Summary from GoodReads: Sixteen-year-old Macy Queen is looking forward to a long, boring summer. Her boyfriend is going away. She's stuck with a dull-as-dishwater job at the library. And she'll spend all of her free time studying for the SATs or grieving silently with her mother over her father's recent unexpected death. But everything changes when Macy is corralled into helping out at one of her mother's open house events, and she meets the chaotic Wish Catering crew. Before long, Macy joins the Wish team. She loves everything about, the work and the people. But the best thing about Wish is Wes—artistic, insightful, and understanding Wes—who gets Macy to look at life in a whole new way, and really start living it

My Review: WOW...let me tell you how much I loved Wes' character. Is there really a Wes out there? Someone not into perfection? 

This book was a wonderful, refreshing, light read. It's great for a summer day or even for a fall day when you just need that *bright* escape. 

Sarah as unique characters that are well developed and you're easily able to relate to them. 

Sarah's father has died and it's been hard on her mom. Sarah feels that, due to lacking family things, everything must be prefect until she meets people that let her see that life isn't perfect. Most importantly they show her it's OK to not be perfect. 

While this book did have some deeper thoughts {death, the struggle after}, it still ended up being wonderful and places a really great thought out there for those of us who always have to reach our goals perfectly. 

My 12 year old tends to run away from longer books, but this is one that I am actually going to include in her homeschool curriculum to get her to read. Wonderful book.

RATING: ♥♥♥♥

Pages: 374
