gone... until a mysterious, beautiful gown arrives on her doorstep. The dress doesn't just look
magical; it is magical. It has the power to grant her one wish, and the only thing Olivia
wants is her sister back.
With Violet again by her side, both girls get a second chance at life. And as the sisters soon
discover, they have two more dresses-and two more wishes left. But magic can't solve
everything, and Olivia is forced to confront her ghosts to learn how to laugh, love, and live
In a breathtaking debut from Alexandra Bullen, Wish asks the question: If you could have
anything, what would you wish for?
At first, I thought it was a little confusing Just a little. It got better when everything was
explained. I liked how this was a story about family, love, life, and friendships and it was
compassionate. I thought the characters were awesomely formed-and had their own unique
personality. I thought the cover was beautiful-a girl I beleive is Olivia wearing a dazzling
dress made out of stars, and I lovedhow her lower body disappeared into the sky. The
description and setting of thsi book was well formed, but the details could bebetter-I didn't
receive much. I thought the ending was great-satisfying, but still making you want more.
The suspense was awesome-I loved how Alexandra Bullen makes you grab hold of the book
and wish you could just inject it in your head and find out what was going to happen already.
The plot was really good, just some parts of the book don't exactly make sense that much.
But otherwise,it was actually really good, so if you like stories that are compassionate, this is
