Giveaway: What You Wish For

What You Wish For is a lovely collection of short stories, poems, and a graphic story by acclaimed authors like Francisco X. Stork, Cornelia Funke, Meg Cabot, and John Green. Each story deals with wishes–for love, family, safety, and friendship.
There were several stories I greatly enjoyed. One was called "The Great Wall" in which the protagonist falls in love with a Asian boy from the Chinese restaurant. The pair of friends go through great lengths to find out more about the boy and his family.
John Green's piece was also a nice story of love: a sad, but heartwarming tale of a boy who–despite much criticism–believe that the money he is sending overseas is helping an Indian girl.
I liked also the two stories near the end of book about family: "Rules for Wishing" by Francisco Stork that takes place in a orphanage/foster home and the graphic story by Nate Powell.
