After my first reading of this book, I shelved it, thinking I would pass it on at some point but probadly not readit again. Now I come to clear out a few books and find I can't give one away till I read it again. Its more of a keeper than I expected.
"Everyone should read it…"
What a wonderful book. Counting by 7s tells the story of 12yr-old Willow Chance who is a child genius (possibly high-functioning aspergers, but this is not specifically called out). Her adoptive parents are tragically killed in a car crash and the book tells the story of how A number of previously unconnected people come together to make a difference to Willow's life, and how she, sometimes inadvertently, impacts on their lives. Despite the tragedy, a remarkably feel-good book. I found myself genuinely caring about the characters within and crossing my fingers for a happy ending. I finished the book and my first thought was- who can I give this to to read next? Fabulous.
