The Art of Wishing by Lindsay Ribar

Here's a quick quip from the book's goodreads page:
He can grant her wishes, but only she can save his life.

Margo McKenna has a plan for just about everything, from landing the lead in her high school play to getting into a good college. So when she finds herself in possession of a genie's ring and the chance to make three wishes, she doesn't know what to do. Why should she put her life into someone else's hands?

But Oliver is more than just a genie -- he's also a sophomore at Margo's high school, and he's on the run from a murderer. As he and Margo grow closer, she discovers that it will take more than three wishes to save him.

A whole lot more.

My Take

I loved this book!  I could not put it down.  It moved like the wind and swept me up into just as easily.  It also gets one to thinking what you would do if you were granted three wishes.  It does require thought and planning.  You begin to see missteps and where things could go terribly wrong.  This book was just so enjoyable but at the same time very white knuckleish in places.  The characters were great.  Margo while likable is not too nice and I think that's a great thing.  Oliver...well don't we all wish we had a guy who could be exactly who'd we like him to be and grant our deepest wishes?!  :)  Definitely put this one in the TBR pile.  Right on the top.  I've giving this one 5 magical kisses!!
