is a land that survives off the power of good wishes of humans from Earth
(Wishworld). Libby is a young girl who has been accepted to the Starling
Academy, where she will be trained to grant wishes when she grows up. But right
away she is assigned to a new experimental group called the Star Darlings,
where 12 young trainees get a chance to grant wishes right away. Libby gets the
call to go second and must travel to Wishworld on shooting star in order to find
the child that needs a wish granted, but she is very impulsive and easily
distracted. Will she use up all her special power before the actual wish has
been granted or even discovered?
Now that I
have read the first book and am more familiar with its unique vocabulary, this
read was even more fun. Although the book is fairly short, ever effort has gone in to
make sure the story is multifaceted. There are lost of extra little plotlines
and mysteries to fill out the world. I am going to by promoting this series to
3rd grade readers and do some checks for understanding.
