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.

    Must Read!
    July 22, 2014

    What an amazing book! The combination of baseball, childhood cancer, and faith make for a powerful story. While the book is definitely an emotional one, I couldn't stop reading it. Aaron is an adorable little boy and completely selfless. I was encouraged by his family and the way they supported one another. And of course, seeing celebrity athletes come together on behalf of Aaron was inspiring.

    This book has a special place in my heart because of the attention it brings to childhood cancer. The author got the emotions of patients and families right on the mark. And I especially appreciated the emphasis on registering as a donor with the Bone Marrow Registry.

    And for those who need to know if the author gives readers a "happily ever after" ending ... <spoiler>the book ends on a happy note.</spoiler>

    This is a book that everyone should read. I highly recommend it! [5 stars]

    I could not put this book down.. I was not sure I would enjoy this story but I really did. It made me laugh and cry almost at the same time. I am so glad that this is not something that I have ever had to go through with my children. I received this book from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion. Do not know how this author could ever best this one but I will read more by him.

    Wish is a touching and heart warming story.Aaron is such a sweet little boy. Instead of thinking of what he wants, he thinks of what his dad wants. Make sure you grab a box of tissues before even starting on page one. It really was a quick read for me. I thought it was a great read.

    Jake Smith in his new book "Wish" published by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. takes us into the life of James McConnell.

    From the back cover: 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.

    What a mother has for her children cannot be equaled. Having said that what a father will do for his children is something to behold. Jake Smith explores the love of a father for his son in "Wish". Aaron has blood cancer and may die but when given a wish he wants for his father to play in one major league baseball game. Sounds easy doesn't it? However there is a lot of training involved to play in even just one game. Now James is faced with the training while worrying about his son. This is a marvelous story about the dynamic between James and Aaron and the deep bond they share. "Wish" is all about family. Mr. Smith has given us great characters who live and breathe on the pages and draw us into their lives so that we root for them and want them to win. "Wish" is highly emotional but a wonderful read!

    This is a very touching novel. Make sure you have your tissue ready.

    Aaron is a seven year old whose leukemia has been in remission. But now it's back. When he gets to meet a baseball player from the Detroit Tigers, Aaron has one wish - that his dad would get to play for the Tigers.

    Jim thought he might play professional baseball at one time. In college he met Emily and suddenly baseball wasn't so important. The dream lingered, however, and he now coached and played city leagues. When the Tiger organization offered to make it happen, James was torn. It would take weeks. He'd have to work his way up through the farm teams. Did he still have what it would take? Could he be away from his son for that long?

    This is a well crafted and moving novel. The characters are great. I loved that little Aaron. What a sweet and courageous boy. This is a wonderful novel of a father's love, a family's perseverance, and the miracles that can happen when you believe in the impossible.

    It is also a novel that emphasizes the work of finding donor matches for marrow transplants.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through the Book Club Network for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
