Book Review – Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan
If you had a child who was a little different…or maybe you were a little different as a child, you will love the story of strange (as in genius) Willow Chance.
Willow’s life is anything but normal, and her brain is anything but normal as well. Tragedy in her childhood throws her into crazy adventure where she navigates her own strange approach to life, dealing with being a highly capable student in a mediocre school and the loss of both her adopted parents.
Willow finds herself befriending a most unusual school councilor, an a-typical Vietnamese-American family and a taxi driver – each who play a big role in what happens next to Willow’s story and her goal of finding where she belong and who will be her forever family.
I found the characters engaging, often endearing and sometimes silly. I had several laugh out loud moments in this sweet easy read book. You will go away smiling.
Five stars for Counting by 7s.
