Except, when it turns out that the one wish that her brother wants is to meet Teen Robin Hood, Annika must find a way to get in contact with the much sought after star and beg him to come and meet her brother.
But get Annika and her best friend succeed in this impossible task...especially as the days tick and the time for Jeremy's surgery draws closer and closer...
When I first read the summary at the back of the book, I'd already come to the conclusion that this would be another ordinary teenage book. After all, it has "the celebrity meets teenage girl" plot written all over it.
Luckily, Just One Wish proved to be more than what I'd assumed it to be. The driving point in the novel is the relationship between Annika and her little brother, Jeremy. Because of him, she gets herself into outrageous situation after outrageous situation.
Except, of course, this one is the craziest one yet.
I don't want to give too much away, it's predictable but it's better to read the novel yourself than to get my second-hand version of it.
The characters are refreshing, Annika and her best friend are girls that it's easy to relate too, Steve (Teen Robin Hood) is more than just a big-headed celeb and Jeremy, of course, is completely lovable.
One thing I disliked is how little the rest of Annika's family is fleshed out. I felt as if there could have been a little more development on their end.
Onwards, the dialoguebetween the characters is natural. Jannette Rallison is able to pull of the voice of a teen well.
Anyways, Just One Wish managed to be funny and heartwarming at the same time, despite the unrealistic plot.
Overall, Just One Wish is a perfect tale to cozy up with on a relaxing evening. I reccommend that you pick it up when it's released in the March of this year.
