From the author of the award-winning Pale Highway and the radio play Something in the Nothing comes a short fantasy of love, shyness, and the secrets of human communication.
Katie Mirowitz is a small little girl with an even smaller little voice. She possesses a deep love for her grandfather, who suffers from aphasia after a bad stroke cuts loose the part of his brain that processes verbal language. When Katie uncovers a miraculous secret inside the pages of her grandfather's old journal, as well as an ancient key, she goes out into the woods in search of answers -- hoping to uncover a mythical being that, if it exists, may just have the ability to grant wishes.

This was an amazing short story about a little girl who is brave enough to enter the woods in search of a wish to help her beloved Grandpa. The story is long enough to get the back story and is well-written. You can understand what Katie, our protagonist, is going through. She and her grandpa were close and now that he’s had a stroke she still loves him but she is sorry for him. He has lost his ability to speak. And then it seems her mother, his daughter, is having a hard time dealing with the situation as well. Katie knows that fixing her grandpa can also fix other things for her family and so she goes in search of a golem from one of her grandfather’s stories, that can grant wishes.

I loved this story. I could have probably read it in one sitting if my circumstances were different but, instead I read it in two sitting. It’s a quick read and a good story with a great message.
