        Layered in time, the narrative includes flashbacks revealing a girl's experiences during the previous generation, as well as a climactic time-travel sequence that is pivotal in bringing the series to its satisfying conclusion. — Booklist Online

        "This is Myracle's narrative sweet spot." — Booklist on Wishing Day

        "This unique coming-of-age story belongs in all middle grade collections." — School Library Journal

        "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

        "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

        "Lauren Myracle's Wishing Day is pure magic! A delightful read from start to finish." — Lisa Greenwald, author of Pink & Green is the New Black

        January 1, 2019
        The Wishing Day trilogy--about how three sisters use their traditional three wishes when they each turn thirteen--concludes. Myracle introduces Emily, who was "erased" decades ago by an unfortunate wish, and elevates Ava, the youngest Blok sister, who by building on previous wishes aspires to set things right for two generations of women. Nuanced treatment of ruptures among mothers, daughters, and sisters gives this fantasy rewarding heft.
