A book review by Clarissa Estrada
You would never expect something so big would come from such a small town….would you?
In this small town tale, they hide a secret: Every year, on someone’s birthday, they go to the wishing cave. They speak it alone, and then leave, never able to go back to change it.
Well, Eldon is searching for a very special wish — a wish like no other, a wish to top them all — and he can’t seem to think of it. So he asks the rest of the town what they wished for, and in the process, reveals secrets from the past, and maybe even … a new beginning for the future?
