I read the book Counting by 7s by Holly Sloan. This book is about a 12 year old girl, her name is Willow Chance. She was adopted, she's not a typical girl, almost everything interests her and she is a genius. Since she isn't "normal" it's hard for her to make friends, until she meets a high school girl, her name is Mai, she really likes her and hopes that they will become better friends. This is realistic fiction because all of the events that happen in this book could happen in real life. For example, Willow's parents died in a car crash, a lot of people die from car accidents in real life too. I think that anyone can read this book and enjoy it because it isn't one of those books that are specific for one gender, also the events in this book could happen to anyone and be relatable to anyone. Willow had an internal conflict when she was deciding if she should stand up to her counselor Dell with Mai even though she wasn't completely sure if it was the right thing to do. Willow also had a external conflict (man vs society), when she has wearing her favorite gardening outfit and a girl thought she was a janitor and she was wondering if she should change how she looks so that, that doesn't happen again.
