Still not convinced you should read this book? Need more reasons? How about these 7 from the publisher:
- Friendship. It doesn't always happen easily, especially for Willow. But now she has met Mai, a girl with enough energy to tackle the impossible, and one who sees Willow for who she really is.
- Oddballs. We all feel like outsiders sometimes. Willow the genius -- who has mastered several foreign languages and medical-school textbooks all by the age of twelve -- certainly doesn't easily fit in with the crowd. Neither do the other people in this story filled with terrific, memorable oddballs.
- Hobbies. It helps to have something interesting to focus on, such as Willow's passion for nature. When tragedy strikes, it is the simple act of growing sunflowers that fist brings her some pleasure again.
- Laughing and crying. But despite the tragedy, this is a beautiful, satisfying book -- the kind that makes you see your own life in a new way. And through the heartache, you will find yourself laughing -- at the wonderfully absurd moments that happen even on the hardest days.
- Miracles. Those unexpectedly silly moments are miraculous. This is a story filled with everyday miracles.
- Family. And the most miraculous thing of all is a loving family.
- Willow Chance herself, whose heart leads her on a path to belonging -- a path that is surprising, exhilarating, and without a doubt, one you will never forget.
