It's also perfect for reluctant readers, with it's fast pace and accessible prose. On occasion it was a touch too cute for my tastes - but I think it's spot on for the audience it is written for View all 6 comments. Jun 18, Jenna Friebel rated it it was ok Shelves: young-adult. I read this synopsis and immediately put a hold on it at the library. I thought it sounded original and hilarious.

I had high hopes for it, so as soon as I picked it up, I dove into it.

And that's when it started to go downhill. Let me say first off, overall, I found this book enjoyable. However, it just did not live up to the expectations I had after reading the synopsis. The main character, Kayla, wasn't very likeable in my opinion. She has this whole cynical grunge thing I read this synopsis and immediately put a hold on it at the library.

She has this whole cynical grunge thing going on which I would have identified with if I had read this in middle school, but now I just found it annoying.

You Wish

The guy she was interested in didn't have great appeal to me, and when I read a romance story, I want to be in love with the person that my heroine is in love with. And I just wasn't.

Be Careful What You Wish for in Life

Kayla's best friend was alright, but I never felt like her character was developed enough for me to connect with. The only character I really enjoyed was Ann, the doll who came to life. Her childishness and naivety were amusing and fun. As for the plot and writing, there were some funny moments, but not as many as I expected there to be.

Also, I expected the pace to seem much quicker so I wouldn't want to put the book down, but I found it very easy to put down. The pace wasn't slow exactly; I mean, it wasn't painful to read. It was just all around average. To sum it up, I'd say You Wish by Mandy Hubbard is an easy, quick read with some humorous moments, but overall forgettable.

Mar 18, Gray : rated it it was amazing Shelves: books , reviewed , favorites , young-adult , fantasy-romance. Looking at the cover of this book which is pretty much in pink , I thought it would all be about a young girl and her childish adventures.

And in some way, I was actually right. But it was deeper than that So much deeper. You Wish is about the whirlwind of events in Kayla McHenry' s life just because of her Sweet Sixteen's birthday wish which in turn made her past birthday wishes come true well actually, not all, only 14, it surely doesn't include her wish when she was one. Now Looking at the cover of this book which is pretty much in pink , I thought it would all be about a young girl and her childish adventures.

Now she has to go through 2 weeks with one birthday wish coming to life each day. She encounters a pony, gum balls, a doll named Ann, Barbie's Ken and so much more but she has to undo all of these before what she fears the most will happen kissing Ben, her bestfriend Nicoles' s boyfriend. Although it seemed to me that Kayla would just be reliving her childhood memories and what she used to be when she was a child, but these actually contributed to the development of her character.

Ann, for example, opened up her eyes to the things that she has been avoiding and denying for the past years.

The two weeks have also made her realize that it was her choice to suffer from these problems, to have only one friend, to be a loner and to be angry at her mother. It's really amazing how in a short amount of time, she rediscovers herself, fixes her issues with Nicole and finally gets the courage to ask Ben out and even kiss him! It just would've been better if Kayla' s issues with her father were resolved or if more details on her relationship with her mother were given.

I also can't help but wonder how Kayla was able to forgive Nicole so easily for ditching her to hang out with her new friends. I know, I know, she has her reason and she actually has a point but it still doesn't her the right to just leave her bestfriend. Maybe she should have trusted Kayla enough, that maybe she has changed and that she would not make fun of her wanting to be popular and that she would instead support her since she was still her bestfriend.

Another thing, why and how she has made her sweet sixteen' s wish come true still remains a mystery. Was it something with the party or was it the cake? It still gives the readers something to ponder upon. This book, You Wish, lets us embrace our inner "childness" and allows us to remember that who we were when we were still young somehow reflects who we are now, no matter how different we have become.

It shows how one wish can change everything, in a good or bad way. And that when our wishes finally do come true, we may not love all of them and even regret these wishes. Indeed, we should remember: "Be careful what you wish for. Nov 03, Greta rated it liked it Shelves: food-challenge. When her sixteenth birthday party is a disaster, she makes a wish that all her wishes actually would come true. Each day for the next two weeks she receives one of her past birthday wishes. These include everything from suddenly knowing perfect Italian to having the ability to turn into a mermaid.

Kayla lives in fear of her final wish coming true, the one she made on her 15th birthday that Ben would kiss her. Ben is her best friend Nicole's boyfriend and the boy Kayla has been secretly in love with for years. As the wishes wreak havoc with her life, she wonders if she even still has a best friend. In addition, she is fast becoming an outcast at school, and she's fighting with her mother.

Urban Dictionary: You Wish

In the end, the wishes do finally disappear, but not before Kayla learns some valuable life lessons. Review: It started out a little slow, but it did pick up towards the end. I wouldn't say this was laugh out loud funny, but it was amusing. I liked Kayla as a character. She was very independent and self aware. I also liked Ben, and although he wasn't a super developed character, I totally understood why he was crush worthy.

The plot was pretty straight forward and resolved itself in a pretty predictable manner. Kayla learns to enjoy people and experiences again as she once did as a child, without pessimism and without fear of what others might think or expect from her.

She learns the danger of labeling people and that even if a person changes, she can still be your friend. I think the author could have had Kayla have a little more fun with her wishes. I was even kind of hoping that one or two of her wishes could have stuck around in the end. Overall, this was an easy read with a touch of whimsy and a touch of fairy tale.

Kayla McHenry had eccentric wishes of her own and when her 16th birthday came she got the surprise of her life. Her crazy and all out hilarious scenarios were a good reading experie What would you do if all the birthday wishes you've ever made in your life come true? Her crazy and all out hilarious scenarios were a good reading experience.

I did like the self-realization Kayla reached at the end, not only did it make me reflect on my own personal growth but it made me rejoice in the individual that I have become. In the book I didn't like Nicole all that much. I mean it was good that she wanted to pursue her dreams but still ahe was pretty shallow.
