Wish by Alexandra Bullen
Olivia Larsen's twin sister, Violet, is dead. Olivia knows nothing that can change that . . . until the day she receives a beautiful dress. The dress doesn't just look magical: it has the power to grant wishes. And all Olivia wants is her sister back.
But Violet's return isn't what Olivia expected. As love, secrets, betrayal, and a haunted past collide, Olivia begins to wonder what a wish is worth . . . and if her life will ever look the same.
"Bullen delivers an enticing first novel . . . she makes the sights of San Francisco come alive in this sweet story of siblings determined to remain inseparable." - Publishers Weekly
"Touching....Readers [will be] rooting for Olivia to find her own voice and step into the sun." - Kirkus Reviews
My Review - I liked this book a lot. It moved pretty quickly and I loved the story line even though it was a YA. The only thing I didn't like in the book really was the drinking that the people did when they were supposedly in high school. But overall it was a pretty awesome book and I can't wait to read the next book by Bullen!
