Summary

SPECIAL PREVIEW! Is Georgia’s mind playing tricks on her, or is the entire town walking into the arms of a killer who has everyone but her fooled?   When seventeen-year-old Georgia’s brother drowns while surfing halfway around the world in Australia, she refuses to believe Lucky’s death was just bad luck. Lucky was smart. He wouldn’t have surfed in waters more dangerous than he could handle. Then a stranger named Fin arrives in False Bay, claiming to have been Lucky’s best friend. Soon Fin is working for Lucky’s father, charming Lucky’s mother, dating his girlfriend. Georgia begins to wonder: did Fin murder Lucky in order to take over his whole life?   Determined to clear the fog from her mind in order to uncover the truth about Lucky’s death, Georgia secretly stops taking the medication that keeps away the voices in her head. Georgia is certain she’s getting closer and closer to the truth about Fin, but as she does, her mental state becomes more and more precarious, and no one seems to trust what she’s saying. As the chilling narrative unfolds, the reader must decide whether Georgia’s descent into madness is causing her to see things that don’t exist–or to see a deadly truth that no one else can.  “A remarkable page-turner . . . Keep[s] readers wondering, twist by twist, if Georgia’s universe will simply burst apart.” —Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle

    The Art of Wishful Thinking is an allegorical fable in verse, depicting the human mind's journey to self-discovery.
    A spirit "Mind" about to leave the Earth hears a plea to stay, to help other Minds along the pathway to self-belief and self-discovery. The Minds are beset by fear or ego, unable to change their thinking or their lives. A series of challenges await, including fear and self-doubt.
    "Guides" help them confront imbalances in their lives and point towards the natural remedial powers of trees and plants. The Minds question whether they have been true to themselves in their lives. Some still doubt their ability to change and they face a further test when lured into self-pity by a false and evil Guide.
    A battle for the Minds ensues but natural remedies help them rid themselves of depression and trauma. They learn to be free of others' expectations, and that their choices must be true to their own nature.
    When the Guides leave, the Minds must decide whether they have achieved the security of self-belief.
