Wish you weren't by Sherrie Petersen

Marten doesn't believe in the power of wishes. None of his have ever come true. His parents ignore him, his little brother is a pain and his family is talking about moving to Texas. Not cool. So when he makes an impulsive wish during a meteor shower, he doesn't expect it to make any difference.

Until his annoying brother disappears.

With the present uncertain and his brother’s future in limbo, Marten finds himself stuck in his past. And if he runs out of time, even wishes might not be enough to save the ones he loves. 

I borrowed the summary from Amazon. When Marten makes a wish during a meteor shower he hasn't thought about what the consequences would be if that wish should ever come true. Someone up there has heard him though and then Marten has to do everything he can to change his wish.
I really liked this book, it was heartwarming. Wish You Weren't is a story about time travel and learning new things, about family, friendship and love and about understanding and growing up. I laughed out loud a few times, because of the funny, recognizable situations. Even though this is a book for children, this grown up has enjoyed it very much.
