    Willow Chance is a 12-year-old genius, obsessed with nature and diagnosing medical conditions, who finds it comforting to count by 7s. It has never been easy for her to connect with anyone other than her adoptive parents, but that hasn’t kept her from leading a quietly happy life...until now. Suddenly Willow’s world is tragically changed when her parents both die in a car crash, leaving her alone in a baffling world. The triumph of this book is that it is not a tragedy. This extraordinarily odd, but extraordinarily endearing, girl manages to push through her grief. Her journey to find a fascinatingly diverse and fully believable surrogate family is a joy and a revelation to read.

    Julia is very short for her age, but by the end of the summer run of The Wizard of Oz, she'll realize how big she is inside, where it counts. She hasn't ever thought of herself as a performer, but when the wonderful director of Oz casts her as a Munchkin, she begins to see herself in a new way. As Julia becomes friendly with the poised and wise Olive and with her deeply artistic neighbor, Mrs. Chang, Julia's own sense of self as an artist grows.

Even so, Appleblossom decides to spy on a human family - and accidentally falls down their chimney!

    Emily Bell believes in destiny. To her, being forced to sing a solo in the church choir - despite her average voice - is fate: because it's while she's singing that she first sees Sam.

He and his little brother, Riddle, have spent their entire lives constantly uprooted by their unstable father. As Sam and Riddle are welcomed into the Bells' lives, they witness the warmth and protection of a family for the first time.

    Willow ist ein Energiebündel, denkt immer positiv und interessiert sich für fast alles: Sie studiert das Verhalten von Fledermäusen, züchtet Zitrusfrüchte im Vorgarten, diagnostiziert Krankheiten und begeistert sich für die Schönheit der Zahl 7. Ihr größter Wunsch ist es, gleichaltrige Freunde zu finden - dafür lernt sie sogar Vietnamesisch. Doch dann passiert das Unfassbare: Willows Adoptiveltern verunglücken bei einem Autounfall. Es ist wie ein Wunder, wie Willow mit ihrer einzigartigen Art zu denken und ihrem ungebrochenem Charme ihre Welt zusammenhält.
