The Art of Wishing (The Art of Wishing #1) by Lindsay Ribar

He can grant her wishes, but only she can save his life.

Margo McKenna has a plan for just about everything, from landing the lead in her high school play to getting into a good college. So when she finds herself in possession of a genie's ring and the chance to make three wishes, she doesn't know what to do. Why should she put her life into someone else's hands?

But Oliver is more than just a genie -- he's also a sophomore at Margo's high school, and he's on the run from a murderer. As he and Margo grow closer, she discovers that it will take more than three wishes to save him.

A whole lot more.

 I really enjoyed reading this book; I thought the author did a really good job writing this story. I love to read young adult stories and I think this will be a really good book for young adults who like fantasy stories. I loved the Twilight series and I think The Art of Wishing is just as good as those books.

When I was reading the story about Margo I could picture myself in her shoes and having to go through things and make decisions like she did. I really loved reading this book; every time I opened it up to read it I would get lost in the story and I would lose track of time. 

I like how the genie in the book looked like a human being and not like most genies do on TV or how they are portrayed in other books; I also loved how Lindsay Ribar made the genie more interesting than him just being able to grant wishes.  I thought that was a great twist to the story.

 I would love to read more of Ribar’s stories, I think she will be a great author. I think this would be a great book for adults to read as well as young adults. I give The Art of Wishing an “A+.”

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
