Sometimes happily ever after is only a wish away . . . There's a wishing tree in Irish Falls. The bits of paper tied to its gnarled branches hold the hopes and dreams of everyone in town . . . except Annie Quinn. Single mom Annie has spent years rebuilding her life and trying not to have regrets. After giving up her dream of music stardom, she returned to her Adirondack hometown--and convinced herself she's content with a simpler life. The last thing she needs is a man to remind her of the heartbreak she left behind. A divorced dad, Seth Taggart used to be a successful LA songwriter. But now his reputation is in tatters, he's burnt-out, and estranged from his adult son. Inheriting a small-town radio station just might be the do-over he needs. Although he always planned to go back to LA, when working with Annie turns into sharing music and more, Seth realizes second chances--and home--are where he least expects.

Gina was always daddy's little princess, and her dad was always her favorite guy on the planet. Then Gina turns fifteen and a transformation happens; Gina discovers boys. One boy in particular: Joey Mancini. Gina likes Joey, and Joey likes Gina. There's just one problem; Gina's not allowed to date until she's sixteen. Instead of waiting four months for her sixteenth birthday, Gina and eighteen year old Joey begin dating undercover. When Gina's father discovers their plot, he grounds Gina and tells her that she will never be allowed to see Joey again. When Gina responds with the silent treatment, her father tries everything to get his little girl to talk to him again. When all else fails, her dad makes a last ditch effort, and takes Gina on a daddy-daughter bonding trip to China. Gina flies 10,000 miles carrying feelings of anger and resentment until she drops them at the Hong Kong Wishing Tree. She makes three wishes that will give her everything she thinks she needs to make her life perfect. First she wishes that she can drive. Second, she makes a wish to date older guys, so she can date Joey. Finally, third, she makes a wish that her father isn't her father anymore. Even though all of her wishes are granted, they are granted in ways very different from what Gina has intended. Instead of cruising down the highway in her own brand new cherry red Mustang convertible, she now drives a thirteen ton, forty foot long bus, as she is now in the body of the twenty-four year old school bus driver/army reservist named Mo. While she is in an older body, and has the freedom to date, her second wish to date older guys turns out to be more like a curse; she can only attract guys over thirty. Still having her fifteen year old mind, she thinks this is gross. Wishing her father away doesn't turn out exactly as planned either. While he isn't her father in this new parallel reality, he still manages to have some control over her; he is now her boss! While Gina first enjoys her newfound freedom, the novelty quickly fades. Getting hit on by "old guys", not being able to see Joey, and getting five hundred dollars in fines all take a toll. Now that Gina wished herself into this new life, her only mission is to get out of it, get home, and most importantly, get her dad back.

Unlock the more straightforward side of The Wishing Tree with this concise and insightful summary and analysis! This engaging summary presents an analysis of The Wishing Tree by William Faulkner, a fairy tale-like novel for children in which a young girl and her friends follow a strange redhead boy on a quest for a tree that fulfills wishes. They have all sorts of wondrous adventures and learn a valuable life lesson, before the young girl wakes up in her bed and realizes it was all a dream. Faulkner was an influential American writer during the 20th century and his works earned him a Nobel Prize in Literature and a Pulitizer Prize for Fiction. Nonetheless, Faulkner detested the fame and glory that came along with his recognition, instead wanting to simply write because it was his passion, rather than in order to earn money and renown. While The Wishing Tree is perhaps not his most well-known novel, it is certainly a heart-warming and enjoyable read for children and adults alike.
