PODCAST | A Wish in the Dark

In this episode of the Story Matters podcast, I sit down with my 11-year-old daughter, Sophia, to discuss Christina Soontornvat’s A Wish in the Dark. While this book was required reading for her middle-school English class, we definitely didn’t regret it! A Wish in the Dark is set in an alternate-history, Asian-inspired world, with only subtle references to magic. While meant for young readers, the story can be enjoyed by just about anyone at any age, as it deals with universal themes of crime, poverty, and politics, as seen through the lens of its child protagonists. It’s a definite must-read for any young reader who loves an engaging story and uplifting characters.
