Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


more to me than

most people


Twelve-year-old Willow would rather blend in than stick out. But she still wants to be seen for who she is. She wants her parents to notice that she is growing up. She wants her best friend to like her better than she likes a certain boy. She wants, more than anything, to mush the dogs out to her grandparents house, by herself, with Roxy in the lead. But sometimes when its just you, one mistake can have frightening consequences . . . And when Willow stumbles, it takes a surprising group of friends to help her make things right again.

Using diamond-shaped poems inspired by forms found in polished diamond willow sticks, Helen Frost tells the moving story of Willow and her family. Hidden messages within each diamond carry the reader further, into feelings Willow doesnt reveal even to herself.

Diamond Willow is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.


Using diamond-shaped poems, Helen Frost tells the moving story of Willow and her family.
