The Wish and the Peacock (& Giveaway)

It's time for a book review by Katrina! She recently read The Wish and the Peacock by Wendy S. Swore and I thought the best way to share the book with you would be from her perspective!

Peacock Author Wendy S Swore

In this post, she'll share a brief summary of the story, what she liked about it, and where you can get the book if you (or your child) would like to read it, and a chance for one of you to win a copy!

The Story According to Katrina (No Spoilers!)

One year after her father's death, Paige is going through a tough time. She's trying to keep life balanced while helping on the family farm that her father inherited. When her mom and grandpa want to sell the farm, it's up to Paige, her friends, and a local journalist to save the farm.
With lots of crazy, creative ideas and pranks, they try to sabotage an open house and scare away the real estate agent. When that doesn't work, Paige and her friends find a way to look at the situation with creativity. That opens up some possibilities they hadn't even imagined before!

Katrina's Recommendation

I really like Paige's creativity and imagination- especially the way she comes up with things to do, to try to save the farm. For example, putting a bunch of crickets in the real estate agent's car!
I would recommend this book to my friends because it's interesting and mischievous!
