We are thrilled to share that Horn Book Magazine has reviewed As You Wish by Chelsea Sedoti!
What Horn Book Magazine says about As You Wish: "The town, a desolate place on the road to Area 51 where outsiders are unwelcome and almost no one ever leaves, is as much a character as the humans in the book, and Sedoti paints a vivid portrait without veering into caricature. Although Eldon, in his growing self-awareness, draws plenty of life lessons from his experiences, the book avoids a heavy-handed message and is an engrossing read, fantastical and believable at the same time. "
The full review will appear in their Janaury/February issue.

Madison is a small town in the Mojave desert on the road between nothing and nowhere. It's an unremarkable speck on the map, which is perfect for protecting the town's secret. Because in Madison, everyone can make one wish on their eighteenth birthday-and that wish always comes true.
Most of Eldon's classmates have had their wishes picked out for months, even years. Not Eldon. He's seen how wishing has hurt the people around him. His parents' marriage is strained, his sister is a virtual ghost in their house, his ex-girlfriend is dating his ex-friend...where does he even begin?
One thing is for sure: Eldon has only twenty-five days to figure it out―and the rest of his life to live with the consequences.
