Cover image Counting By 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan is a novel-reader's dream. Welcome to the world of Willow Chance: genius, medical-anything lover, plant enthusiast, statue, plan maker, falsely accused cheater, orphan. Counting By 7s displays Willow's outtake through a genius' eyes. And with a little help from the 7 most important people in Willow's life: Mom, Dad, Dell Duke, Pattie, Mai, Quang-Ha, and Jairo, Willow navigates the world of Bakersfield, California, even in the face of tragedy. This is a fantastic novel that is written in an expressive form unlike any other. I highly recommend Counting By 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan. (Paige)

I liked this book because it was about a girl who was very different and not truly accepted by her peers. She had been through rough times and it talked about how she went from friendless to accepted by quite a few people. I really recommend this book. (Emma)
