Myracle, Lauren

The Backward Season: A Wishing Day Novel

(3) 4-6 The Wishing Day trilogy--about how three sisters use their traditional three wishes when they each turn thirteen--concludes. Myracle introduces Emily, who was "erased" decades ago by an unfortunate wish, and elevates Ava, the youngest Blok sister, who by building on previous wishes aspires to set things right for two generations of women. Nuanced treatment of ruptures among mothers, daughters, and sisters gives this fantasy rewarding heft.
