Whew-- my FIRST blogger review for YOU WISH!

And it is awesome!

From Princess Bookie Reviews:

"This book was so much fun! I couldn't put it down, I even took it to Dairy Queen with me. I loved every second of this! I laughed so hard at some of the wishes. This book could have been written about me (and every other teenage girl who has ever been alive)! I felt as though I could relate to it 100%, no doubts in my mind! I think it relates to every girl who has ever wished her doll came to life or for a hot pink pony (yes that was me as a kid) or for that hot boy to kiss her."

She gives it 5 out of 5! WOOT!

Full review

ETA: Also, Sarah Maas, author of the forthcoming QUEEN OF GLASS (Bloomsbury) reviewed it
HERE. She says, "YOU WISH is amazing. Seriously. It has the perfect combination of comedy, drama, and magic. I think it's Mandy's best book yet."


YOU WISH hits shelves in 4 months and 4 days!
