Every Big & Little Wish
by E.C. Moore.
Audience/Genre: Romance, Young Adult.
Publication: October 20th 2015 by Booktrope Publishing.
E.C. Moore’s young adult novel, Every Big and Little Wish, opens in late spring 1970. Sixteen-year-old Jacy Wilbert’s Mom got promoted, so her parents sold their Victorian home in California and moved to a townhouse in Oregon.

Torn away from the only home she’s ever known, forced to leave her beloved German shepherd behind, Jacy feels misplaced. Exacerbating an already terrible situation, her dad runs off with the bombshell real estate agent who sold them their townhouse. And, just when it seems things can’t get any worse, her mom loses the stupid job they left California for in the first place and begins to drown her sorrows with pink wine, night after night. Jacy’s caught in the middle, struggling to maintain a relationship with her AWOL dad while tolerating his annoying, much-younger girlfriend.

Missing old friends back in California, and feeling like an outsider, Jacy needs to build a new social life in a new school. Not the sort of girl to wait around for what she wants to come her way, she sets her sights on Neil Wilder, the best-looking boy around.

Everything changes when Jacy Wilbert knocks on the wrong door.

Playlist for Every Big & Little Wish, a somewhat dark coming of age novel, set in 1970....

Tom Jones is one of Jacy’s mom’s favorite performers. One thing they can agree on is how well he sings I’ll Never Fall in Love Again http://bit.ly/1UhlDpF

Jacy and her mom are surprised when Janis Joplin performs with Tom Jones on his television show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXlP7PyaHdA

One of Jacy’s all-time favorite songs, Build Me Up Buttercup by The Foundations https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iol0B-clFFM

Jacy and her friends think maybe Bridge over Troubled Water by Simon & Garfunkle is kind of corny, but it’s a huge hit anyway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wJr10bgBTQ

Read about Jacy’s favorite album of all time. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbey_Road

Jacy and Cay have fun dancing around the living room while listening to Credence Clearwater Revival’s Born on the Bayou https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAVhKjsImeI

If Jacy could listen to some of today’s music she would choose Lana Del Ray’s Dark Paradise https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmWUUPl8DD4

And I’m sure Jacy would love Coldplay’s Trouble https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHg-PhseKOQ

Original version of Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pbn6a0AFfnM

I like this version of Both Sides Now from Love Actually even better, so I thought I’d include it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coNo-CrAb4g

Jacy’s 45 copies of these two records were prized possessions: Lulu’s To Sir with Love and Janis Ian’s Society’s Child. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTapoA5RQyo


I’m sure Casper would relate to Jack White’s Love Interruption https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iErNRBTPbEc
