About the Book: Olivia's twin sister Violet died seven months ago. Violet was the outgoing one, the sister everyone loved and without her Olivia is fading into the background. Her family has moved to San Francisco and Olivia feels lost without her sister to guide her. When a magical gown shows up at Olivia's door and Olivia wishes her sister back, she suddenly finds Violet (or at least her ghost) by her side.
With Violet back, Olivia feels like she can live again. The girls get two more dresses and two more wishes. If you could wish for anything, what would you wish for?
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I though Wish was a cute novel. It might not be the most literary novel or the deepest, but it's cute and sweet and that's ok with me.
I really liked Olivia. I was happy to see a character who was shy and not immediately popular at school. She was struggling to move on after her sister's death and dealing with her family's withdrawl and her emotions were believable. I felt for her and wanted to reach through the pages and hug her and be her friend.
I also enjoyed the supporting cast of characters, especially Bowie, who is incredibly spunky and funny-I'd love to meet her! And I liked how even though Calla is the popular beautiful girl, you don't hate her and she's not a mean girl.
There's a good mix of romance, friendship and a touch of fantasy. It took a few chapters for the story to really get moving, but once it did, I really enjoyed this one. It's the perfect book to curl up and read-it's a warm fuzzy, sweet book that is full of magic.
