Wish by Joseph Monninger


Wish is a light romance which may appeal to girls in grades 6-8.  It is well written and characters are appealing.   The book is set in the United States and has a strong American cultural flavour.  Although a realistic fiction novel, the plot line does not feel particularly plausible.  The storyline centers on a girl and her brother as he struggles with cystic fibrosis and is granted a wish from a foundation. The book contains piles of factual material on sharks and shark attacks.  An enjoyable read but not a must for a Canadian K-8 school library.

Grade 6-8 Recreational  Reading

Rating – 2 Recommended (if you have lots of money to spare)
