ARC Review: I Wish by Elizabeth Langston

ARC Review

book review 1

What Lacey needs is a miracle. What she gets is a genie with rules.

Lacey Linden is hiding the truth of her life—a depressed mom, a crumbling house, and bills too big to pay. While her high school classmates see a girl with a ready smile and good grades, Lacey spends her evenings seeking ways to save her family. On a get-cash-quick trip to the flea market, Lacey stumbles over a music box that seemingly begs her to take it home. She does, only to find it is inhabited by a gorgeous “genie.” He offers her a month of wishes, one per day, but there’s a catch. Each wish must behumanly possible.

Grant belongs to a league of supernatural beings, dedicated to serving humans in need. After two years of fulfilling the boring wishes of conventional teens, he is one assignment away from promotion to a challenging new role with more daring cases. Yet his month with Lacey is everything that he expects and nothing like he imagines. Lacey and Grant soon discover that the most difficult task of all might be saying goodbye.

book review 1

I have received an advance readers copy of this novel from Netgalley for an honest review.

Lacey is a girl who literally makes her family alive. Ever since the death of her stepfather, she was the only person left for her mother and half brother to lean on. A fact, disastrous enough to make her normal teenage life crumbling.

But, what if one day, the music box, which she traded for her aunt’s candlesticks, turned out to be a home for a gorgeous genie which grants whatever she wishes for thirty days? Fair enough?

Well, here’s the catch. The wishes should be as humane as possible. In short, she cannot wish for loads of cash and a luxurious life in that very instant she met her genie.

So, what now? Will our heroine find a solution to her never ending problem? Or will she find something even much more that what the genie in the music box can offer?
