      Update I just reread this book after 2 years and found it just as good as I remember This book was awesome Full of mystery and adventure, but still with a tangible feeling of a realistic fiction novel, this was a true treasure to find There were a couple setbacks that held me back from a 5.0 rating, but it wasn t enough to keep me from liking it Dreamer, Wisher, Liar follows the story of Ash, who is convinced her summer is ruined when 1 she finds out her best friend is moving away, and 2 her mom [...]

      I would give the book Dreamer Wisher Liar by Charise Mercicle Harper 4 stars In the beginning it gives you so much information you get a little confused Then when you get halfway or a quarter in the book you can t stop reading you just have to know what happens next The book is about a girl named Ashley who finds a magical jar that is like a time machine into the past of someone s life Although it did get a little confusing all the pieces came together at the end This is why I gave the book Drea [...]

      Dreamer, Wisher, Liar was a fantastic book It was very mysterious Who is Shue and Ashley Will the wishes continue to work Where is Andersons I thought this book was very well written In addition, the characters were developed very nicely I enjoyed Claire s energetic attitude and how Ashley would send unusual objects In the end of the book, all my questions were answered and everything came to a satisfying end I enjoyed this book very much I would rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

    5. Mary on said:

      Good summer read for tweens.I general, I prefer realistic plots over plots that incorporate magic I was not expecting to enjoy a story that has a magical wish jar However, I really loved the relationship between Ash and Claire the girl Ash was babysitting I had to get used to the wish jar sequences, but I do realize they were essential components of the story Creative plot and likeable characters.
