Warning: this book is extremely detailed! I have to say, I LOVED this story; it really changed my opinion and perception of, not only cutters, but many different groups of people. If you look at this book and assume it will be a sad and depressing read, you should definitely check those assumptions at the door; this book is filled with love and hope. Trust me; you'll be a much better person for reading this. Willow is a must-read.
Seven months ago, on a rainy March night, sixteen-year- old Willow's parents drank too much wine and asked her to drive them home. They never made it-Willow lost control of the car and her parents died in the accident. Now she has left behind her old home, friends, and school, and blocks the pain by secretly cutting herself. But when Willow meets Guy, a boy as sensitive and complicated as she is, she begins an intense, life-changing relationship that turns her world upside down.
Told in an arresting, 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.
