wishing for you cover

She’s a girl who can’t remember. He’s the guy she can’t forget.

It’s her final semester of high school, and Kimberley Rey is curious about what will come next. She needs to pick a college, but her memory disability complicates the choice. Will her struggles to remember make it impossible to leave home?

Help arrives through an unexpected and supernatural gift. Grant is a “genie” with rules. He can give her thirty wishes (one per day for a month) as long as the tasks are humanly possible. Kimberley knows just what to ask for—lessons in how to live on her own.

But her wishes change when a friend receives a devastating diagnosis. As she joins forces with Grant to help her friend, Kimberley learns that the ability to live in the moment—to forget—may be more valuable than she ever knew.

I Wish

What she needs is a miracle. What she gets is a genie with rules.

framed by autumn leaves, a boy in jeans and sneakers stands beside girl in long skirt and slippers; couple is visible from knees downLacey Linden has gotten good at hiding the truth of her life—a depressed mom, a crumbling house, and bills too big to pay. In school, she’s a girl with a ready smile and good grades, but at night, Lacey spends her time dreaming up ways to save her family. On a get-cash-quick trip to the flea market, Lacey stumbles over a music box that seemingly begs her to take it home. She does, only to find that it’s inhabited by a gorgeous “genie.” He offers her a month of wishes, one per day, but there’s a catch. Each wish must be humanly possible.

Grant belongs to a league of supernatural beings, dedicated to serving humans in need. After two years of fulfilling conventional wishes, he’s one assignment away from promotion to a new job with more challenging cases. His month with Lacey is exactly what he expects and nothing like he imagines. Lacey and Grant soon discover that the hardest task of all might be saying goodbye.

Review

This was my first Elizabeth Langston novel and I absolutely loved it. Her writing style is fantastic and I was gripped right from the start. Right from the beginning of the very first page, the wonderful writing and the fantastical characters and storyline completely grabbed me and I could not put the book down. It was just so amazing…

I Wish is without a doubt one of the most unique and different YA Paranormal books I have ever read. It was incredible. A story about a genie which also hinged on the lead protagonist learning what is really important makes this book a must-read. Lacey goes through such a journey in this book. Her personal growth is absolutely stunning and incredible and it makes this book just such a joy to read and go on this personal discovery with Lacey. I loved it.

I Wish is a fantastic storyline, with a dash of romance that is perfect for any YA fan. I can’t recommend it enough. It was utterly fantastic and I loved every single moment of it. A must-read.

This is definitely one of the most beautiful and amazingly written books I’ve ever read. Elizabeth Langston has written a fantastic story that drew me in from the first page.

(Sharrice Hewlett Reese’s Reviews blog)

From School Library Journal (Dec 2014): “… Langston wisely limits the power of wishes, so there can be no easy fixes to complex problems. Lacey cannot simply wish away her debt or her mother’s trauma. This allows the story to remain grounded in the everyday struggles and relationships of Lacey, her friends, and her family. It is all the better for it, putting the focus on the compelling and sympathetic characters.”
