Summary:

Kayla McHenry’s sweet sixteen sucks! Her dad left, her grades dropped, and her BFF is dating the boy Kayla’s secretly loved for years. Blowing out her candles, Kayla thinks: I wish my birthday wishes actually came true. Because they never freakin’ do.

Kayla wakes the next day to a life-sized, bright pink My Little Pony outside her window. Then a year’s supply of gumballs arrives. A boy named Ken with a disturbing resemblance to the doll of the same name stalks her. As the ghosts of Kayla’s wishes-past appear, they take her on a wild ride . . . but they MUST STOP. Because when she was fifteen? She wished Ben Mackenzie would kiss her. And Ben is her best friend’s boyfriend.

Review:

I’ve been looking forward to reading You Wish for a while-and not only because the main character has an awesome name. ;) The idea of getting everything you ever wished for seemed so interesting, and hilarious! This book had me guessing what the next wish might be while rolling on the floor laughing about the current wish.

Iorginally thought this novel would be a cute, fun little story that I’d read, enjoy, and promptly forget about. It was a lot more than that! It was so creative and unique, plus the overall message was wonderful. The characters were well defined and seemed to jump off the page-especially the non-human ones!

It was fun seeing what Kayla wished for at different stages of her life, and then figuring out why she would have wanted that wish at that exact moment. Some of the wishes were more of a nuisance to her than anything, like the unlimited supply of gumballs. Others were ridiculously funny, like having a life-size Ken stalking her every move.

I definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for a funny, quick read. There’s definitely more substance to it than I first thought, but it was still light-hearted. Sort of like Prada and Prejudice, also written by Mandy Hubbard. I suppose I should stop underestimating this author’s work, and I’ll definitely keep my eye out for more by her.

I give You Wish 5/5 stars. It was amazing, and definitely memorable!
