In the tradition of Out of My Mind, Wonder, and Mockingbird,
this is an intensely moving middle grade novel about being an outsider,
coping with loss, and discovering the true meaning of family.
Willow Chance is a twelve-year-old genius, obsessed with nature
and diagnosing medical conditions, who finds it comforting to count by
7s. It has never been easy for her to connect with anyone other than her
adoptive parents, but that hasn’t kept her from leading a quietly happy
life . . . until now.
