    Willow (Julia Hoban)

    Rate this media item:


    • Seven months ago, on a rainy March night, sixteen-year- old Willow’s parents drank too much wine and asked her to drive them home. They never made it—Willow lost control of the car and her parents died in the accident. Now she has left behind her old home, friends, and school, and blocks the pain by secretly cutting herself. But when Willow meets Guy, a boy as sensitive and complicated as she is, she begins an intense, life-changing relationship that turns her world upside down.

      Told in an arresting, fresh voice, Willow is an unforgettable novel about one girl’s struggle to cope with tragedy, and one boy’s refusal to give up on her.

    it was a good book, but it left me with the impression that SI could be cured just by deciding not to do it anymore. That was the only part i didn’t like.

    I found this book at a bookstore in a nearby mall. I was really surprised that they had anythin SI related on their shelves. I was obviously interested. Though the book went under the name of “Scarred”, for some odd reason, it was the exact same story.

    I loved it, but I disliked the ending too. Because it’s not that simple. A guy doesn’t walk into your life and decides he loves you, and all the bad things go away. If I were in her situation, I’d go for any chance I had to still cut, without the guy finding out.

    I came across this book over a year ago now; the happenstance of it was crazy.  I was just browsing through bookstore shelves and the cover caught my eye. Willow is my favorite name so I read what it was about and it was unbelievable. I had just started to cut a few months prior so I had to get the book.

    After I did I read it and loved it so much. It’s now my favorite book. I thought the portrayal of Guy was amazing, but somewhat unrealistic to what guys nowadays are like. Although it does allow one to fantasize about the possibilities..

    And the ending I thought was sweet…but also unrealistic. It just made me want to get a guy so he would get me to stop cutting…and that doesn’t happen.

    A true cutter can’t just turn their “need” on and off and that’s how the book comes off. But I still consider it my favorite book and recommend it highly.
