Review: Just One Wish by Janette Rallison

Book: Just One Wish by Janette Rallison
Genre: YA
Rating: A
For: Fun and sort of for my F2F book club

A few weeks ago when we met for my F2F book club, we discussed Janette Rallison and all her fun books. One of my friends loaned me the two latest books to read. She seemed to think that this one, Just One Wish, was the best one. So I saved it for last. And I have to agree. It is the best one so far!

Why is that? I think because it had a little more depth to it then the others. Yet, at the same time, it was funnier even than the others. Both elements mixed together made it the very best one of all.

Annika's little brother has a brain tumor. She pretends she has a magic genie that will grant him some wishes. She thinks she knows what he's going to wish for, and she has it all ready to give him.... the Teen Robin Hood action figure. But he surprises her and wishes for the REAL Teen Robin Hood!

So in order to keep him thinking positively, she has to go to California and track down the actor and... wow, some funny stuff happens after that.

This book had me laughing and crying both. I loved it.

Here's what the author has to say:

Other Reviews:


  1. I've been meaning to pick this one up for so long...must remember to put on my TBR pile!

  2. Glad you liked this one, Suey. It made me unquestionably happy... I really ought to read some of her earlier books.

  3. After your last review of one of her books I remember looking her up, but now I can't remember if I ended up requesting anything. Probably not a good thing! lol Off to check!
