Willow by Julia Hoban
This book follows Willow, a cutter with a bad past. Two years ago while driving her parents home from dinner a rain-slicked road caused her to crash into a tree, killing both her parents. Now she lives with her brother, his wife, and their child. While she struggles with her addiction and with her distant brother she meets Guy, a smart boy who shares her love of anthropology. As he helps her fight her addiction she realizes a lot about herself and her family.
Due to some explicit content, this book is not for people under 14 (language, cutting, mature content).
