If Wishes Were Horses is a moving, coming-of-age novel that explores the depth of friendship, the hope for redemp-tion, and the heartbreaking choices one must make in a diffi-cult, brutal world. In 1974, sixteen-year-old Star Hennessey lives with three other foster children in a broken-down central New York town. The daughter of an alcoholic prostitute, Star has relied on poetry to escape the gritty circumstances of her life. But her fantasyland is jolted when she be-comes preg-nant. Star's search for the right course of action brings her face to face with the cruel exploitation she fears is her legacy-but culminates in her personal triumph.
