Just One Wish - Janette Rallison

Sunday, June 27, 2010
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?

I can't even describe how much I loved this book, and it is on my list of best books of 2010. I read it in one night and couldn't put it down for anything. Annika was very real to me and I loved her as the heroine in this book which is pretty rare for me.

The plot was really unique and interesting, and I thought it was executed wonderfully. Jeremy really captured my heart and I too felt like an overprotective big sister to him by the end. Speaking of the end...oh my goodness, I was a wreck. I was crying like a baby! Definitely not what I was expecting but I still loved it. I picked this book from the library on a whim and I'm so glad I did.

I'll be definitely checking out more works by Janette!

I also really enjoyed this book. I thought it was funny and sweet, but also dealt with some real issues
