This summer tale about a preteen girl is filled with mystery, friendship and learning opportunities. Ashley's best friend, Lucy, is moving away at the end of the summer. Instead of spending the whole summer at camp together, Ashley is committed to helping babysit seven-year-old Claire for a month first. Claire has a list of things she wants to do and Ashley is not thrilled about them at first. Meanwhile Ashley discovers a jar filled with wishes in her basement. As she reads the wishes one at a time she is transported to the past. Who are the girls she is seeing? Why does one of the businesses she sees in one of those episode also in a slide that she sees a friend is adding to an anniversary slide show? Why is Peter at the VS Depot always want to talk about the book Ashley is reading? All of these plot threads are drawn together neatly by Harper by the end and the reader finds themselves a bit misty-eyed. Highly recommended. Would make a great read aloud.

It was pretty mysterious and sad at the same time.

Dreamer Wisher Liar is full of secrets and surprises. The book is one big puzzle that slowly falls together towards the end. I recommend this book to dreamers, wishers, and even liars.
