Seven months ago, Sixteen year old Willow was driving on a rainy night in March with her parents. There was a horrid crash and her parents died. Willow now lives with her brother and has to work at the university library in order to make ends meet. She is known as the orphan girl that killed her parents at school. She also secretly cuts herself to get rid of the pain. One day, a random boy named Guy finds her secret and destroy the "safe" world that she created. He turns her world upside down by trying to help her.
Willow has a fresh voice and spirit in the book. Hoban has created fantastic characters that you will remember. David, Willow, Guy, and the other characters are original and seem real. She left their appearance for you to decide and focus more on personality. Willow is a gripping book that you won't be able to stop. The plot is full of twist and turns, and the ending is left for you to make your decision. I found it to be perfect for the ending. I also found Willow and Guy's relationship to be cute. It was amazing that he would do anything for her to get better. Willow is too amazing for word and I highly recommend it. I really loved this book.
Peace out, Sarah.
