Willow by Julia Hoban

  • 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.

Product Description

Willow is an insightful, intense story of a young girl who loses her parents in a car accident. Being the driver, Willow blames herself for her parents death and begins to self injure to cope with the guilt and loss. In this in-depth novel, we follow Willow through her journey from self injuring, to love, and ultimately through recovery. Julia Hoban herself was not a self injurer, however she offers real and in-depth perspective and insight on the thought processes, feelings, and reasons behind self injuring. While the story does give some detail as to the manner of self injury, it is a compelling, positive novel detailing Willow's recovery. It was read with rave reviews by S.A.F.E. Focus Group in Akron, Ohio. I believe that this is a must read for anyone struggling with self injury, or help understanding someone who self injures.
