Description

The Forgetting Spell is beloved and bestselling author Lauren Myracle’s second book in the unforgettable Wishing Day series, perfect for fans of Kate DiCamillo and Ingrid Law.

Most people in Willow Hill think Darya is the prickliest of the Blok sisters. What they don’t realize is that on the inside, Darya is soft and gooey from feeling everything, all the time. When Darya turns thirteen, the goo gets stickier—and as Darya’s Wishing Day approaches, all she wants is to forget the silly tradition ever existed.

Except . . . she can’t. Ten years ago, a wish made by Darya’s mother splintered their family into pieces. Last year, Darya’s sister Natasha wished for their broken mother to return. The past is something you’re supposed to leave behind. Which is why Darya has locked and sealed her most painful memories inside the far corners of her mind, where they can no longer hurt her.

But when some of them begin to leak out, Darya realizes the decision about what to wish for—and what not to wish for—is probably the most important choice of her life.

        Praise for WISHING DAY: "Beyond a family or friendship story, issues of mental illness, homelessness, and what it means to be a girl are explored...the magical realism within the pages adds a lambent quality to the narrative. This unique coming-of-age story belongs in all middle grade collections." — School Library Journal

        "Myracle lets the reader decide whether magic is really coming into play. The touch of fantasy seems more believable because the story is so firmly grounded in realistic details of setting, character, and plot. This is Myracle's narrative sweet spot." — Booklist

        "Grounded firmly in present-day middle school life, this has just enough magic to be unsettling and keep readers engaged. Natasha and her sisters, pretty Darya and creative Ava, are clearly drawn, believable characters...readers will be eager to see where her story goes." — Kirkus Reviews

        "Concentrating on the idea that 'beneath the ordinary world lies a hidden world,' Myracle infuses enchantment into a heartwarming and well-written tale of sisters navigating a world without their mother." — Publishers Weekly

        "Heart! Humor! Sisterhood! Magic! Myracle's new book has it all. My three wishes? World peace and two more Wishing Day novels." — Sarah Mlynowski, New York Times bestselling author of the Whatever After series and coauthor of Upside Down Magic

        Thirteen-year-old Darya Blok struggles to unravel the mystery of her mother's eight-year absence and to do the right thing on her return.There is powerful, unpredictable magic in Willow Hill, where, on the third day of the third month of their 13th year, girls make three wishes which may or may not come true. If you are one of the three white Blok sisters, with Baba Yaga in your family tree, they will. You'd better use them wisely. Darya's mother, who left when Darya was 5, is back in town, shakily recovered from serious depression and not yet ready to resume her old roles. She wants Darya to use one of her wishes to right a wrong she committed at 13. Darya finds this unfair. She isn't even sure she believes in magic. Aching and angry, she's also infuriated by her new friend Tally's insistence that Darya's lucky. Tally lives in a foster home, and her mother, diagnosed as schizophrenic and institutionalized, refuses to see her, so her perspective is understandable. In this second book in the Wishing Day series, readers are drawn into middle-child Darya's changing moods by the first-person, present-tense narrative. Though set in the present day, occasional flashbacks provide insight into childhood events. A convenient conclusion offers plenty of room for her little sister's story. A poignant tale about missing mothers that will leave readers anxious to read more. (Fiction. 9-13)

        Gr 4-6-In this somewhat uneven sequel to Wishing Day, readers follow Darya as she enters her 13th year and gets closer to her own wishing day. Through flashback chapters, readers see a young Darya just after her mother left, and get some insight into her distance from her family. In the now, Darya's mother is back in town, but secretly. Darya and her sisters have been instructed not to tell Papa or Aunt Vera. Darya had always thought that Mama's return would solve everything, but it's actually ruining things. Mama is not whole-she's smoking and confused, and above all else she wants Darya to use her wishing day wishes to fix her own mistakes. Darya feels betrayed, again. Her relationships with her friends and family are suffering, and she truly has no one to turn to. While the beginning of the book suffers somewhat from too many loose threads, the second half is much stronger.

        January 1, 2017
        Grades 4-7 In Wishing Day (2016), Myracle introduced three sisters whose mother had disappeared some years ago. It focused on the eldest, Natasha, and the three wishes she made on her Wishing Day, a rite of passage for girls growing up in Willow Hill. Now her sister Darya turns 13, and it's her turn to repeat the ritual with wishes of her own . . . maybe. After unexpected revelations send shock waves through her life, Darya feels pressure to wish for her mother's desires instead of her own. Struggling to recall long-hidden memories, she makes her wishes and deals with the consequences. Feisty and independent, though loyal, Darya brings a fresh outlook to her family's ongoing troubles. While the Bird Lady's cryptic comments suggest magical elements, and the occasional flashbacks to four-year-old Darya's experiences with her mother add complexity to the novel, the straightforward, present-day narrative remains the most satisfying element of the novel. The second volume of the Wishing Day trilogy will leave fans eager for the story's resolution in the final book. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Myracle's current flagship series is being supported by a tour, exclusive author content, and more.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
