Abstract: In the tradition of "Out of My Mind," "Wonder, "and "Mockingbird, " this is an intensely moving middle grade novel about being an outsider, coping with loss, and discovering the true meaning of family. Willow Chance is a twelve-year-old genius, obsessed with nature and diagnosing medical conditions, who finds it comforting to count by 7s. It has never been easy for her to connect with anyone other than her adoptive parents, but that hasn t kept her from leading a quietly happy life . . . until now. Suddenly Willow s world is tragically changed when her parents both die in a car crash, leaving her alone in a baffling world. The triumph of this book is that it is "not" a tragedy. This extraordinarily odd, but extraordinarily endearing, girl manages to push through her grief. Her journey to find a fascinatingly diverse and fully believable surrogate family is a joy and a revelation to read

Abstract: Impaurite e remissive, Shelley e sua madre sono abituate a subire: dal padre che le ha abbandonate scappando con una ventenne, dalle compagne di scuola che con le loro violenze hanno rovinato il volto di Shelley, dai colleghi di lavoro della madre. Per questo decidono di ritirarsi in una tranquilla casa di campagna lontana da tutto e da tutti: in fondo sono topi e i topi hanno bisogno di un nascondiglio per sottrarsi agli artigli dei gatti. Ma una notte un balordo entra in casa, le lega e le minaccia per ore. La rabbia per l'ennesimo sopruso fa esplodere in Shelley una ferocia mai provata: la ragazza riesce a liberarsi, insegue il ladro e lo pugnala fino ad ammazzarlo con l'aiuto della madre. Nello spazio di una notte, le due donne si trovano trasformate da vittime in carnefici. Da topi in gatti. In un crescendo sbalorditivo di colpi di scena, madre e figlia decidono di seguire il nuovo corso degli eventi. Fino a che punto saranno disposte a spingersi per occultare l'omicidio e restare impunite?
