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
) to help him believe he can survive his upcoming surgery. Hollywood
But Annika’s plan to convince Jeremy that a magic genie will grant him any wish throws her a curve ball 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?
Just One Wish was a great book to read, at times it was funny, others sad, and overall an enjoyable read. The plot was fun, but it was serious, too because although Annika was trying to get an actor to come home with her, it was for an important reason- to help her little brother who had cancer get his biggest wish granted. Steve Raleigh acted in a show known as Teen Robin Hood. Jeremy, Annika's six year old brother, thought Steve was really Robin Hood and wanted nothing more than to meet him. I felt like Annika was a great character. She was caring, a great friend, and loved her brother. She would do anything for him. Just One Wish showed the importance of family, along with following your dreams.
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
P.S. I'm doing a little construction on my blog. What do you think of my new header...? Sorry if things are a little jumbled while I'm changing it around. (:
