A Boy Called Hope
by Lara Williamson

I'm Dan Hope and deep inside my head I keep a list of things I want to come true.

For example, I want my sister, Ninja Grace, to go to university at the North Pole and only come back once a year.

I want to help Sherlock Holmes solve his most daring mystery yet. And if it could be a zombie mystery, all the more exciting.

I want to be the first eleven-year-old to land on the moon.

I want my dog to stop eating the planets and throwing them up on the carpet.

And finally, the biggest dream of all, I want my dad to love me.

A Boy Called Hope is a brave, bold and funny debut about family in all its shapes and sizes.

I'm really into reading books like this at the moment. I just finished reading When Mr Dog Bites by Brian Conaghan, and it was truly something special, and definitely something unique! This sounds as though it'll be in the same kind of vein (minus the Tourette's, of course), and I'm really looking forward to being able to get my hands on a copy! It's released in the UK on 1st March by Usborne.

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

'I want my dog to stop eating the planets and throwing them up on the carpet.'

Okay, I'll admit, I had to reread that sentence three times to make sure you didn't mean plants, but indeed planets. Now I'm curious.

Ninja is the most amazing never ever! I want to trade with her because Jessica is way too boring plus ninjas are awesome!
Hope you enjoy this one!
