If Wishes Were Unicorns (#OpenNovellaContest...
Jake's little brother, Ben, is battling leukemia and he has one wish. He wants to see a unicorn. And he wants Jake to find it for him.
Ben has been obsessed with unicorns ever since he "saw one" in a forest one day. He says Jake was there, but Jake doesn't remember anything. He knows that unicorns don't exist.
But the longer he reads his brother's diary, filled with descriptions that are too realistic to have been imagined, and hangs out with his new friend Drew, who fervently believes in all forms of magic, the more he begins to question his doubts and the more his brother's health seems to be linked with finding a unicorn. Could unicorns exist? Can he find one in time?
