is a land that survives off the power of good wishes of humans from Earth
(Wishworld). Vega 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. Scarlet has been kicked
out of the Star Darlings and no one knows why. She is determined that there was
a mistake. Will she be able to convince anyone else?
I have some
interest from a couple of 3rd grade girls, so I am hopeful this
series might take off. I love the complex stories and little ongoing mysteries.
These must be read in order to make sense of any of the plot.
