School Mr Sullivan Borah High School Mrs McCurdy Borah High School Dr Cottrell Cottey College
