This book is about Sylvie and Jules. They are sisters but they love to argue! Their dad has given them many rules because most of the time, he is at work. There are many unsafe places in the woods by their house, such as The Slip, also known as the Whipoorwill. There are also bears and a large cat called the catamount.

Despite knowing the rules, they still break them especially because they like to collect magnificent rocks and write wishes on them; they call them wish rocks. After the wish is written on the rock, they throw it in the Whipoorwill.

Sylvie has one burning wish… to run faster. But why?

One day, Sylvie runs off to throw a rock in the Whipoorwill and falls over and goes under. She NEVER comes back up and her body was NEVER found.

While Jules mourns her sister, a fox cub is born; a kennen – a spirit and a fox in one. The fox cub has come to settle something.

But what has she come to settle?

Does Jules find out Sylvie’s burning wish and does Jules have one too?

You’ll need to read the book to find out!

I found the story a bit slow at the beginning but soon got into it. I’m glad I finished reading it as the storyline had me on the edge of my seat. I would recommend it to 10+ readers who enjoy a bit of mystery and magic.
