FTC Disclosure: Nookbook from Barnes and Noble

I really liked this one. It was different and that is definitely good in the inundated market that is YA fiction.
Olivia has just moved to San Francisco with her parents after the death of her twin sister Violet. She's devastated and is trying to find a way to fit in at her new school and deal with her sister being gone. The author takes us back a bit so we get to know Violet...as the exact opposite of Olivia. Violet was outgoing and fun, she had all the friends and the great fashion sense.
Olivia eventually finds Violet's last dress she bought and decides to wear that for her mom's party, only it has a rip and needs to be mended. This takes her to Posey's shop. She's the modern-day fairy godmother! Olivia gets three dresses to make three wishes with.
Mayhem ensues when she wishes her sister back...as a ghost along with the other two wishes.
I enjoyed the sisters' interaction, how Violet tried to help Olivia get friends and the new boyfriend. It was a cute story about moving on and learning to live.
Rating: 4/5 stars
|Paperback English version|
My pick would be the German cover! But all are pretty in their own way.
