    Diamond Willow By Helen Frost- Review By Kylie

    Diamond Willow is about a tweleve-year-old girl named Willow Who goes through a thrilling adventure to save her father's lead sled dog, Roxy, (who is really Willow's sister, Diamond.), from possible uthinization because of her loss of eyesight from a sledding ingury. Her friends, Kaylie and Marty, help her along the way. In the text of the book, you will notice tha most of the text is in the shapes of diamonds. In bold words are things that Willow thinks about in the points of time during the story. A great book for dog lovers that will keep you on the edge of your seat! Amazing thrills and action that will keep you reading until the end. A truely exellent story.

    Highly Recommended!

    DIAMOND WILLOW is a beautifully written insightful book that has a very heartwarmning story written in free verse. It is all about very important relationships set in winter time in Alaska. It is very appropriate for upper elementary and middle school students.

    This book is amazing - the use of a diamond willow as a name, symbol, and even a poetic form was brilliant. Interjection of prose by animals who are spirits of Willow's ancestors was creative. The imaginings of Willow's twin sister while still in the womb was amazing. The entire work made you cry and hope for the best and ended with the feeling of peace and awe.

    Beautiful!

    I am a middle school librarian and former middle school teacher, so I have read A LOT of books for kids and teens. Diamond Willow was one of the most beautiful books I've read in a long time! From the unique format to the way all the characters and animals are connected, teachers and tween/teen readers should not miss this one. It's so short it can be read in one sitting.

    great headline in relation to book.

    this was a great book for our 10 year old girls with mothers book club. It was good for the girls to show how they can relate to one another in their life.

    Great book

    My son's school is using this book for their book club - so I snuck it away and read it. Excellent book. Could be used to show cultural aspects. Great perspective on how difficult it is to be a pre-teen!

    We LOVED this story

    I read this story aloud with my 9 year old daughter. It is the best story we have read together all year. The characters are interesting-- some are animals. My daughter loved reading the diamond shaped poems and then highlighted messages in each one too.
