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 don't even know where to start. All I know is that I LOVED this book so much that I feel like reading it all over again. The moment I started reading this book I knew I wouldn't stop until I get it over with and that is exactly what happened. You Wish touches on friendships, first love, families and growing up while still remaining true to yourself. One thing I loved is that Kayla has problems and is a pessimist at heart but she never whines and is always willing to learn.
I found myself in a fit of giggles sooo many times. Ken buying his muscle milk at the health food store, kissing his biceps and buying tank tops in every color... Ann having a Cinnabon roll for the first time… the pony walking into the middle of a motocross event...I could go on and on. I completely ADORED Raggedy Ann. She was so hilarious.
All of the wishes and the characters were perfect. There was never a dull moment. It was really interesting to see how Kayla handled her past birthday wishes. Overall, I can’t recommend You Wish enough! It is the perfect girly read. It has an unforgettable premise and amazing writing.
