The Wishing Game by Meg Shaffer
September 1, 2023 (by Tara Repucci)
If you read books under the covers with a flashlight as a child, this story is written for you. It is about a reclusive beloved children’s author who resurfaces with a new book and a one-of-a-kind competition. Read this when you are in the mood for a magical and hopeful contemporary fantasy that will give you all the feels. It is The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune meets Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl with a dash of the TV show Fantasy Island.
Best paired with s’mores, hot dogs, chips, bottled water and Gatorade. XO, Tara
