Razorblades

Razorblades are Willow's most constant companion and her best friend since the accident that killed her parents. Willow uses the razorblades to cut into her skin, mutilating herself to control pain and mark her body with the guilt she feels inside. Willow purchases her razorblades in large boxes and takes care to keep them well hidden. Her razorblades are often referred to as her "supplies" in the novel.

The University Library

The University Library is where Willow works to make extra money to help David and Cathy make ends meet since moving in with them. Even though Willow is only in high school, she is given a job at the library because of David's pull and influence at the university. Willow hates her job because it reminds her too much of the library at her parents' house and her father's love of books before he died.
