Synopsis: ‘Willow Chance is a twelve-year-old genius, obsessed with nature and diagnosing medical conditions, who finds 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 quietly happy life... until now.
Suddenly Willow’s world is tragically changed when her parents both die in a car crash, leaving her alone in a baffling world. The triumph of this book is that it is not a tragedy. This extraordinarily odd, but extraordinarily endearing, girl manages to push through her grief. Her journey to find a fascinatingly diverse and fully believable surrogate family is a joy and a revelation to read.’
This is a story about relationships, families, friends, but most of all about surviving adversity.
Willow touches everyone she meets, quite often without realising it, and always for the better. She makes those around her want to be better. While she considers herself odd (truth to be told - she is), Willow is special. This novel has a large list of great characters and Willow is the unforgettable character.
A heart warming story, sometimes sad, often funny, but always full of hope. A book that is hard to put down once started.
