I had the pleasure of reading Counting by 7s this summer and I must say that I enjoyed it immensely.  It tells the story of a girl named Willow. When a great tragedy occurs in her life she must learn to adjust to new places, new people, and new situations.  This book illustrates how people who may seem like they will disappoint can surprise and how friends can soon become family.  It is a beautifully written book with a few bumps along the way but an overall happy ending.  If you enjoy realistic fiction and stories of friendship and family this book is a must read for you.  Below are a few online resources related to this book:
