Joplin, Wishing by Diane Stanley is a beautifully written novel that combines a twelve-year-old genie, a typewriter, a Dutch platter, and a fantastic plot line with loveable characters. It all starts out when Joplin’s grandfather, Martin J. Camrath, passes a way. He was an extraordinary author, but after Joplin’s mother comes back from her old house to gather up her things, she is in a state of depression. Joplin herself takes an antique but broken Dutch platter . . . the next morning, she sees the very same girl she saw on the platter outside her home!
