Wishing for You (I Wish Book 2)

Wishing for You

Kimberley fought and beat cancer when she was a child, but as a teenager she struggles with the side effect of the chemo and the cancer; she has short term memory loss. Every day she is constantly recording conversations, marking notes in her iPad, and relies heavily on her mother. She is 18 and in her senior year in high school and the thought of going to any college scares her; she isn’t ready to face the world of the unknown. Kimberley is content to just take one day at a time and hang out with her best friends Lacey and Sean. Lacey had other plans for her, Lacey gives Kimberley the gift of having a genie, and it’s no ordinary genie, its Lacey’s ex-genie and ex-boyfriend, Grant.

With Grant helping her Kimberley is finding that she can find freedom and be independent. Kimberley is a very special young woman and finds that she is most happy when she’s able to help others, even to the point of giving her wishes away. When Kimberley learns horrible news about one of her best friends, she finds that she may have more strength and abilities than she ever gave herself credit for.

Wishing for you is a beautiful story about a young woman learning to have faith in herself and learning to rise above her disabilities. With the help of a caring genie and patient friends, Kimberley matures into a woman ready to take on the world. Grant’s story also begins to take its own direction and makes the reader hope that there may be something in store for him and Camarin, Sean’s special friend. The writing is smooth and just flows. It’s so easy to read and follow the story line. Sometimes as a mother of four it is hard for me to stay focused, especially if the book is not written as well, I never once had a problem putting the book down and starting right back up without a hitch. I loved the characters and liked how the book transitioned smoothly from I Wish to Wishing for You. It is the second book in the series and you could read it alone; however it gives a better insight into the characters if you were to read the first book first.

I received a free ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Lacey Linden is smart, talented, dedicated, and a protective big sister. Lacey is trying to finish out her senior year early so that she can work full time to support her grieving widowed mother and her young brother. Her mother has checked out of reality, and is drowning deep in depression so it is up to Lacey to put food on the table, pay the bills, and keep Henry safe and away from foster care. It’s not an easy task, and Lacey refuses to ask for help, she will do whatever it takes to keep their family together. While selling items at the local flee market for some much needed cash, Lacey stumbles across a beautiful music box that seems to call her name; the owner throws the magic box into the trade. When she arrives home, Lacey discovers that there is more to the music box than just music. She now is now the master to a very cute, very sweet, and very hardworking genie. For the next month she can make a wish every day. This is exactly the break that she has needed. Grant and Lacey must work together and learn from each other throughout his stay.
I get so excited when I stumble across a new talented author. This is the first time I have read a story about genies, I loved it! It’s definitely a new topic that I would like to read more of in the future. Lacey is such a strong independent character that you come to respect. I found myself caring for this young woman who loves her little brother so much, and I admired the spunk and courage she needs to carry the family through its rough times. It’s a bonus that we get to see such a sweet romance that blossoms between a genie and his master. I can’t wait to read the second book in the series.
