Overview

The Wish Stealers by Tracy Trivas

When a sinister old woman leaves Griffin Penshine a box of twelve shiny pennies, she sets in motion a desperate quest—because the old woman was a wish stealer, and each penny represents a wish she stole from a wishing fountain decades earlier. Somehow, Griffin has to make things right, or the opposite of her own wishes will come true—and it could literally be a matter of life and death. The Wish Stealers introduces a new voice in middle-grade fantasy, as bright and sparkling as Griffin’s pennies.

This book has inspired me to be what I want to be. Griffin is like myself because she wants to be a great bass guitarist just like me. I'm always making wish too. I wished for a bass guitar for Christmas because after I played Guitar Hero as the bass, i just always wanted a bass. That's probably somethkng Griffin wished for at my age and got it. The book has inspired me in many ways.
