REVIEW: A Wish in the Dark

A Wish in the Dark

Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction finalist A Wish in the Dark by Christina Soontornvat is the subject of today’s featured blogger review:

This says on the cover that it’s a reimagining of Les Miserables. It’s not a blow-by-blow recreation, but we do have the two central characters, one who has broken the law for understandable reasons, and one who believes that there is no good reason for breaking the law, as well as the look at inequality and the way that law can uphold it.
