June 2014 Book of the Month Enter an extraordinary magical world in which wishes can cause no end of trouble. When Tanya encounters the magical wishing tree she understands completely that she can only have one wish. Tanya already has the magical power of being able to see fairies – much to her mother’s disbelief. Now, she steps into a much darker kind of magic with Ratty as her companion. Ratty is a little boy who also has magical powers but they are not always used to good ends. How Tanya navigates this topsy-turvey world making magic seem dangerous near at hand.
One Wish takes readers back to discover the magical world created by Michelle Harrison in her award-winning Thirteen Treasures series.
Having the ability to see fairies means that Tanya Fairchild's life has never been easy. After all, real fairies are nothing like the ones in books; ones that grant wishes or leave money for teeth. Real fairies don't like to be talked about and cast spells if Tanya steps out of line, and the most she's ever received in exchange for one of her teeth is a chewed up toffee. Of course, it would help if Tanya knew someone, anyone else could see them, too ...When Tanya meets Ratty, she finds not only can he see fairies, but even has a fairy friend, Turpin - she's rude and spiteful, but funny and loyal too. When Ratty goes missing, Tanya discovers her new friend has another extraordinary ability; an ability that has the potential to destroy them both.
