My Feelings:

Kayla McHenry's sweet sixteen sucks! Her dad left, her grades dropped, and her BFF is dating the boy Kayla's secretly loved for years. Blowing out her candles, Kayla thinks: I wish my birthday wishes actually came true. Because they never freakin' do.

Kayla wakes the next day to a life-sized, bright pink My Little Pony outside her window. Then a year's supply of gumballs arrives. A boy named Ken with a disturbing resemblance to the doll of the same name stalks her. As the ghosts of Kayla's wishes-past appear, they take her on a wild ride . . . but they MUST STOP. Because when she was fifteen? She wished Ben Mackenzie would kiss her. And Ben is her best friend's boyfriend.

My Review:
Wishes coming true and a cover that’s too adorable, I had to read it.

Kayla is a great character. She’s sarcastic, quirky and a loner. She’s a realistic character and I just adore that she adores converse sneakers. I used to wear them all the time in high school and even nowadays I do too.
Ben is adorable, sweet and caring. It was such fun reading how Kayla was trying to avoid him and just failing completely.

The plot is great. OMG, the wishes that come true are hilarious. I was laughing throughout the book. The best scene of the story was with Ken at the mall. I’m not going to tell you what happened, but it was too FUNNY. Kayla was trying really hard to keep all of her wishes a secret. But when finally the most powerful secret she kept was once spoken, it changed everything.

You Wish is cute, light and just a whole lot of fun. Read it when the sun is shining outside and you have nothing to do, because you will want to read all of it at once.

This sounds like a really cute and fun read. Do you think it would be appropriate for 7/8th grade students? If so, I must get a copy for my classroom library. Great review!

I think this would be a nice read and change of pace with all the paranormal YA I've been reading lately.
