Review #50: Counting by 7s

I could not put this book down. 

This book is an open window into loss and learning differences. It is a powerful glimpse into the heart & mind of a child who processes the world differently.

I was swept into Willow Chance’s mind, her observations, her heartache, her slow reconstruction. The characters in this book are crafted with power and depth—they stay with you. I loved that you never know if the next chapter will be the narrator giving insight into what is going on, OR Willow herself taking the narrative.

I will be reading this book again and again.
