Diamond Willow - Helen Frost

In a remote area of Alaska, twelve-year-old Willow helps her father with their sled dogs, unaware that the animals surrounding her carry the spirits of dead ancestors and friends.

I will admit that I don't know much at all about this book, other than it's told partly in poetry, and diamond shaped poetry at that. Here is a blog post that tells just the right amount about the book. I'm excited to read this one!

I am still a little unsure about what diamond willow is, but I think it's a type of wood. Here's a picture for you to keep in mind as you read...see the diamond shapes in it?
