While cleaning out her reclusive grandfather’s house, Joplin discovers pieces of a broken platter in a cookie tin. After having the platter repaired, Joplin wishes that she could both find a friend at school, and befriend the girl pictured in the platter. The next day, Joplin befriends a boy named Barrett, and also notices a girl outside her apartment. A girl who looks remarkably like the girl in the platter…
All that to the side, I did find Joplin, Wishing to be an intriguing story. As ridiculous as the premise - a platter that grants wishes, a girl wished from the platter into reality, an immortal bad guy - it works, and anyone with an open mind might want to read far enough into it to get the full effect of the plot.
