Counting By 7’s by Holly Goldberg Sloan is a realistic fiction book. Willow is incredibly smart
and counts by 7’s to calm and comfort herself. She struggles with making friends, but she has
her parents, which is all she needs to survive. One day, after going to a counseling session with
the school counselor, Dell, she discovers that both her parents have died in a terrible car
accident. After the accident, Willow feels lost and alone. But, slowly, she begins to make new
friends that help her through her grief and become her new family. I would recommend this
book. I liked that the story is told through the perspective of several characters. The book
teaches us that sometimes during the hardest of times it is the people we least expect to bring
us comfort and hope.
