OVERVIEW (FROM AMAZON)
This is a story of four compassionate and aspirant teenagers,’ Yuna Lee, Joben Saito, Alec Burley and Amporn Srisai who decide to travel for two weeks to four countries in Southeast Asia.

Each of them feels the gravity of reality during their twelfth grade requirements. Is taking a break before University a good Idea? Was their location right? Could they adjust? What do they learn? Each country picked randomly is just like craving for a boon from a wish well, which may or may not be fulfilled. Dive into a thought and make a wish. Which destination you choose is a secret that promises you a miraculous experience.
I found that THE WISHER'S WELL was a good read. It takes me back to some of my younger days. The book was an adventure and the teenagers were so full of life. Four teenagers travel to four countries in Southeast Asia. This part I liked a lot. The teenagers never knew where they were going. Each of them makes a wish. I found that each country brought a different story to each teenager. They discover so many wonderful things on this adventure.I found that this was a journey for me too.As the teenagers went to the different countries, their reactions brought a smile to my face. I felt that this was a good journey to make before going to the University. This was a wonderful story of youth and innocence. I would recommend this book o anyone, young and young at heart. Pick up a copy and follow the youth on their journey and adventures. Everyone should experience a little of the adventure the teenagers experienced. Wonderful.
I would give this book 4 STARS.
I received a complimentary copy of THE WISHER'S WELL from the author for this unbiased review.
