The Seventh Wish

on September 7, 2017

Messner, Kate, The Seventh Wish.

Charlie feels like she’s always coming in last. From her Mom’s new job to her sister’s life away at college, everything else seems more important than Charlie’s upcoming Irish dance competition, her science project, or how much she misses her sister. One day, while ice-fishing, Charlie catches a fish which offers to grant her a wish in exchange for its freedom. The most serious plot point involves the discovery of her older sister’s heroin addiction, and her subsequent treatment.

    I like the plot twist and how suddenly Abby started doing heroin and how even though Drew didn’t really like the wish Charlie wished for (that he’d be good at basketball practice) he still got some good out of it

    The Seventh Wish was a very good book. Charlie was never selfish when making wishes. I would definitely recommend this book.

    I like this book because I like how Charlie only wishes for the best things and shes not selfish about the wishes she could possibly wish for. Like she could wish for a whole bunch of things but she decides to wish for good things for other people like wishing Drew does good at basketball practice.
