    You will believe in magic....

    ...but maybe not the kind you're thinking of. I think the true joy in reading this book and the events contained within is wondering (or maybe even figuring out) whether what happens is magic, or human kindness. The children are written extremely well, and some of the blunt yet heartfelt sentiments will make you laugh out loud. I won't give anything away, but I truly recommend this book to fantasy, and reality, genre lovers. Which is it? You decide. Read and enjoy!

    A great sequel to 'Magic or Not?'

    If you're part of a club that does good deeds for others or have read 'Magic or Not?' and really enjoyed the book, this novel is for you. Laura, James, Lydia, Kip, and Gordy are back, put in another magical adventure! But this time, Laura sets up a club called the 'Well-Wishers' (thus the name of the title) and has everyone in the club--including her little sister Deborah--write about their own magical adventure. It all starts when the friends believe their magic adventure is done forever. So, Gordy threatens the magic well in 'Magic or Not?' so that it will start its magic again. The well must have heard, because it began to grant wishes. Each help their community, learn moral values, and even the true meaning of romance! This hilarious book is for those bookworms who love Edward Eager's book or is just looking for fantasy book full of adventure!
