Seven months ago, on a rainy March night, sixteen 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. Download and start listening now!

    " This book was amazing!!! It is almost impossible to put this book down.(I read it in 2 days) Its about a girl who has some issues in life but this one guy doesn't give up on her. I highly recommend this book to anyone. "

    " Why do people read fiction and expect it to be non-fiction? "

    " My best friend really liked this book and generally we have around the same taste in books but not in this case. I realize in the book Willow feels horribly guilty for what happened but the author stresses this so many times that I stopped feeling sympathetic and started to wish she would hit a major artery. I can clearly see how someone in this situation would blame the event on themselves but the author stresses this way too much. At least 50 pages of this book is just Willow constantly stating that everything is her fault. This book dragged for me and I feel like I would have liked it better if it were a lot shorter. "

    " good but intense... kinda difficult to read, but mostly because of her problems and her pain... still good but I wouldnt recommend it to anyone "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dennise | 1/18/2014

    " When i bought the book i wasnt expecting much because it seems like the ordinary story about the girl with problems, but once i picked up the book i couldn't put it down. Loved the book!!! Its interesting, and keeps you in your toes, for a bit more. Willow is the hope for finding that person who will come into our lives and saves us from our troubles. I definitely recommend you to read this book. "

    " The only reason I haven't written a review, even though I've read this book 4 times now, is because I could never do this book justice. It's that amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine-lindsey | 1/16/2014

    " One of the few books I've read more than once because it's worth it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tesha Daugherty | 1/15/2014

    " This book was about a teen that started cutting herself because she was going through a lot of stress. It was an interesing book because it showed how the cutter dealt with the stress in different ways and how it effected her life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 10/8/2012

    " It kind of reminded my of the Good Samaritan story, a lot of people know that she's cutting but they don't want to help her. Then Guy comes along and she says that he doesn't have to help her , but he feels like he needs to. I loved the ending! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 M | 8/27/2012

    " This is a really powerful book. It put me in someone elses shoes and made me understand her and this completely different perspective on life. While deep and powerful it also has a cute love story woven in to make for a perfect story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 6/24/2012

    " Willow takes you on her journey of pain she feels after her parents died, and takes it out on herself. You see how powerful love can be in this kind of situations. Loved it. "

    " What a great book. I feel like I've gained a better understanding of certain things that I wouldn't have gotten had I not read this. The author does a great job telling the story and it was a book that I definitely couldn't put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryana | 5/21/2011

    " I thought this book was very intense , everytime she would cut her self it was like i was actually there witnessing her , the author did a really good job. The way she deals with her brother and how she avoids eveyone its like she's all alone she doesn't need anyone but Guy "
