What if you could ask for anything- and get it?
In the sandy Mojave Desert, Madison is a small town on the road between nothing and nowhere. But Eldon wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, because in Madison, everyone gets one wish—and that wish always comes true.
Some people wish for money, some people wish for love, but Eldon has seen how wishes have broken the people around him. And with the lives of his family and friends in chaos, he’s left with more questions than answers. Can he make their lives better? How can he be happy if the people around him aren’t? And what hope is there for any of them if happiness isn’t an achievable dream? Doubts build, leading Eldon to a more outlandish and scary thought: maybe you can’t wish for happiness…maybe, just maybe, you have to make it for yourself
Madison is not a place people stop unless they are getting gas. And no one encourages stopping either. Something isn’t quite normal here.
Eldon isn’t sure he wants to make a wish. He’s seen how some turn out and it isn’t all good.
This was an interesting book. Full of the normal teen aged angst, but also a deeper theme of taking shortcuts through life and what we want at 17 is probably not what we want at 25.
About how our wants or wishes can and do affect other people’s lives. I am still not sure if I liked the end or not.
