Counting By 7s

Review
This book is pretty sad, but it's very good. It tells the story of a twelve-year-old girl, Willow Chance, who lost both her parents in a car crash. (This is not the first time, she lost her original parents when she was put up for adoption as a baby.) Willow is so smart, she is considered a cheater when she receives a perfect score on a standardized test. She's sent to see a counsellor, Dell Duke, until the day of the crash. She is taken in by her friend, Mai's, family, even though they are poor, and you can tell Mai's family really cares about Willow even though they have only just met her. Willow somehow affects everybody she meets: Dell, Mai's family, even a taxi driver! But Willow is still determined to make a change in the world. Willow's perspective is so fresh and she understands everything. I loved reading about her and her stories.

The Lions of Little Rock
Author

Review
Marlee is a girl living in the 1950s. She doesn't like to talk, because she's afraid she'll mess up. As a result nobody knows how smart she is. But when Liz comes to her school everything changes. Liz convinces Marlee to face her problem a step at a time, and they become close friends. But Marlee soon finds out Liz is actually black, and was pretending to be white so she could go to school. Marlee has to be brave and face her fear of talking to keep in touch with Liz, and maybe make a change in the town.
