Wish
by Joseph Monninger

Summary:  Bee's little brother Tommy has cystic fibrosis.  Through a charity, he is getting his biggest wish: to dive with the great white sharks.  Bee is determined to make the trip perfect for Tommy, but she may end up having some of her wishes granted, too, on this special trip.  

Thoughts:  There was a lot to like in this novel: realistic characters, lovely coastal setting, unique plot, fascinating shark facts.  But, what I liked the most was Tommy.  He is an amazing character, someone you wish you knew.  The way he lives his challenging life is inspiring; the story of his fascination with great whites and this chance to have his greatest wish granted is one readers will not soon forget.  The story of Bee, Tommy's protective, loving sister, and the way she is affected by this trip is also a touching adventure.
