Willow is just your average sixteen-year-old girl. Okay, maybe not so average. She can heal animals. For her own safety, her veterinarian parents have made her promise not to use her powers. But sometimes her compassion just takes over, and she can’t help… well… helping.
Willow is a Droit, but hides her Droitism because people like her are feared and hated by those without special abilities. Two of Willow’s schoolmates, rumored to be Droits, have simultaneously disappeared.
When Willow’s non-Droit friend, Rain, is targeted, Willow wonders whether she should get involved–even if that means putting herself in the line of fire.
A mysterious new friend, Trae, just might be the key to unlock her courage.
In the end, she has a choice: she can deny who she is or declare her ability to heal, but either way, her life will never be the same again.
Thanks to Rockstar Book Reviews for having me on this tour and M. Weidenbenner for sending me a copy of the book to review!
Glow Girl is a novel of a girl with healing abilities with a bit of an X-Men flair but without the superhero title. Willow, the main character in the book, discovers that she has a healing ability while working at her parent’s veterinarian practice. In this world, people with these kinds of abilities are called Droits, and they’re not treated very well in society. Willow decides that she will hide her ability to try and stay ‘normal’. But ultimately, her compassion for others and animals stands in her way. When a mysterious new student arrives after the disappearance of two other students that seemed to have Droitism, she ends up learning more than she originally wanted to about her Droitism, and more about this mysterious new guy. In the midst of this, one of her friends seems to be in danger and Willow needs to choose whether her Droitism will continue to be hidden or will she allow herself to truly be herself and embrace her Droitism. What comes next are difficult choices, an embracing of self, and a blossoming romance.
Glow Girl was an easy read with a really great story within. Willow is a great main character who throughout learns to accept herself and others like her. As she becomes more comfortable with her Droitism, she begins to care less about what others think of her and truly comes into her own. Each twist and turn that happens in this book is unexpected and is sure to keep you glued to the pages.

She grew up in the burbs of Detroit with five brothers. No sisters. Each time her mom brought the boy bundle home from hospital Michelle cried, certain her mom liked boys better than girls. But when her brothers pitched in with the cooking, cleaning, and babysitting–without drama, Michelle discovered having brothers wasn’t so bad. They even taught her how to take direct criticism without flinching, which comes in handy with book reviews.
