You Wish by Mandy Hubbard

1 Wish
2 Girls in love with the same boy
14 Days to stop the madness!

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.

I Loved this book.

It is so different to what you would think and it really makes the saying 'Don't judge a book by its cover' true! The bubblegum pink cover and plot summary are nothing like what the story is.

You really understand this teenage girl. She is closer to any realistic teen girl that I've ever read about in a novel. You can definitely relate to her and her problems. Okay so maybe not such problems as all her previous birthday wishes coming true one week, but certainly her friend, boy, body and family issues. It's also not very cheesy which makes a huge change from these usual wishy washy teen stories. It is also extremely funny.

A great read for both adults and teens alike.
