Wish

By: Joseph Monninger

Book Talk

The Make-A-Wish Foundation has brought attention to children with terminal illnesses, fulfilling a child’s wish before they die.  Wish is just one possible story about a young boy who has cystic fibrosis. When Bee and her younger brother Tommy take a trip to California with their mother to fulfill Tommy’s wish to swim with the sharks, their excitement is contagious.  However, on the day of the planned outing, the weather is bad and the ocean conditions do not allow Tommy to go down in the cage to swim with the sharks.  To help him overcome his disappointment, Bee takes Tommy to meet TyBerry, a famous surfer who has also survived a shark attack.  With the help of Ty and his brother, Tommy’s wish to swim with sharks comes true, but the outcome could cost Tommy his life.
