Wished Away
YA urban fantasy

Maire Keating returns home for Thanksgiving break only to discover her father has disappeared. Could his abusive life finally caught up to him? During her days off from school Maire also reconnects with childhood friend Colton. Through him, she discovers a secret world involving ghosts, a ship, and the guilty answering for their transgressions. Could a local city urban legend actually have some truth? Maire has to decide if she has the strength to find out. 



"Nine authors and nine very different tales of the paranormal–that’s what you get in this spooky anthology! I love how anthologies let you get so many different short tales; even though there’s a similar paranormal theme, it’s fun to see read how widely different each tale is. I liked all the stories although a few more than others and the tales individually range from a 3 out of 5 to a 5 out of 5 for me. I’m recommending this to those who enjoy reading about the paranormal in short bursts! Overall, this anthology is a 4 out of 5 for me!

“Wished Away”–horror, ghosts, romance, college girl returning home to abusive household and getting a welcome surprise (one of my favorites in the anthology)."
