Title: As You Wish
Author: Jackson Pearce
Year Published: 2009
Synopsis: Ever since Viola's boyfriend broke up with her, she has spent her days silently wishing—to have someone love her again and, more importantly, to belong again—until one day she inadvertently summons a young genie out of his world and into her own. He will remain until she makes three wishes. Jinn is anxious to return home, but Viola is terrified of wishing, afraid she will not wish for the right thing, the thing that will make her truly happy.
As the two spend time together, the lines between master and servant begin to blur, and soon Jinn can't deny that he's falling for Viola. But it's only after Viola makes her first wish that she realizes she's in love with Jinn as well . . . and that if she wishes twice more, he will disappear from her life—and her world—forever.
Jackson Pearce spins a magical tale about star-crossed lovers, what it means to belong . . . and how important it is to be careful what you wish for.
Why?: Paul and I have read two of Jackson Pearce's other books, so he got this one for us to read as well. Hooray!
Expectations: I expect this to be a fun story about a high school girl and her boyfriend troubles. Probably a few sad moments, since there are star crossed lovers, but overall a fun story.
Judging a book by its cover: The cover has a girl who looks like she's trying to make a decision. I think most of this book will have to do with choices and their consequences.
