Ugh...what a waste of my time. I should have known from the minute that a young girl gets three wishes and she wishes for 1) her mother to come back 2) to be kissed and 3) to be someone's favorite that I was in for a disappointment. It was just trying too hard to be interesting, magical, realistic, dramatic...I don't even know. Natasha was whining and unwilling to do anything; she just wanted everything handed to her and I couldn't stand it.

Additionally, the plot made no sense. Where did the wishing tree come from? What's the deal with her mother? And the bird lady? And her sisters are brats too, might I add. Nothing is resolved, either. You end with more questions than when you began and smaller interest to continue into the next book -- which I will not be doing.

I kept hoping it would get magical, heart-warming or a little redeeming but apparently that was too much to ask from this book. Not my cup of tea -- I wouldn't even recommend it to my students or young readers.

I think this book is fabulous. I recommend to all of the ages starting from 8 years old.
This book, Wishing Day is about an age thirteen years old girl named Natasha who lives with her 12 years old sister, Darya, 11 years old sister, Ava, Aunt Vera and Aunt Elena, and her Papa. Everyone says Natasha's mother is dead, but her father still thinks her mother is out there somewhere. On the third night of the third month of Natasha's thirteenth birthday, her wishing day, she makes three wishes. The first is for her Mama is still alive. The second one is to be kissed. The last wish is for her to be someone's favorite. Natasha suddenly finds frequent notes either on her fence, sidewalk or on her father's patio. These notes lead Natasha to think her mother is alive.

This book is outstanding and very fun to read. It is hilarious, romantic,and sometimes it can be teary too. Hopefully, it will many other's favorite too!

This book is a quick and easy read. While written in such a way that a 4th or 5th grader could read it, it is more appropriate for the slightly older tween or young teen. An older teen would probably find this stupid though. I think there are other books out there that are worth the time to read before this one though.
