Dreamer Wisher Liar by Charise Mericle Harper
Dreamer Wisher Liar is a wonderful book. I love it so much; it's difficult to put that into a description.
On the back of the book, it says,"Sometimes the best surprises are the ones that were there all along. This is a story about friendship, magic, and a summer that changed everything." That describes it better than I can!
Ashley is the main character, and her best friend is moving away. While her friend is at summer camp before moving to Oregon, Ashley writes to her friend: About babysitting Claire, and what they do together.
While making something in the basement, Ashley finds an old jar labeled, "Wishes". Inside it are balls of paper, someone's wishes. After reading one, it takes you to a time that the person was thinking about when they wrote the wish.
I won't say more; just read this amazing book!
It's one of the best books I've read this summer! Enjoy!
