Review: Wish by Alexandra Bullen

Goodreads: For broken-hearted Olivia Larsen, nothing can change the fact that her twin sister, Violet, is gone . . . until a mysterious, beautiful gown arrives on her doorstep. The dress doesn't just look magical; it is magical. It has the power to grant her one wish, and the only thing Olivia wants is her sister back.

With Violet again by her side, both girls get a second chance at life. And as the sisters soon discover, they have two more dresses and two more wishes left. But magic can't solve everything, and Olivia is forced to confront her ghosts to learn how to laugh, love and live again.

Kritters Thoughts: What a great tween read! A story about a girl who is in desperate need of guidance, so in pops the ghost of her recently deceased twin. She finds that with her sister by her side she can fit in better at her new school and overcome anything that is in her way.

A girl trying to get through high school without the person closest to her is a story worth reading for the young and young at heart. The author writes from her perspective - it was cute and quaint to hear from a young girl what bothers her and affects her on a daily basis. I enjoyed taking a trip back to those days in my mind and comparing my stress then to now - what a difference.

I would pass this book along to my younger group of readers. The older may enjoy, but I would warn that is definitely not geared for us as an audience.
