7. 'Counting by Sevens,' by Holly Goldberg Sloan
Willow Chance, a 12-year-old genius, finds it comforting to count by 7s. She has trouble connecting with anyone other than her adoptive parents, but she's happy.
When both parents both die in a tragic car crash, she finds herself alone in the world. Willow's journey to find a new surrogate family is an extraordinary story of triumph over tragedy.
