Summary
Willow Chance is a twelve-year-old genius, obsessed with nature and diagnosing medical conditions, who finds it comforting to count by 7s. Adopted as a baby, Willow is self sufficient and not at all bothered by her oddness, and her parents love and accept her idiosyncracies. But their unexpected death in a car crash means she can longer avoid facing the challenge of human relationships and emotions. As Willow pieces her life back together, she discovers the connections that bind us all as families. -- Publisher
Summary
