Publisher's Summary

Seven months ago, on a rainy March night, 16-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.


What the Critics Say

"Willow's acknowledgment of the cause of her grief--that she'll never be anyone's daughter again--is a sharp insight, and Hoban's appropriately complex portrayal of cutting makes this a good choice on a crucial subject." (Kirkus Reviews)

Great story .. Bad narration

Well as a story I really liked the world of Willow and I found myself drawn into it , except for the fact that the narrator was soo annoying I couldn't listen to her for more than an hour until I decided to read the book instead .. but it is a story worth reading anyhow
