REVIEW: Saving Wishes by G.J. Walker-Smith

Saving Wishes by G.J. Walker-Smith

Title: Saving Wishes
Author: G.J. Walker-Smith
Series: The Wishes Series #1
Publication Date: February 12th 2013

For Charli Blake, being seventeen is a tough gig.
She's been branded a troublemaker, her reputation is in tatters and she's stuck in Pipers Cove, a speck of a town on the coast of Tasmania.
Thankfully, it's temporary. Her lifelong dream of travelling the world is just months away from becoming reality. All she has to do is ride out the last few months of high school, which is easier said than done thanks to a trio of mean girls known as The Beautifuls.
When Adam Décarie arrives in town, all the way from New York, life takes an unexpected turn. His arrival sets off a chain of events that alters her life forever, convincing her of one thing. Fate brought him to her.
Saving Wishes is the story of a girl who doesn't quite fit the life she's living, and the boy who helps her realise why.

My Review

SAVING WISHES tells the story of a seventeen-year-old girl, Charli, short for Charlotte. I have to say, this was a great story. The characters were all amazing and the story plot is so interesting. I kind of died after the ending. I mean, how can you end a book like that?! 

Charli was witty, HILARIOUS, and she has this vibe around her that I can't describe but totally love! I love how she has this unique personality, I just love that about characters. Her relationship between her brother, Alex (oooooh a huge twist that will wrench your guts. READ IT!), is just so admiring. I love how they understand each other and push each other buttons. It felt so real that I really wished I had an older brother like that.

Adam was just as hilarious as Charli. He's super rich over in New York, and he has a car that everyone drools over. He's isn't a bad boy, he's charming, kind, funny, witty and he sees the best in Charli. He knows Charli, and he understands her. That's what I love about him. He knows all the wrong in Charli, but he understands, and he sticks by her side (I seriously want him to be my boyfriend. Shh! No one should know!).

I really enjoyed reading Saving Wishes, the book dealt with school, bullying, relationships, dreams, and lastly--love. It was so enjoyable, laughable, dramatic in some parts that I just want to join the characters in the book. I love Charli, Adam, Alex and other characters that took a great part in this book. I can't wait for the next one!!
