E.C. Moore’s young adult novel, Every Big and Little Wish, opens in late spring 1970. Sixteen-year-old Jacy Wilbert’s Mom got promoted, so her parents sold their Victorian home in California and moved to a townhouse in Oregon.
Torn away from the only home she’s ever known, forced to leave her beloved German shepherd behind, Jacy feels misplaced. Exacerbating an already terrible situation, her dad runs off with the bombshell real estate agent who sold them their townhouse. And, just when it seems things can’t get any worse, her mom loses the stupid job they left California for in the first place and begins to drown her sorrows with pink wine, night after night. Jacy’s caught in the middle, struggling to maintain a relationship with her AWOL dad while tolerating his annoying, much-younger girlfriend.
Missing old friends back in California, and feeling like an outsider, Jacy needs to build a new social life in a new school. Not the sort of girl to wait around for what she wants to come her way, she sets her sights on Neil Wilder, the best-looking boy around.
Everything changes when Jacy Wilbert knocks on the wrong door.
I liked this book, I almost could relate to this book because my parents are divorced. The only difference is that I have an older sister and my mom didn’t drink. In fact she did everything to keep us happy. She worked all the time and yet went to every school event that we had. But enough about me, I really liked the chemistry between the characters and how E. C Moore makes them so real and like you were a kid again having all those emotions and feelings. I thought this book was well written and it never seizes to amaze me. Thank you for letting me review your book.
*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
