When You Wish characters ¹ 104 G cheeseburgers Swapping her stilettos for flip flops Getting a job that doesn’t reuire dancing winking or mall appearances And falling for the cutest realest boy she’s ever met But how will she know if he feels the same way Because for once in her life someone is going to have to like her for who she really is. Kristin Harmel is a new to me author though I have acuired several of her titles that are languishing on my TBR pile Though I don t normally find myself drawn to the young adult genre this book appealed to me on several levels First the idea of a teen superstar who is likeable when all we ever hear about is the scandal and drama of the teen celebrities inundating the media nowadays is a refreshing and welcome change Secondly I liked that the story was clean I don t think the young adult genre should cross over into mainstream adult fiction and there have been a few books I have taken on recently that were marketed as young adult but were excessively graphic and explicit and not for a young adult reader Last but not least When You Wish is a feel good story about a young girl on a journey to take back her life who finds love along the wayI enjoyed going along for the ride when Star Beck decides to find out what the world is like outside of her reality When she discovers that her mother has been lying to her for the past six years she alters her appearance and takes off for Florida to find the father she hasn t seen in thirteen years When her funds run drastically low she resorts to getting a job in a restaurant using a false name She is drawn to a boy in the restaurant and ultimately gets to know him better and he helps her improve her waitressing skillsI was uite surprised at the direction the story took when Star finally locates her father but I felt it made Star a stronger and realistic character The author does an exceptional job of giving the reader a front row seat to Star s life Several times throughout the book I found myself wondering how the truth would be revealed and what the conseuences would be for concealing her true identity In the end this book turned out to be a very fast and enjoyable read that made me smile

When You Wish characters ¹ 104 Ve and without people being nice just because well she’s Star Beck And when she discovers that her mom has been lying to her for years about something very important Star decides to find out what the world beyond her stage is like after allIn the blink of an emerald green eye Star finds herself buying a car Eatin. 23 this is a book i read in middle school and which was on the plastic beach reads shelf insert on the side of one of the YA shelves in the library i ve read it before but forgotten it clearly because i used to consume books like gasoline and then immediately expel them in clear memory less fumes not to get too into it but i was very obsessed with these sorts of books on celebrity culture either because1 they re FUN or because2 not to psychoanalyze myself but clearly i was very lonely and needed to sink myself one YA novel at a time into these glitzy little alternate lives in order to escape or at least temporarily stretch outside of my own body it was the brand of wish fulfillment most available to me or whatever hence the fact that even at 19 i still have all of Airhead by meg cabot memorized because i read that literally about seven hundred times it s about having your brain transplanted into the body of a literal model and thus a better life and not even by choice so you can retain some degree of nobleness and rightful indignation in the face of your beautiful beautiful fate my love of this was probably some early form of dysphoria or at least dysmorphia or probably just the bud of womanhood and the subseuent dream of experiencing full and glorious inhabitation of femininityanyway the book itself is just one large repetition of each one of Star s thoughts which is optimal for a certain kind of headspace entering and for fully imagining yourself as the character which was something that i was unbeknownst to myself looking for in books at 13 probably again not to psychoanalyze myself every page in the beginning for example she says some variation of but my mom loves me and I m Star Beck and there s no way to escape this gilded cage of fame Rightsadly it was not as fun as i wanted it to be and the lush 90s painting of a cover misled me into thinking it would be slightly surreal along the lines of a tyra banks modelland or a weetzie bat neither of which i have read the love interest was stupid as fuck and in fact boring to death however that s harsh because i think his biggest strength was his visual aspect which as i obviously was looking at him through the sieve of words printed on shitty brown yellow YA paperback pages could not effectively see i think it was dumb how he winked so much anyway is this a review i feel like it is here how about if you are one of the two and a half people that read this you let me know in the comments
