Summary (from goodreads):
What if all your wishes really came true?
Kayla McHenry's sweet sixteen sucks! Her dad left, her grades dropped, and her BFF is dating the boy Kayla's secretly loved for years. Blowing out her candles, Kayla thinks: I wish my birthday wishes actually came true. Because they never freakin' do.
Kayla wakes the next day to a life-sized, bright pink My Little Pony outside her window. Then a year's supply of gumballs arrives. A boy named Ken with a disturbing resemblance to the doll of the same name stalks her. As the ghosts of Kayla's wishes-past appear, they take her on a wild ride...but they MUST STOP. Because when she was fifteen? She wished Ben Mackenzie would kiss her. And Ben is her best friend's boyfriend.
Kayla is the character that everyone wishes they were because she's so cool and quirky. She says and experiences some of the funniest things that I laughed out loud while reading this book. Kayla is turning sixteen and everything is going wrong. Her mom threw her a big party that she didn't even want and her best friend doesn't even show up until three hours later. When she blows out her candles, she wishes that all her wishes would come true. And they do, every day after her party one wish comes true. And she knows she has to stop the wishes from happening because one year she wished that Ben, her best friend's boyfriend, would kiss her.
I loved every second of this book. It was written so well and the characters were so entertaining and changed so drastically that I actually believe that Mandy Hubbard is one of the best authors I have ever read. The book overall had a wonderful plot line filled with twists and turns. It kept me guessing what she wished and what would happen the next day.
Will I reread it?
Yes, I loved it. This book is for anyone who wished their birthday wishes actually came true (me being one of them). You will not be able to put it down with the quirky humor, unbelievable plot line, and awesome characters.
