“Although there is plenty of history embedded in the novel, A Wish After Midnight is written with a lyrical grace that many authors of what passes for adult literature would envy.” (Paula L. Woods for The Defenders Online)
“Zetta Elliott’s time travel novel A Wish After Midnight is a bit of a revelation...It’s vivid, violent and impressive history." (Colleen Mondor for Bookslut)Genna is a fifteen-year-old girl who wants out of her tough Brooklyn neighborhood. But she gets more than she bargained for when a wish gone awry transports her back in time. Facing the perilous realities of Civil War–era Brooklyn, Genna must use all her wits to survive. In the tradition of Octavia Butler’s Kindred and Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, A Wish After Midnight is the affecting and inspiring tale of a fearless young woman’s fight to hold on to her individuality and her humanity in two different worlds.

Zetta Elliott was born and raised outside of Toronto, Canada but has lived and taught in Brooklyn for over 10 years. An educator and a writer, Elliott has published numerous works of poetry, plays, essays, and children's books, including Bird, her critically acclaimed picture book which was released in 2008. Elliott also originally released A Wish after Midnight in 2008, in response to a need for more books that spoke to the varied roots and realities of children in urban schools. She is currently working on a sequel to A Wish after Midnight.From School Library Journal:
Gr 8 Up—A speculative fiction series about a teen of Panamanian descent who time travels to Civil War—era Brooklyn with her love interest Judah. In the sequel, The Door at the Crossroads, the young people are separated and Judah struggles to stay alive during the Civil War while Genna travels to New York City during September 11. Elliott's lyrical writing, thorough research, and excellent pacing make these books a perfect fit for future fans of Octavia Butler and those who enjoyed A Wrinkle in Time.
