Book Summary:

The last time sixteen-year-old Mandy Matteo broke a rule, her sister died. Since that day she has done only what is expected of her, but life as a goody-goody has made Mandy so boring her friends have all but abandoned her. And she’s given up on ever getting Ethan, the boy she’s liked forever, to notice her. Desperate, Mandy makes a wish to simply be happy.

Her wish is granted and happiness arrives in the form of Lexi, her childhood imaginary friend come to life. Magical wishes have conditions though: Once started, the wish cannot be altered or stopped. And once Mandy is truly content with her life again, Lexi must go back to where she came from. But Lexi loves being alive and she’ll do whatever it takes to stay that way.

Jan Review:

I liked the idea of a Soul Wish coming true and you having to figure out what your soul was truly needing when you made that wish.  This story is very unique in its formula.  I really liked being able to read a bit about each character from chapter to chapter.   The guide Desiree even has her own back story that we slowly get to peel away as the story progresses.  I am excited for the next book to really see what is going with Chrissy.  Thanks for a great read.
