- Wreckless Wishes
on June 10, 2013
Wreckless Wishes is a wonderful middle-grade read. I got this book for my daughter and she read the entire thing in almost one sitting, which is amazing since she’s been very into computer games lately and getting her to read has been like pulling teeth! Once she finished it, we sat and talked about the book for quite a while and she gave me a play-by-play of all her favorite parts. She’s excited for the second book to come out, even more so since it looks it will come out her birthday month.
The main character, Tabby, is very relatable as are the rest of the cast. She has a little sister, so she has to deal with typical sibling problems all while on an adventure to return back to her original form. But it’s not just a straightforward search for the magical crow. The group gets sidetracked, helps others, makes friends and enemies, and learns some valuable lessons along the way. Although the main character is a girl, this would be a good book for young boys as well. There are plenty of cool boy characters, like Shadow, and there is a ton of action. Though the genre is completely different, it reminded me a bit of the Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew in style, which I loved as a kid.
The only thing my daughter didn’t like was Tabby turning back into a human at the end. My kid is all about cats, so she couldn’t understand why Tabby wouldn’t want to stay that way haha! Maybe in the sequel we’ll find out Tabby now has the power to change between human and cat form at will. Who knows, but both of us can’t wait to continue the adventure in the second installment.
