Brings me back to the days when I would bike to my local library and check out 10 books at a time, and read them by the weeks end...
what even made me want to purchase the book more was the fact that the inside cover was written on with the previous owner's name and the words Hands Off. sooooo cute. How can one not want to preserve that.
as for the review of the book. this book follows the same format as the other BSC books. a challenge is presented, and by the end of the book, it is solved. (less)

I was curious to find out about this particular woman's wish and how she was going to get thru the times in her life.
The story centers around Anne Marie, although other women, like Lillie & Barbie also comes into light. But I view Lillie & Barbie as just side characters to this particular 20 wishes as a distraction, so that the author can keep you on the edge of your seat, waiting for what's going to happen to Anne Marie.
In reality these 20 wishes become more than just wishes... you write them down so that you can cross off the wishes as when you write down stuff it's become a list of to dos instead of just wishes.
in the book, the 20 wishes touches the lives of people, whomever these women talked to, they all want to start up a wish list. It's like RAOK except it's wishes. It's not a bad idea really making these wishes, because you never know if it will come true.
It's as if you dare to write it down, then it will come true for you.(less)
