This book was so cute! Ismae's character felt deep and real, and I loved reading from her perspective. The romance was so pure and good. Nahlia was such a wonderful person! It has the sweetest happy ending, too.

(Also I know the author so yknow... that's another good reason to read it!)

This lil' story is now out in the world! It's a coming-of-age tale set in a fantasy world, following one girl's growth and development throughout the years. It features magic, wishes, cuteness, finding the strength to follow your dreams, and two girls falling in love, so if any of those things appeal to you, you’ll definitely enjoy this!

As a very smol new author who just wants to share her words with people, I'm extremely grateful for any support. If you've read it and liked it, I'd love you for

Ok so I've never been a big romance reader. I usually gag at that stuff. So somebody please tell me why I will ship these girls to my grave!
I've known Andrea for a little while now and have been meaning to read this since she mentioned it existed. The story is so heartwarming and adorable and relatable and just go read it ok? I guarantee you'll be smiling all the way through.

I loved this book! I first found out about this book when Andrea plugged that she published her own novella in our university teams class. I was beyond impressed and very excited to read it for myself as I've never met anyone who's published a book before. It is my dream to publish my own book and I hope Andrea can give me some tips but enough about that, let's talk about this book. Where do I begin? This book is so cute I felt all the feels whilst reading it (as Andrea knows lol :D). I highly r ...more

This is one of the sweetest books I have ever read. Andrea Ulibarrena is a young writer who is mature well beyond her years, both in terms of her writing skills and her outlook on life. This is the kind of story that will resonate with anyone who has a dream — which, I hope, means anyone. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this novella: the characters, the setting, the plot, the pacing, and the positive messages it conveys. I can't wait to read more from this talented young author! ...more

Loved One Wish!

It feels like you’re reading someone’s diary or like an old friend is recounting their life to you. There are so many ADORABLE moments (smol gays make me happy lol) and it’s also just inspiring.

This book is for everyone who’s ever felt like they were different and wouldn’t ever fit in (or anyone who’s just looking for an easy cute read).

*I was sent this book for free to share

I'm pretty sure that Andrea and I are kindred spirits. After reading this book, I found that I related to Isamae quite a bit. Even the parts I didn't find 100% relatable were still very gripping and well written. I wish I wrote that well as a teen.

It was written in a way that it really tugged at my heartstrings and made me feel for the characters. And the writing was just amazing. It flowed beautifully without being too wordy.

I look forward to more from this author, for sure.

Andrea Ulibarrena lives in London. She’s been coming up with stories since she learned how to string two words together and writing them down since she learned how to hold a pencil, and she loves stories that explore the intricacies of human relationships and emotions, especially when set in a fantasy world.
