Book Review: Counting by 7s

A few weeks ago I read a book by Holly Goldberg Sloan called Counting by 7s. We have a assignment to make a book report on a book we have recently read, so I chose Counting by 7s as my book. I recited my review to my parents (also known as Bongcook and Bonggeek) and they said I should post it on my blog so that is exactly what I am doing. I hope you enjoy it as much as they did.

Counting by 7s is a book about Willow Chance, an orphan girl who loves the number 7 and how she struggles through her life when a disaster takes place. As Willow makes friends along the way, not only do they help her through difficult times, she helps them see things they never would have thought of before. Since Willow never had any friends before these ones, she  has made special connections with each and every one and gives them new thought and changes there lives. Though all of her friends are very different, they stick together when thinking of Willow’s own good. This book is written in the perspectives of all of Willow’s friends as well as herself. This book is rich in it’s own uniqueness and the emotion of the story, and is so good that once you pick it up you’ll never, ever want to put it down.
