You Wish

by Mandy Hubbard


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.

Such a cute little book!
Don’t know about you, but I remember being very silly while making a wish for my birthdays.

  • A barbie-alike friend? Totally me!
  • A room full of chocolate and other sweets? Oh, boy.. I might still want to make this wish. Add some ice-cream and some M&Ms and please make it true 😛
  • A kiss from my crush? You bet!
  • Big boobs? Ha haa, that too!

I remember wishing for a “Saylor Moon” costume (in fact Jupiter was my favorite, so a ‘Sailor Jupiter’ costume), and a tree house (I still want that), I remember falling in love with Leonardo DiCaprio after watching Titanic and totally dreaming about him (if there was no birthday wish about him, I might have asked Santa in a letter LOL).

So what if all my birthday wishes came to life in this particular moment? Would it be fun? Well, yeah, for you watching it would probably be, for me.. ahh.. not so much!

I wish my birthday wishes actually came true. Because they never freakin’ do.

So this book is all about silly wishes (great silly wishes) and trying to get out of this situation, because when Kayla wants her wishes to come true (because they never freakin’ do!) she doesn’t have any idea that this time they really will.

I bet she wants her younger self to have been a bit smarter (not smarter, more like ‘more mature’) and make wishes about something less embarrassing – and not a pink pony, or dolls, or..
No, no, no, I won’t spoil her wishes for you.. If you need something fun to read, pick up this book and enjoy all its silliness and the next time you make a wish – be careful what you wish for, because it might come true 😉

Rating 3.5 smiles.. I mean, stars.

    You seem to be in the mood for fun books lately, right? Because this definitely looks like one of them!
    I don’t remember my wishes to be honest, but they always go like this: buy boots, meet Cristiano Ronaldo, have Cristiano Ronaldo’s love child, go to an AC Milan game, visit Greece, become a pilot, buy more boots, and yeah I want bigger boobs. What female during some part of her life not wish for bigger boobs? XD

    -thank you&come again.

      At least your wishes are trouble-less compared to mine :))
      I was suppose visit Greece this year, but I had to change my plans.. I’ll send you pictures if I get there before you do 🙂

      And yeah, I’ve been in a ‘not-so-great’ kind of mood last week, but now that I’m out of it (thanks to this funny stories) I have no time at all for any kind of books. I’m trying to finish “Feed” by Mira Grant and start “Hunting Lila” by Sarah Alderson but I don’t know when I’ll get the chance to do that.

        Really? thats sucks, how come on?
        I have been to greece before and that’s why I’m so determined to go back, it is in a few words ‘heaven on earth’♥
        S.O B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L♥
        it’s unreal♥
        it’s magical♥

        everyone should visit before they die♥ I would love to see those pictures when you go though! maybe I’ll show you mine (you have to suffer me as kid with an ugly hair cut though XD) my honey moon is going to be there! with or without my hubby;D

        well, that’s the magic of reading for you! who can resist a good carefree read? insane people I tell you! Feed definitely looks creepy and I have all my fingers crossed for you that you enjoy Hunting Lila because I had high hopes for that baby.

        -thank you&come again.
