From the Publisher:

She's a girl who can't remember. He's the guy she can't forget... 

It's her final semester of high school, and Kimberley Rey is curious about what will come next. She needs to pick a college, but her memory disability complicates the choice. Will her struggles to remember make it impossible to leave home? 

Help arrives through an unexpected and supernatural gift. Grant is a "genie" with rules. He can give her thirty wishes (one per day for a month) as long as the tasks are humanly possible. Kimberley knows just what to ask for--lessons in how to live on her own. 

But her wishes change when a friend receives a devastating diagnosis. As she joins forces with Grant to help her friend, Kimberley learns that the ability to live in the moment--to forget--may be more valuable than she ever knew.

Wishing For You  is the second book in the I Wish series by Elizabeth Langston.  This book can definitely be read and enjoyed as a stand alone book but I encourage you to also check out book 1 ~ I Wish. This series is fantastic!

In Wishing for You Ms. Langston again creates another magical tale involving a genie (Grant) who can grant and fulfill wishes but the wishes must be  within the guidelines of being "humanly possible." This book (and series) definitely adds a refreshing twist to the classic genie in a bottle theme! 

I found this book to be enjoyable, emotionally engaging with realistic characters and a plot that just tugged and tugged at my heart strings. I laughed, smiled and cried my way through reading this book.

I give Wishing For You .... four stars!
