On the third night of the third month after a girl’s thirteenth birthday, every girl in the town of Willow Hill makes three wishes.
The first wish is an impossible wish.The second is a wish she can make come true herself.And the third is the deepest wish of her secret heart.
Natasha is the oldest child in a family steeped in magic, though she’s not sure she believes in it. She’s full to bursting with wishes, however. She misses her mother, who disappeared nearly eight long years ago. She has a crush on one of the cutest boys in her class, and she thinks maybe it would be nice if her very first kiss came from him. And amid the chaos of a house full of sisters, aunts, and a father lost in grief, she aches to simply be...noticed.
So Natasha goes to the willow tree at the top of the hill on her Wishing Day, and she makes three wishes. What unfolds is beyond anything she could have imagined.
I am really having no luck with books this month. I might be experiencing a minor slump. Don’t feel bad I didn’t like it because my 2017 Reading assignment list is of books I want to read but not sure I am really interested in anymore. I know some of them look really cute but like I said this year I am in a WEIRD Mood.
I just wasn’t connecting with the Main Characters. She was so flat and one dimensional to me, I also wasn’t a fan of the writing style. I must have read the same page 3 times. I also found myself not wanting to pick the book back up after I put it down. I know I gave it 2 stars but this was a DNF. I only rated it because I am sure it’s a me thing and not the book. If you have it give it a try, maybe this is one of those books that are better suited for younger kids. Overall, just not the book for me.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
