really liked it
Read in January, 2012

Having previously read 'sisters red', I thought I would try some of Jackson Pearce's other books, and got this one for Christmas.

As you wish tells the story of a girl named Viola, who feels invisible and lonely ever since her boyfriend came out to her as gay and ended the relationship 7 months prior.... she is sat in class and wishes so hard that she ends up being assigned her very own genie, who she names 'jinn' the rest of what follows is the breaking of all the rules as viola discovers how to be happy in her own self and a has little romance along the way....

As you wish was quite an easy book to read, I enjoyed the split narrative here more than I did for sisters red, as it was split between viola and jinn and was much easier to follow. If you want a nice easy bit of teen drama meets fantasy fluff (after all , not many genie books out there) without the gore of werewolves, vampires, the complexity of dragons or other things that go bump in the night, then this one is for you!
