About the Author

Shawn McGuire is the author of young adult, speculative fiction novels that blend contemporary settings with a touch of fantasy and magic. She started writing after seeing the first Star Wars movie (that's episode IV) as a kid: she couldn't wait for the next one so wrote her own episodes. Sadly, those notebooks are long lost, but her desire to write is as strong now as it was then. She grew up in the beautiful Mississippi River town of Winona, Minnesota, the small town that inspired the setting for Sticks and Stones and the upcoming Break My Bones. After graduating college she moved to the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin (Go Pack Go!) where she lived for many years. She and her family now call Colorado home and when not writing or reading, Shawn enjoys cooking and baking, crafts, interior decorating, and spending time hiking and camping in the spectacular Rocky Mountains.

This is the second book in the Wish Makers series and tells the tale of Crissy. This book was hard to read to begin with as the emotion packs a whallop. Hearing Crissy justify what Brad was doing was hard to read about and so too were the reactions of some of those she told. Seeing both Crissy and Desiree's journey through this book was both amazing and heartbreaking at the same time. You understand further some of the reactions that they both have and it helps to put it all together. One of the best parts about this book was that there is no knight in shining armour (as such) who comes to rescue Crissy and lead her into a glowing sunset with a happy ever after. Lance is there to help her find her own strength and courage, to show her self-defense moves that might help save her life but he is not there to do it all for her. This is a fantastic book which deals with a very difficult subject. Definitely recommended.
