"A quirky time-traveling adventure mixed with a treatise on the plight of the working mother . . . Wicoff has a comic touch with this amiable fantasy."

"With a bit of time-space-bending whimsy, Wicoff taps into every parent's wistful dream."

"A thought-provoking, gimlet-eyed satire of contemporary motherhood in the guise of a romantic comedy, Wishful Thinking is a Trojan horse of a novel, delivering incisive social commentary while it entertains and delights you. I devoured every word of this funny, brilliant book."
--Christina Baker Kline, author of Orphan Train

"Wishful Thinking is funny, tender, perceptive--I tore through it with delight."
--Gretchen Rubin, best-selling author of The Happiness Project and Happier At Home

"Wishful Thinking is a whimsical, time-bending tale about an overextended, working single mother's Year of Magical Living. The solution handed to Jennifer is both fanciful and practical. Who wouldn't want extra hours added to each day? If only!"
--Hope Edelman, The Possibility of Everything

"In Wishful Thinking, Kamy Wicoff takes a fantasy we've all had and turns it into a sparkling, witty, sympathetic take on the stresses, and the rewards, of motherhood, of work, and of being alive at this moment."
--Francine Prose, author of Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris: 1932
