Marten doesn't believe in the power of wishes. None of his have ever come true. His parents ignore him, his little brother is a pain, and his family is talking about moving to Texas. Not cool. So when he makes an impulsive wish during a meteor shower, he doesn't expect it to make any difference.
Until his annoying brother disappears.
With the present uncertain and his brother's future in limbo, Marten finds himself stuck in his past. And if he runs out of time, even wishes might not be enough to save the ones he loves.

"If you're looking for the same old formula middle grade fantasy, this isn't it. Wish You Weren't is magically real. You wouldn't be surprised if you met Marten in 'real' life, but what he encounters in this story is pure magic." (Valerie Hobbs, award-winning author of Wolf, Sheep, and Minnie McClary Speaks Her Mind)
"Wish You Weren't is a sweet story about the blessings of family contained within the rip-roaring roller coaster of time travel. It is a page turner that kids are going to love!" (Katie D. Anderson, bestselling author of Kiss & Makeup)
I am a reader-reviewer, and love to help out all authors, especially up and coming authors.
Wish you weren't was a good story about a preteen boy learning a valuable lesson. It involves time travel, family issues, sibling fights, and wishing on a star. It was a pretty good story. The narrator did a pretty good job, the only thing was that sometimes he didn't have much feeling in his voice. Over all it was a good story that I definitely would listen to/read again.
