Most humans have forgotten their sparkle … hypnotized by the darkness which obscures it.
Twelve-year-old Cara O’Reilly always thought her father was teasing when he said she and her sister had fairy magic. But it’s been nearly a week since he went on a mountain hike and vanished—right after an argument with Cara. She wished him gone, and now he is.
Doctor of Psychotherapy Victoria Harris uses symbols, metaphor and other techniques as a tool for building emotional resilience in The Otherworld Book 1: Wish [Ogham Publishing, October 2021.]
Cara’s little sister Bri hasn’t spoken a word since his disappearance. In fact, Cara feels like her whole family is under a curse. And it seems like all the adults in their family are keeping some sort of secret. Her world further tumbles into chaos when, after a close encounter with a living, breathing fairy, Cara realizes the old stories are all true. Now, she must find the door to the Otherworld to retrieve an ancient treasure. But can she battle the darkness to save her family – and the entire world?

Thank you NetGalley for giving me a copy of this book. Wish is about a young girl named Cara and her sister Bri, who grew up hearing stories about magic and Fae from their father. Until one day shortly after their brother is born, and their dad doesn't come home. Cara and Bri are sent to live with their grandmother while their mom struggles with a newborn and a missing husband. Together, the two sisters discover that maybe the stories they grew up with are actually real and set out together on a quest to save the small town. I wish that I could give this a 4.5 star rating because that's definitely what it deserves. It was a wonderful, fast paced story about Fae, adventure, family, dealing with difficult situations and coping with grief. I loved every second of this story and can't wait to see what takes place in the next book and follow Cara on her next adventure. Someone tell me where I can order my copy because I can't find it anywhere and I NEED it.
