Review: The Art of Wishing by Lindsay Ribar

Pages: 314
Published by: Dial books.
Thanks to: Pittsburgh public library.
From Goodreads: 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.

The Art of Wishing is one of the most creative and funny books that I've had the pleasure of reading lately. As a matter of fact, lately, I've been receiving library books and have not been able to complete them. When I picked Wishing up, I expected to put it in the pile of to-go-back books after reading about fifty pages. That didn't happen. I became engrossed with the characters and the storyline. It made me laugh and it had just the right amount of drama. And, the best part, no love triangles! It was awesome! I think I've been reading more fantasy books this past year and this is definitely one of my favorites. I never expected to enjoy something about genies so thoroughly. 
The writing, the music, the wishes, the comedy, and the romance all make this book a worthwhile pick, so if you have the chance, grab it and devour it! Also, that cover is breath taking!
