Three years of bad luck have passed since Dom's sister lost a valuable jade necklace on her way to Thailand

I liked the book for the most part but some of the characters were to unrealistic.

In an exciting chase to the finish, they must overcome their fear of a ghost and return a jade statue to its shrine. Readers will relish the frightful surprises Sleator provides in this credible, intelligent sequel. Lek, a neighborhood vendor, befriends Dom, and tells him that he believes the family has somehow offended the spirit in the house where they are staying. Although Lek ekes out an existence selling food from his street cart, he attributes his good luck to Duan, a deceased young woman whose spirit grants his wishes, but at someone else's expense. Dom dismisses Lek's belief as superstition until the coincidences become too strong and frequent to deny.

Here is a classic collection from one of America’s greatest authors. Winner of the National Book Award. Forty-two stories make up this magisterial collection by the writer who stands at the pinnacle of modern American fiction. Though these short stories have universal appeal, they are intensely local in setting. Compressing an epic expanse of vision into hard and wounding narratives, Faulkner’s stories evoke the intimate textures of place, the deep strata of history and legend, and all the fear, brutality, and tenderness of the human condition.

To end the bad luck that fifteen-year-old Dom and his parents have been experiencing since their arrival in Thailand, Dom and his new friend Lek search for a jade carving that must be returned to its shrine to appease an angry Thai spirit

Some people would like "Dangerous Wishes", some won't. I'm one of those who would like it. It wasn't to fast or to slow. There was more than one conflict, and very detailed. I think the best part is when they go to Lek's home village,and Glope gets mad at them. When Dom wakes up the next morning, seeing Glope's khwan staring at him, following him everywhere tring to "accidently" get him hurt or even killed. Willaim Sleator did a good job discribing everything, but I would say he did best on the khwan, and Lek. Lek has many problems in life, and Dom just makes them worse. Willaim made the khwan seem so real, and freaky. How its one goal was to hurt or even kill the person its after, wanting revenge. This is just one of the books Willaim Sleator did a great job on.

I liked the book for the most part but some of the characters were to unrealistic. My favorite part was when yhe boys saved the mad spirit from the pocket computer that she was stuck in.
The worst part of the book was when the khwan, a spirit of a body who is still alive, came out of Gope's body and went after Dom. The khwan of Gope was angry at Dom because Dom knew a secret that no one
was supposed to know.
The most vivid were Dom And lek because the author,William Sleator, told their personalities and discriptions as if he knew them personally. The most vivid conflict was when Dom offended Lek about his culture by accident.

This was the first book that I'd read by this author. It's very good, very interesting, and factual in most ways. It tells about Thailand and the lifestyle of the people who live there among the story. The story is about a boy named Dom who moves with his parents to Thailand for a while. As soon as they arrive, bad luck descends upon him and his family. Dom befriends a Thai boy named Lek who sells som-tam (a type of spicy food) in the city. The story progresses as pieces to the puzzle of what happened to Dom's sister and her jade necklace when she'd visited before, and what Lek is so mysteriously hiding are revealed. This author's very good and if you like this book, you should try another one of his. This book is part of a sequel, and that should be read as well.

A visit to Thailand seems doomed from the start. Dom and his family meet misfortunes immediately upon arriving. The car they were expecting never arrives, they are forced to ride in a hot and smelly taxi. The driver is unable to locate their house and they drive around for hours. They finally come across a Thai boy who helps them. Upon arrival, they discover that the gate is locked - another unlucky event. The boy helps them unlock it. As they enter the house, Dom's mom is hit by the chandelier. Will this misfortune continue? If so, what disasters lie ahead? An entertaining read!
