    "I broke up with my girlfriend a few weeks ago and was looking for something that would meet me where I was at (a blubbering mess). This romantic piece of literature was great. Very sad. May have left me feeling worse afterwards actually. 5/5... would read until blubbering mess again."

    "Willow is a painfully realistic account of a young girl's tragic circumstances. Young adult readers will feel as if Willow could be their best friend. Her self-harm is a hard subject, but handled beautifully, with an ending that may bring a sense of realistic, not optimistic, hope to those that are struggling."

    "I've read the book and seen the movie. While the movie largely stays true to the book, the book is definitely more of a tear jerker. Being part of a long distance relationship for a while, I definitely connected with Clare and Henry and felt tears rolling down my cheeks on multiple occasions when I was reading."
