Join Book Club Girl, of the blog http://bookclubgirl.com as she welcomes New York Times Bestselling author Wally Lamb (She's Come Undone, I Know This Much is True and The Hour I First Believed) to discuss his newest book in paperback, Wishin' and Hopin'. In Wally Lamb’s pitch perfect new novel, it is 1964. LBJ and Lady Bird are in the White House, Meet the Beatles is on everyone’s turntable, and ten-year-old Felix Funicello (distant cousin of the iconic Annette!) is doing his best to navigate fifth grade—easier said than done when scary movies still give you nightmares and you bear a striking resemblance to a certain adorable cartoon boy. But there are several things young Felix can depend on: the birds and bees are puzzling, television is magical, and this is one Christmas he’s never going to forget.
