I have a warning I would like to issue to anyone who is preparing to read this, listen carefully: Do not, I repeat DO NOT read this on a school/work night. That was my mistake. Sunday evening I picked up Just One Wish and began to read what I thought would be a fun romantic comedy with a splash of sweet sadness. What I got was an incredibly amazing novel that kept me up until 3 am!


No, it did not take me that long to read, I finished the book somewhere around one twenty, but by the time I was actually sound asleep, it was 3. You see this book was a page turner, filled with comical action, romance, and a surprising deepness that will touch readers without making them sob.


Annika is a confident blond who devotes her time to her six year old brother who has cancer. The story starts off with Annika and her BFF Madison waiting to get in at Toys R Us at 4 in the morning after thanksgiving (black Friday, you know?) to get a Teen Robin Hood action figure set for her brother, but readers really get a glimpse at Annika's personality when all the action figures are taken by a sleazy man with a big heart for cash.


So the story unfolds from there as Annika drives to Hollywood with Madison and get into all kinds of comic situations involving the handsome Teen Robin Hood actor - Steve Raleigh. This is a great novel about love, loss, and of course the fact that some wishes are meant to come true.

Annika
Truman loves her brother. However, now he is sick with cancer and she
will do almost anything to help him believe and to make him happy,
including getting a man terribly mad just to get a teen robin hood set,
and driving four hours to California to try and convince the actor,
Steve Raleigh, otherwise known by her little brother as Robin Hood,
to grant her brothers wish of meeting him. Sound impossible? Well,
Annkia has a way of getting what she wants. However, things dont go
quite as planned when the huge snake that she brings with to get past
the security gets loose and her real identity is discovered. Will Steve
turn Annika in to the police, or will he grant Annikas 6 year old
brother his wish?


Just
One Wish by Janette Rallison was a touching read. She used the perfect
speed making the story glide along, keeping readers on their toes and
wanting to read more. The story evolved around Annika trying to grant
her little brothers wish, which was to meet Robin Hood. The only thing
that I wish was different in this story was the ending, which wasnt as
satisfying as a reader would like, but it did make the story more
realistic. I really like Janettes style of writing and I am looking
forward to reading more of her books!
