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.
