What You Wish For
What You Wish For is a story highlighting the importance of joy in the face of difficulties. This realistic fiction book follows school librarian Samantha Casey as she deals with challenges new and old. She works through the loss of their beloved principal, fights to preserve his legacy, and helps an old friend to deal with the traumas of the past. The characters were all very realistic, contributing to a good, solid plot for this book. The language also flowed well, buoyed by the well-placed dialogue between the characters. The moral of the story is clear: Joy is a choice, a choice one should make in the face of difficulties. This is emphasized through the characters’ dialogue. This is a really good book that I would recommend to many other readers. I think this book is best for older readers because it talks about mature issues and uses mature language. If you enjoy realistic fiction, you’ll really like this book, and even if you don’t read realistic fiction very often, like me, this is a great book that almost anyone can enjoy.
