Think about it, Guy Wire. Every year you’re supposed to make a wish, and the deal is, if you get all the candles out in one blow it’ll come true. I just can’t, I said. The reason you can’t tell me is because it’s not true. Just admit it, Guy Wire. No, I swear, once I really did get what I wished for. I just don’t want to tell you what it was, that’s all.
I’m not sure it’s really you, she said reluctantly. I don’t care, I said. I’m not doing it for me, I’m doing it for Fennimore one. That’s awfully nice of you, honeybunch. You must really care about him, huh?. When I’d first laid eyes on him, I’d been completely convinced that he and I would never be friends, but now I was ready to cut off all my hair just to make him feel better.

About book: Guy Wire was actually much more amusing and more thoughtful than I expected. Guy's best friend Buzz gets his by a car in the first chapter. While Guy and his readers sit around the hospital wondering if he will make it we learn about the rocky beginning to a fast friendship. A bad haircut, a crazy mom, shrubbery costumes, birthday wishes and rice cakes are the catalysts in this surprisingly sweet friend story.
Grade 3-6-Guy Wire features the same characters as the three previous books. Weeks frames their earlier exploits with a bike accident that happens just before Buzz's 14th birthday. As Guy sits in the hospital waiting room hoping for the best and fearing the worst, he flashes back to when he and his friend first met in second grade. Buzz is not popular when he moves to the neighborhood. Sarah Weeks has a real talent to tell a story.
