Things get even stranger when Vicky, a non-swimmer, falls into the now-finished pool and discovers that her greatest secret wish has been granted—she can swim! As the ring gets passed around and wishes are made, a wild series of talents and circumstances threaten to turn their lives upside down…forever. But Jasmine, a fairy of the woods, has an idea, and if everyone cooperates, she just might be able to put an end to the shenanigans and return their lives to normal.
Wildly original and full of vibrant, chaotic imagination, Secrets of the Magic Ring is proof of the old adage, “Be careful what you wish for.”
* from Goodreads
Secrets of the Magic Ring is an interesting but fun middle grade read. The characters are well developed and the plot captivating.
However, I didn’t love this book. Cute though it was I had several issues. First, I didn’t like that Paul deliberately disobeyed, lied to, and misled his parents. I’m not naive about the truthfulness of this but the lack of remorse is bothersome. Second, and more importantly, Paul is besieged by a bully and refuses to confide in his parents.
