Authors purpose ~Rate this book compared to first quarter book.
I liked this book better than my book I read first quarter which was The Beginning of Everything. Both books were similar in what the theme was and both had a tragedy occur. However I liked Counting by 7's better because it was more real life because as I was reading this book you start to think about what if this actually happened? Then you realize it does and you really feel for the character.
Willow is very gifted when it comes to talking about nature. Talking about it often calms her.
Willow is different from many kids her age. She is just starting middle school and is unsure about how to act and what to do. I would say Willows biggest weakness is finding friends.
Willow is a pro at counting by 7's, whenever she finds herself at a cross road or just stressed she starts to count.
Myself compared to Willow
I on the other hand would totally break down. Honestly I would take a break from sports and other actives. This might not be the best decision however that is how I would deal with the loss of a loved one. In this case I think Willow would be stronger than me.
One thing I would change
What would have happened if this book was written in a different time?
