Esme’s Wish is a beautifully written, enchanting novel about fifteen-year-old Esme Silver. At the start, we are introduced to Esme, her objections to her father’s new marriage. No one seems to care that her mother has gone missing and is presumed dead.
Esme believes there is something suspicious about her mother’s disappearance and sets off to investigate for herself. Guided by a mysterious bird and her mother’s art, Esme is accidentally swept into the enchanted world of Aeolia where she discovers new friends and the truth.
It the perfect package of a mystery wrapped in an enchanted world. Middle-grade readers who love fantasy will enjoy. I am not a fantasy fan, but I found myself enthralled and with Esme’s story and couldn’t put the book down.
Oh did I mention there are dragons, Sirens, and magic?
