Publisher's Description

James McConnell’s one wish is that his nine-year-old son will finally be healthy enough to play a game of catch. Then he and his wife, Emily, receive news they’ve dreaded: Aaron’s cancer has relapsed.

As the family steels themselves for a draining treatment regimen in yet another hospital, Aaron receives the gift of a lifetime—a personal visit from one of his favorite professional baseball players—and the chance to make a bold request, his wish: to see his dad play in one major league game.

A former college standout, James fears he doesn’t have the talent it takes, even for one game, and that he’ll miss what could be Aaron’s precious last weeks. Yet how can he refuse his dying son’s wish?

Poignant and triumphant, Wish is the story of a father’s love, a family’s perseverance, and the miracles that can happen when you believe in the impossible.

    Jake's worst nightmare came true-his son Aaron's Leukemia returned. While in the hospital for treatment Aaron had the chance to meet one of his hero's a major league baseball player. At the end of the visit Aaron whispered his wish to the man. Little did Jake know that the wish was for him. This was a powerful book about a family's love for each other going through a seemingly impossible journey.

    Jake's young son has cancer, and the boy's wish is to see his father play one baseball game for a Major League team. Former college ballplayer Jake agrees, then has to work hard to fulfill his son's wish. I thought this book was interesting, and a good story about children with cancer and what families go through.

    This review was written for Wish.
    Wish is a book to keep and re-read. It is a powerfully, emotional story of a nine year old diagnosed with a re-occurring leukemia. He makes a wish for his father that changes the whole family. It has a sports background but it does not distract from the heartaches of a family.The story will definitely show the need and effects of registering to be a donor. There is a need!

    This book has already been passed on several times and enjoyed tremendously.

    I recieved this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion
