WILLOW is the story of a young woman whose parents are killed in a car accident, an accident in which she happened to be the driver. Because she is overwhelmed by guilt, and has no outlet for these emotions, she takes to cutting herself. That is the bare bones synopsis of WILLOW. But as bleak as that sounds, it is very much a story about healing, it is also a story that has helped many readers parents and friends of cutters put a human face on cutting, it is a story that has helped some people to understand why others might chose such a path, as incomprehensible as it might seem at first.
