    1. One Wish is a new prequel story for Michelle Harrison's Thirteen Treasures series so it's ideal for fans of the series or anyone who is new to this author. This whole series has been incredibly fun to read and One Wish is no exception to that, it has all the magic and wonder you could hope for from a fairytale and is full of great characters and fun adventures.Tanya is a young girl with the second sight which allows her to see the fairies and other fae creatures. This rare ability often gets her [...]

    2. This book was alright. It was bit intriguing, but it wasn't like I had to read it. Something I really did like was how the story was rounded up. It was like the prologue started and ended the book ( in a good way)

    3. Five years ago, Moontrug’s mum gave her a book to read, saying ‘Apparently kids are raving about this one; it’s got bad-tempered fairies in it so you’re bound to love it.’ And sure enough, in Michelle Harrison’s 13 Treasures, Moontrug discovered a world of sinister fairies seen only by humans with the second sight – and she was hooked. Because the fairies weren’t flittering Tinkerbells who sprinkle flying dust over innocent children, but petulant sprites who use devilish glamour [...]

    4. Why did I pick it up?When I was asked to feature ONE WISH on my blog, I immediately said yes. Middle Grade aside, I love a good Fey book; and it's been some time since I have picked one up! Plus, her name is Tanya! hahaDescribe the book in 5 wordsUplifting. Magical. Funny. Smart. Witty.Who was your favorite character, and why?Tanya of course. She is going through a lot and adding to the confusion and stress of the second sight, with no friends I might add, it tough for anyone. But she is strong. [...]

    5. One Wish is a prequel of The 13 Treasures series which follows Tanya Fairchild who has the second sight. Which means she can see fey. The 13 Treasures were, in my opinion, very good books but One Wish disappointed greatly. I found it very hard to get into and I failed to properly connect with the characters, apart from Turpin - Ratty's guardian fairy. I also found that Michelle Harrison's descriptive skills have gone down. I found it difficult to create a picture in ny head of the characters and [...]

    6. Some people might think that stories about fairies are childish and silly and possibly inconsequential. Not so, the fey of Michelle Harrisons 13 Treasures books. They are dark and scary, tricksy and all too real. With Michelle's last book, Unrest, it looked like she was turning her back on her younger readers for something that was sheer terror to the bravest of adults and all the more brilliant for it. So when it was announced that her next book was to be a return to the 13 Treasures world 'for [...]

    7. Tanya is special. She has the second sight and has seen fairies her whole life - even if sometimes she'd rather have not, nasty and tricky as often they are. She, her mother and their dog Oberon, go to stay in Spinney Wicket, a little town by the seaside, to get away from the city and stress of Tanya's parents separating. Spinney Wicket, home to a fantastical castle and a magical wishing tree, is more than it seems. It is there that Tanya meets the strange boy Ratty and his fairy companion Turpi [...]

    8. Wow, this was such an amazing book! It was funny, full of wonderful descriptions and the characters were all brilliant. Turpin was a personal favourite, she reminded me a bit of Tinkerbell - a mischievous little madame, but intent on protecting Ratty much like Tinkerbell protected Peter Pan. Throughout the book there were ideas that reminded me of classic stories I had read when I was younger such as The Magic Faraway Tree and Five Children and It and I think Michelle Harrison has taken some of [...]

    9. This exciting prequel to the 13 Secrets trilogy provides a look at Tanya's first encounter with others who have her same ability to see fairies. Although Tanya has always been able to see them, she has little understanding of the fairy world and why four fairies are constantly tormenting her. While on vacation with her mother at the seaside town of Spinney Wicket, she encounters a Wishing Tree. Tanya can see the and hear the sprite inside the tree, which doesn't surprise her. What does surprise [...]

    10. "One Wish" by Michelle Harrison is an amazing book. I loved it! It talks about a girl and she has the gift of the second sight. She can see anything in the magical/fairy world. She goes to take a walk and meets a boy that has the same gift. They become friends but the boy decides that he has to take her memory away. The girl finds out and realizes that the boy is a memory sweeper. Then, an evil person kidnaps the boy and the girl is the only one who can save him. She meets the boys dad and they [...]

    11. My 10-yr-old daughter read this and nagged me to do so immediately after. She loved it! I didn't love it the way she did, but I liked it, and can see why she enjoyed it. We have a good, go-getting heroine and a straightforward but diverse magic world. For the low-ish reading level, the action is really well-done and the character development respectable. The tone is dark enough to be interesting, but not too scary for its intended age group. This was a fun little diversion for an adult reader wh [...]

    12. As a semi-prequel goes (although, let's be honest, calling something .5 in a series is just weird) this isn't bad. Tanya, Ratty and Turpin are fun and well-drawn, but the adults are less so - problematic with the role Bob plays in this book. There's also some unevenness in the way the various types of fey and locations are depicted: some are described well and given personality, while others are given a few quick strokes and we're expected to guess the rest. I did love the Wishing Tree and wish [...]

    13. In the beggining it was meh But the further you got into the book, the more intriguing it got. I must admit that in the end i was hooked.

    14. Iets minder leuk dan de trilogie, maar zeker ook het lezen waard :)Dit verhaal gaat over Tanya, die met haar moeder op vakantie is. Dit speelt zich af voor 13 begint, dit merk je aan dat Tanya nog vrijwel niets over fey folk weet, of hoe je jezelf er tegen beschermt.Ze vindt in dat stadje een boom, de wishing tree, die iedereen één wens laat doen. Ze ontmoet hier Ratty, die zijn wens heeft laten vallen, en dus gaat zij hem zoeken om hem zijn wensfles terug te geven zodat hij zijn wens kan doen [...]

    15. A fun, but sometimes scary book to read to or with your kids. Tanya is a girl who can see fairies. She thinks she is isolated in this ability and her mother is getting frustrated with her "lies". She meets while on holiday a boy who can also see fairies. The boy is in trouble and Tanya resolves to help him.

    16. 2.6 Good book a bit disappointing though on found the reveal / plot twist anticlimactic and the ending sad though perfectly put together I thought there was too much faffing around in the beginning and not enough of the juicy bits

    17. An incredible prequel to the Thirteen Treasures. I honestly am going to miss this book set, I’ll miss Tanya! I feel like I made a friend though all these books and I was on all the adventures with her.

    18. I listened to this one because I wanted to listen to something read by Jane Entwistle and it looked interesting, and it definitely exceeded by expectations. It is the prequel to a series that I'm going to read to my kids. I'm sure they'll love it!

    19. What a delightful book! I enjoyed listening to this on CD and loved the characters. I am excited to see that there is a series of these books and I can read more about Tanya!

    20. This book is a prequel(ish) for the series. However, I feel like you can easily read this as a standalone. You can read this when you read the series, or if you just want to read this one as it is or if you want to start the series. All are possibilities.The book is about Tanya, and dear Lord, in the beginning I didn't like Tanya, her attitude is just horrendous. I can slightly understand why, considering the bad stuff the fairies do to her, but on the other hand I also see that she could have d [...]

    21. Book Description:Tanya Fairchild has been able to see fairies as long as she can remember. But these fairies are nothing like the ones in storybooks; they're vicious and always punish Tanya when they think she's stepped out of line. When her mother takes her on holiday in the small beach town of Spinney Wicket, Tanya may finally get some respite from both her fairy tormentors and the concern of her parents' divorce.But soon she discovers a magical wishing tree and meets Ratty who, like her, can [...]

    22. See full review @ The Indigo QuillI received this book in exchange for an honest review. In One Wish, we travel to the land of Spinney Wicket (I love that name!) with Tanya and her trusty companion, Oberon (her dog). Tanya has been tormented by fairies her whole life. Not the cute, glowing kind that yell "Hey! Listen!" when in peril, but little mischief makers with hairy toes that sew all the openings to her clothes shut and change the answers on your homework. She has never met anyone with this [...]

    23. N.B. This seems to be a prequel to the 13 Treasures (13 Curses, 13 Secrets) series. I'm still a little confused about this. Tanya's story seemed very familiar, but the setting seemed different. Tanya moves into a house for the summer with her mother, but it is infested with very nasty fairies who want her gone. While Tanya is out in town, she meets a boy named Ratty who has a fairy companion named Turpin, and she follows him back to his home in a trailer by a run down castle to find out more bou [...]

    24. If you could have one wish granted to you, what would it be? Would it be a selfish wish? Would it be something for a friend? Would it be a silly wish? Would it be a sensible wish? This book is book 0.5 in the Thirteen Treasures series. It gives the reader insight in Tanya's background with the fairies. They were always getting her into trouble with her parents. They had so many rules and expected her to follow them, even if she didn't know the rules. Tanya finds the Spinney Wicket Wishing Tree a [...]

    25. Name: Sami B.Class: 7 RedPages: 384Review: Extra One Wish byMichelle Harrison is an imaginative, whimsical, and actually quite relatable story about a girl, a boy, a few fairies, and a memory that could destroy the world if it is recovered. This book is amazing in a number of ways, including:- The mystery interwoven throughout it- The suspense!!!- The way that it breaks stereotypes in a thoughtful wayI loved the description and details in this book, and I hope that you take the time to read it.

    26. The story of "One Wish" was very exciting. One of the main things featured in the story was fairies. In my opinion it had a good plot, although it wasn't a book that I was super excited to read, more of a book I wanted to finish as soon as possible. The story doesn't really revolve around a wish, more about spells, magic, and mystery. Turpin was one of my favorite characters in the book since she was very funny, my least favorite was Don, he didn't seem very interesting to me. I was actually ver [...]

    27. Thanks to Netgalley for this free galley!“One Wish” is the prequel to Harrisson’s Thirteen Treasures series and follows Tanya on her adventure in Spinney Wickett where she meets the mysterious Ratty who takes her on a dangerous (yet exciting!) journey.At first, I really did not think this book was my cup of tea, and quite frankly, it still isn’t the sort of book I would purposely go into a bookstore for, especially as this book is aimed at younger readers. However, I loved Harrisson’s [...]
