Book Review: A Wish in the Dark

A Wish in the DarkA Wish in the Dark by Christina Soontornvat
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sometimes the righteous are not right

I really enjoyed this book! I love the unique blend of Asian culture and fantasy elements.
I rented this book from my local library and started reading it to my son, but loved it so much I finished it without him.
This book reminds me of Studio Ghibli films, and I hope to one day see it made into one.
I was able to read it quickly, which is a plus for my busy schedule. I didn't want to put it down because the mixture of believable struggles and magical elements was very intriguing and I wanted to see how the main character would overcome his past, being born into a prison and sentenced to live there until he aged out.
Beautifully done, I would love to read more stories that take place in the same world, and only left off one star because I wish I had known just a little more about the world and the other point of view character and her special abilities.
