Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. Having missed her flight, she's stuck at JFK airport and late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's sitting in her row. A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, Hadley . . . 4.49 stars
Willow by: Julia Hoban. Sixteen-year-old Willow, who was driving the car that killed both of her parents, copes with the pain and guilt by cutting herself, until she meets a smart and sensitive boy who is determined to help her stop. OK, this wasn't one of my favorites. I've never understood cutting, but I find it sad and difficult to believe that a pseudo psychologist/boyfriend relationship portrayed in the book helped the main character, Willow, figure out that she needs to try to stop.
