There is so much to talk about Counting by 7s that for a middle-grade book, there is philosophy that can't be ignored. This is a story of a gifted girl named Willow Chance that has a significant character of 7s and has a way about herself that nobody understood her. Adopted by foster parents - trage...

WOW. Amazing. And how is this book not a movie yet?! I would cry all the way through.

Just as Natasha did, I enjoyed the book enormously. I was totally enthralled and more than wiling to suspend my disbelief in order to enjoy the string of coincidences, good and bad, that were almost magical. It is a charming, humane, warm sort of book with the happy ending that implies.But there was...

***Note: this review assumes that you've read the book.*** One-sentence summary: a nice ensemble piece that shows you can build a family from disparate people, as long as there's love and acceptance; but the story is undermined somewhat by the fact that all the actors (even the flawed ones) are al...

When it comes to the technical aspects of Counting by 7s, this book is five star all the way. It's written in a style I absolutely LOVED, and the voice of the protagonist we clear to me and brilliantly rendered all through the writing. I mentioned in my updated how difficult it must be to write a tw...
