Charlie feels like she's always coming in last. Between her Mom's new job and her sister's life away at college, everything else seems more important than Charlie's upcoming Irish dance competition, her science project, or how much she misses her sister. One day, while icefishing, Charlie makes a discovery that changes everything. A strange fish offers to grant her a wish in exchange for its freedom. Charlie can't believe her luck - but soon realizes that this fish has an odd way of granting wishes, as even her best intentions go awry. When her family faces the challenge of her older sister's heroin addiction, Charlie wonders if some things might be too important to risk on a wish fish.  (Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award, 2018)
