Wish by Alexandra Bullen


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.

In a breathtaking debut from Alexandra Bullen, Wish asks the question: If you could have anything, what would you wish for?

Summary from

After finishing Wish last night, and thinking about it today, I feel there’s not much I can say. Usually with a book I give three stars it is because I liked it, yet still had to trudge through it. Wish was short enough, and flowed well enough that I did not in fact feel like putting it down. When I finished all I thought was, “well, that’s nice.” No sense of satisfaction, no eagerness for more, just finished.

Wish was a story about family, moving on after losing a loved one, and magic. I felt the loss, but did not get into the romance and the magic. Parts of the reality of the story were unbelievable to me. I guess the one word to describe Wish was okay. Worth my library read, but not one I’d tell all my friends about.
