    Magic that may not be magic.

    Have you ever tried to wish in a well? Did your wish ever come true? And if it did, did you ever doubt whether the well had magic? These are questions that best friends Laura, James, Lydia, Kip, and Gordy would say 'yes' to. When twins James and Laura move in to a house in the country with a well, dreamy Laura starts to imagine that the well is a magical well. It turns out that her imagination is right. As she and James meet new friends and get to know everyone and everything in town, they take turns with their new pals wishing and go on awesome adventures. I love the book because the friends used the magic for the good of other citizens in their community. This is an especially good book for kids who just moved and feel that they are just not fitting in their new town and want some encouragement and comfort in their new environment.

    This book is great. I was first just reading it for a book report, then I really liked it. I ended up getting a good grade for the report.
