Review: The Seventh Wish by Kate Messner

The Seventh Wish

3.5 stars. This was a cute book about a girl who goes ice fishing and catches a fish that says it will grant her a wish if she lets it go, so she does. When it comes true in a way that is not at all what she expected, she goes back again and again, trying to make more specific and better wishes. Meanwhile, her older sister deals with a drug problem. This book is a decent comp title for mine (mostly contemporary but with a dash of fantasy, which deals with more serious issues), and I felt like it didn’t quite wow me all the way. One thing that did wow me was the atmosphere of it, the uniqueness of the character, the details of her world that made everything seem real to me. I was taking notes the whole time.
