For Indigo Stevens, ballet classes at Miss Roberta’s ballet studio offer the stability and structure that are missing from her crazy home life. At almost 16, she hopes this is the year she will be accepted into the New York School of Ballet. First she must prove she’s ready, and that means ignoring Jesse Sanders – the cute boy with dimples who is definitely at the top of Miss Roberta’s List of Forbidden Things for Dancers.
But Jesse is the least of Indigo’s concerns. When she discovers her mom is an alcoholic, it simultaneously explains everything and heaps more worry on Indigo’s shoulders. As her mom’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic, Indigo fights to maintain balance, protect her younger brothers from abuse, and keep her mother from going over the edge. When the violence at home escalates, Indigo realizes she can no longer dance around the issue. At the risk of losing everything, she must take matters into her own hands before it’s too late.

Review
Wish is the story of Indigo and her dream to dance professionally. She hopes this will be the year that she gets accepted to the New York School of Ballet. That means hours of practice to prove she is ready. Add on top of that her mother’s constant yelling and trying to stay away from a boy she really likes and this is a stressful time to say the least. Indigo must take things into her own hands if she wants to live her dream.
I love anything dance related so when I first saw the cover for Wish, I knew I wanted to read it. Ballet is difficult and Grier Cooper describes the moves in such detail that you can picture what it would feel like to perform them. I love Indigo and look forward to more of her story.
