Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3-5. Eight-year-old Jenny isn't pleased about Nana's remarriage to a suitor Jenny refers to as the "Gray Man." (His suits, his hair, his eyes, and even his car are gray). Determined to break up the wedding, Jenny decides wishing on her rabbit's foot may do the job. And sure enough, on her grandmother's wedding day, Hurricane Wanda blows onto the Maine coast, causing all sorts of problems. Jenny must decide if she wants to use her last wish to undo some of the damage she has done; and when Nana and the Gray Man's car goes off the road in the storm, she must find out if she's brave enough to save them. The book's fast pacing will propel readers through the story, which, while familiar in theme, is bolstered by strong characterizations, especially that of Nana, a grandmother who is young at heart. The book's large type and attractive pencil drawings add to the book's accessibility. --Ilene Cooper"
