First Impression: Love the premise.
Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Annika Truman knows about the power of positive thinking. With a little brother who has cancer, it’s all she ever hears about. And in order to help Jeremy, she will go to the ends of the earth (or at least as far as Hollywood) to help him believe he can survive his upcoming surgery.
But Annika’s plan to convince Jeremy that a magic genie will grant him any wish throws her a curveball when he unexpectedly wishes that his television idol would visit him. Annika suddenly finds herself in the desperate predicament of getting access to a hunky star actor and convincing him to come home with her. Piece of cake, right?
200words (or less) review: This is the third book by Janette Rallison I’ve read and it’s just as entertaining as the others. Just One Wish is a quick read, made even quicker by the fact that I couldn’t put it down until the last page was turned.
Annika is endearing and her exploits to get Jeremy the “real” Robin Hood are hilarious. I was smiling during the first try at the Stadium but the Studio had me in stitches. Jeremy is so cute and I thought that Steve (Robin Hood) was nice without being too perfect.
Just One Wish isn’t going to take you on an emotional rollercoaster but I was pleasantly surprised by the ending, it made the story more than just a laugh.
Throughout the book you’ll be routing for Annika on her mission and going “aw” when appropriate but most importantly – this will make you laugh.
