“If you’re looking for the same old formula middle grade fantasy, this isn’t it. Wish You Weren’t is magically real. You wouldn’t be surprised if you met Marten in “real” life, but what he encounters in this story is pure magic.”
VALERIE HOBBS, award-winning author of Sheep, Wolf and Minnie McClary Speaks Her Mind

About WISH YOU WEREN’T
Sometimes wishes aren’t enough…
Marten doesn’t believe in the power of wishes. None of his have ever come true. His parents ignore him, his little brother is a pain and his family is talking about moving to Texas. Not cool. So when he makes an impulsive wish during a meteor shower, he doesn’t expect it to make any difference.
Until his annoying brother disappears.
I’m wishing you weren’t here…
Marten needs to undo his wish. Fast. Before his parents find out what has happened.But with the present uncertain and his brother’s future in limbo, Marten finds himself stuck in his past. And if he runs out of time, even wishes might not be enough to save the ones he loves.
