Review: Willow by Julia Hoban

WillowWillow by Julia Hoban
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There’s something about reading a book about a cutter. I don’t know why, but i find them to be rather interesting, yet i can’t stop myself from cringing and looking away. Are they brave to inflict wounds on themselves? Yes and no. You obviously need guts to hurt yourself, but when you hurt yourself you just do it to runaway from a far greater pain.

Simply put, this book was GOOD! This book has been on my TBR pile for a long time and now that i finally got to reading it, i realised i enjoyed it a lot.

Willow blames herself for her parent’s death and her brother’s early parenthood which is why she looks to the comfort of a blade or a razor. Throw Guy in the picture and you’ve got a perfect guy ( no pun intended ) there to help her through this part of her life and show her the silver lining. With the help of Guy, Willow starts to enjoy life, make friends, fall in love, confront her fear and even resist the temptation of hurting herself.

Minor crude language, slightly depressing themes and involvement of self-mutilation and cutting. Otherwise, all in all an awesome read. Grab yourself a copy!
