Wish by Joseph Monniger
Last week when I went to a Seattle Sounders game, Make A Wish and the Sounders played a role. And I'm not gonna lie...I cried.
And I was reminded of this quiet gem, which I have liked for a long time. And I'm so glad when it finds just the right reader.
You will cheer for Bee and her brother Tommy, and be so glad they have each other. Beautifully written!
(And when you finish this one, you MUST read "Finding Somewhere" by the same author, which I absolutely ADORE).
Best for: grades 7-11.
