Reviews

"Lauren Myracle's Wishing Day is pure magic! A delightful read from start to finish." -- Lisa Greenwald, author of Pink & Green is the New Black

"Beyond a family or friendship story, issues of mental illness, homelessness, and what it means to be a girl are explored...the magical realism within the pages adds a lambent quality to the narrative. This unique coming-of-age story belongs in all middle grade collections." -- School Library Journal

"Myracle lets the reader decide whether magic is really coming into play. The touch of fantasy seems more believable because the story is so firmly grounded in realistic details of setting, character, and plot. This is Myracle's narrative sweet spot." -- Booklist

"Grounded firmly in present-day middle school life, this has just enough magic to be unsettling and keep readers engaged. Natasha and her sisters, pretty Darya and creative Ava, are clearly drawn, believable characters...readers will be eager to see where her story goes." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Concentrating on the idea that 'beneath the ordinary world lies a hidden world, ' Myracle infuses enchantment into a heartwarming and well-written tale of sisters navigating a world without their mother." -- Publishers Weekly

"Heart! Humor! Sisterhood! Magic! Myracle's new book has it all. My three wishes? World peace and two more Wishing Day novels." -- Sarah Mlynowski, New York Times bestselling author of the Whatever After series and coauthor of Upside Down Magic
