Title: Willow
Author: Julia Hoban
Ratings: 4/5 Stars

Seven months ago, on a rainy March night, sixteen year- old Willow's parents died in a horrible car accident. Willow was driving. Now her older brother barely speaks to her, her new classmates know her as the killer orphan girl, and Willow is blocking the pain by secretly cutting herself. But when one boy - one sensitive, soulful boy - discovers Willow's secret, it sparks an intense relationship that turns the "safe" world Willow has created for herself upside down.

Told in an extraordinary fresh voice, Willow is an unforgettable novel about one girl's struggle to cope with tragedy, and one boy's refusal to give up on her.

My Thoughts:
This book was about a girl name Willow who is dealing with the death of her parents and is living with her brother and his wife. Willow becomes a cutter. Not being able to deal with the emotions of her parents death.

I liked this book. I loved the way it was written. So much emotions from a young girl who has to deal with the death of her parents and on top of that dealing with issue of her staying in a new environment with her older brother, who barely speaks to her anymore. With all the bad in the book, I liked Willow and Guy's relationship. It was a breath of fresh air to see these happy moments with all the bad issues that Willow was going through.

This but was overall good. It was an opener to see the things that some people experience. Great emotion, happiness, romance. I recommend it to everyone. It was a quick read for me.
