I’m still on a slight fantasy break, even for Waiting on Wednesday…although I don’t think this particular book is a break from fantasy. Wait, say what? I’m not sure if that sentence made sense.
Anyway, â€œWaiting Onâ€ Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that weâ€™re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s pick is…
You Wish by Mandy Hubbard
Release Date: August 5, 2010
Kayla McHenryâ€™s sweet sixteenth sucks! Her dad left, her grades dropped, and her BFF is dating the boy Kaylaâ€™s secretly loved for years. Blowing out her candles, Kayla thinks: I wish my birthday wishes actually came true. Because they never freakinâ€™ do.
Kayla wakes the next day to a life-sized, bright pink My Little Pony outside her window. Then a yearâ€™s supply of gumballs arrives. And a boy named Ken with a disturbing resemblance to the doll of same name stalks her. As the ghosts of Kaylaâ€™s wishes-past appear, they take her on a wild rideâ€¦ but they MUST STOP. Because when she was 15? She wished Ben Mackenzie would kiss her.
And Ben is her best friend’s boyfriend.
The cover’s so pink and girly! So chick-lit-y! I love it! The story somehow reminds me of the movie 13 Going on 30 for some reason, and I think it’s because of the wish thing. I can’t wait to get a copy of this book and see what happens with Kayla’s wishes. :D
What are you waiting on this week?
