    One thought on “Wishful Thinkers”

    1. Ok, so I wrote it, I had to give it a good rating. Honestly, I wanted to include some of my philosophy on life in the book, not just tell a story. Hopefully, you find it touching or moving. I honestly think it would be perfect for any middle school student, especially those who have lost a loved-one and who are coming to terms with a death in their family. Please read it and rate it yourself. Thanks!
