The book mixes magic realism and mystery with the daily life of friendship, school dynamics, and family ... Both major and minor characters are fully realised, flawed but likeable. This is a compelling, engaging story about friendship and wishes that will appeal to a wide range of readers.' -- Booklist, American Library Association 'This is a great story of friendship, family and tolerance, with a little bit of bullying behavior thrown in.
