Aw, too bad about the ending, that can really ruin it for me.
Lindsay Ribar The Art Of Wishing
Great review, Debby! Ok, you had me when you compared the main character to Caymen. I'm adding this to my TBR list! I like Aladdin when I was a kid and I've been looking forward to read this book.
It seems like an adorable read — exactly what I need right now! Especially thanks to piling school assignments, I've been a little stressed out lately so hopefully something adorable and light or fantasy and paranormal can boost my mood! A book with a genie?

I love that it seems like a great blend of contemporary and paranormal. That excerpt you included pretty much sealed the deal though, because he sounds adorable! I think, while I was hesitant about the ending, the great rest of the book overpowers that. Hope you like it!
Isn't that quote just the best??!?! I was melting, seriously. So adorable. Just… perfect. Most paranormal really doesn't work for me either. This book was totally worth my excitement and anticipation. Margo makes an astounding number of stupid decisions throughout the book.
To be fair, she just became a genie and is exploring her magic, which leads to the obvious outcome of her getting a little power-drunk on what she can do and feeling invincible because of it. Still, planning to abandon what little of her life is left and just take off with Oliver when he starts pressuring her into it? I was practically screaming at her to stand up and tell him to stop being so pushy! Even if Naomi has her own flaws, what she says to Margo really matters.

Her very first master is gross beyond belief. Margo wants it because of the wish, but that does not equal her actually wanting it, which makes it rape. As much as the scene hurt me, what she did with it made my heart sing. Where she could live by the loose rules of society before, she lives by a much stricter, absolutely immovable set now where she has to take a pick from a plate full of poor choices and learn to live with it.
So basically adulthood metaphors are happening here.

Speaking of that darker side of being a genie, Oliver. Oh, Oliver. Will the artwork pop up somewhere else like dandelions themselves tend to do? That remains to be seen. Saturday 9ampm; Sunday 1pmpm.
