Now seventeen, Willow is living with her older brother, who can barely speak to her. She has left behind her old home, friends, and school.
But Willow has found a way to survive, to numb the new reality of her life: She is secretly cutting herself. And then she meets Guy, a boy as sensitive and complicated as she is. When Guy discovers Willow's secret, he pulls her out of the solitary world she's created for herself, and into a difficult, intense, and potentially life-changing relationship.
Julia Hoban has created an unflinching story about cutting, grieving, and starting anew.
But above all, she has written an unforgettable tale of first love.. So, after finishing reading this book, i recommend to readers to not underestimate this great book.
More details about this book: Willow Original Title: She's willing to include Willow in whatever she's doing, she's willing to overlook stupid remarks about kittens, she's willing to commiserate about failed quizzes, and she's even, unlike some people, compassionate about Willow's situation. But it's clear that as kind as she is, caring as she is, she's utterly clueless! Also, Julia Hoban has this really neat thing of listing the same thing twice in row. Example: Willow felt like she was going to throw up.
I'm going to throw up! You know a book is bad when you can't sympathize with a 16 years old girl who lost her parents in a car accident and now is a cutter to relieve herself of the pain.
The rest of the characters? There were more besides her? Oh yeah, that guy. The sweet one who read that book, right? I didn't like him. Firstly, he grabbed her arm big no-no and made her cuts bleed.
Secondly, And he also carried a condom around in his wallet basically right after he met her. Who cares about a thirdly?! Did you read what I just wrote?!
A boy carries a condom in his wallet after he basically just met you. I'll tell you what is creepy, the three page conversation I had to read between Guy and Willow while she was naked and they were about to have sex. Is that not weird? You know, the weather's been really nice lately.
We should go for a picnic later. Like, I get it, romance and crap, but after she finished crying?
I look like cow manure after I cry. Maybe he likes it dirty? He freaked me out at some points. Randomly he would just blow up.
He also threw a box of razors of her. That is not ok. He then "apologized" or some weird crap and suddenly everything was back to normal. Does anyone else find this to totally not be okay?
Chloe, Laurie, and Andy were just there. Andy's only purpose was to share some unneeded conversation about rowing and provide some idiotic comments for Willow to feed upon. They were bland, dull, and lifeless.
I understand that the terrific trio were "secondary" characters, but I'd appreciate some quirkiness from them or something. Chloe and Laurie were two girls who liked shoes.
That's all. Also, Pueblo or Pablo or Pedro who worked at the library was only created so Willow could get out of working. And for some unnecessary winking and "boy talk". Or whatever.
Who cares. I thought there was going to be some weird-ass love triangle. I was wrong. Oh, and why was David so calm about realizing that Willow had sex?
Is this how society is now? He said something about "16 and 17 year olds" and I was like, is this what kids do now? This is okay and common? So, I guess I'll list some of my favorite quotes from the last like, 20 pages.
Since I forgot to dog-ear the first Your blush doesn't end at your neck. I'm your lover now. That box of blades can't be your lover anymore, no matter how much they've been there in the past.
I do need you to talk to me! I do need you talk to me!
