Every Big and Little Wish, E.C. Moore’s young adult novel, opens in late spring 1970. Sixteen-year-old Jacy Wilbert’s Mom got promoted, so her parents sold their Victorian home in California and moved to a townhouse in Oregon.
Torn away from the only home she’s ever known and forced to leave her beloved German shepherd behind, Jacy now feels misplaced. Exacerbating an already terrible situation, her dad runs off with the bombshell real estate agent who sold them their townhouse. And, just when it seems things can’t get any worse, her mom loses the stupid job they left California for in the first place. As her mother drowns her sorrows with pink wine night after night, Jacy’s caught in the middle, struggling to maintain a relationship with her AWOL dad while tolerating his annoying, much-younger girlfriend.
Missing old friends back in California, and feeling like an outsider, Jacy needs to build a new social life in a new school. Not the sort of girl to wait around for what she wants to come her way, she sets her sights on Neil Wilder, the best-looking boy around.
Everything changes when Jacy Wilbert knocks on the wrong door.
“What a fun book to read!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Susan Watts
What a fun book to read! This story took me back to my days as a teenager in Portland Oregon in the 1970’s. No cell phones, no computers, just real relationships. E. C. Moore captured what it was like to be a teenager at that time perfectly. The characters are rich and full and quirky. The story pulls you along and you don’t want to put it down. It is not only a teen story, but a really good mystery and suspenseful. I highly recommend this book to anyone who just wants to get lost in a good story.
