"I give myself to the music. My lings sing feelings into shapes. My heart pumps a rhythm; I live for this. I love it. Live. Love. I feel so powerful, I must be trailing a shower of sparks behind me."
I think I appreciated Indigo so much because I could really resonate with her as a character, especially as the daughter of an alcoholic mother. Indigo is being forced to grow up through the circumstances her family has created, which makes that transition to young adult even more difficult. I found myself crying for her multiple times because I had been in her shoes and knew what she was feeling. We all have to find an escape and hope that we're doing the right thing, but we never really know, especially at that age. The relationship she had with her siblings was also special; it shows how one traumatic experience can help strengthen that bond. There was just something about the whole scenario that really hit me hard and caused me a lot of emotional feels. As hard as it may have been to swallow at times though, it was those conflicts that really should define the genre and Cooper did this with such finesse.
"But right now there aren't any answers. There is only waiting and wishing."
With the mention of Jesse in the synopsis, I thought that I was going to be getting romance and first love mixed with the exploration and growth. However, I was happy that the love aspect was very minimal. This was Indigo's story. She had to learn to deal with her life and grow and learn in general. The story made so much more sense without it, and I am happy to say that it wasn't what I expected. Further, I appreciated that Indigo recognized her age and the larger picture. Her life didn't begin to revolve around a boy, and she certainly wasn't going to throw away her years of hard work for one.
"I realize that even in the darkest moments, light is still there. You just have to look for it. Even though I don't know what the future will look like, at least it will be different from now on."
I really enjoyed Wish for what it was; there wasn't a lot of extraneous drama or rollercoaster rides of angst. It's a simple, straight forward tale of a girl who is struggling to keep her family afloat. It truly is Indigo's journey of navigating the waters so she can stand on her own two feet, but figuring out that asking for help isn't always detrimental. I'm so glad that I stumbled across this book and gave it a chance, and I'm incredibly excited to see where the rest of the series goes. Wish is a quintessential Young Adult novel, but in the sense that Indigo is getting ready to enter the world on her own, it lays on that line of New Adult. It is heartbreaking and emotional, but will absolutely leave you with a feeling of strength and the power of perseverance.
Totally relevant and an inspiration for any adolescent trying to find their way.

I love anything dance related so when I first saw the cover for Wish, I knew I wanted to read it. Ballet is difficult and Grier Cooper describes the moves in such detail that you can picture what it would feel like to perform them. I love Indigo and look forward to more of her story
