"Just One Wish" by Janette Rallison

My Book Summary : The ultimate fantasy ... you meet a movie/TV star and they fall in love with you right away ... that's what happens in this sweet, funny, and touching story.

Annika would do just about anything for her little brother Jeremy, more so now then ever since her family found out that he has cancer. Nothing is off limits to make him happy. So, when she rushes to Toys "R" Us with her best friend Madison during the day after Thanksgiving sale for a Teen Robin Hood action figure for Jeremy, since it's all he seems to talk about as of late, she thinks no problem. Even when it comes down to dealing with a wormy older guy who just happens to be hording all of the Robin Hood figurines, no big deal.

But when she makes up this story for Jeremy that she received three wishes from a genie a while back, she has two wishes left, and she would like to give those two wishes to him ... things don't go as planned. She told him that one of the wishes would be for him to come out of his upcoming surgery with flying colors and the other one could be for anything he wanted. Well she assumed he would ask for that specific figurine but instead Jeremy wishes to have Robin Hood meet him and teach him more about archery! Thankfully when Annika told Jeremy that some wishes take a while to fulfill he believed her. Now the problem is how in the world is she going to get Steve Raleigh, the actor who portrays Teen Robin Hood, to come and visit Jeremy before his surgery in a week?

And she'll stop at nothing to make this happen ...

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars!! This was a great book!!! I loved it! The characters were portrayed wonderfully! I loved the banter between Steve and Annika! And Oh My God the stuff she could come up with at the drop of a hat! My only wish was that it was longer!!

Book Teaser(s) :
I bent down to have a one-on-one with Herman.
"Look, just be a good snake for the day and then we'll take you back to the pet store, okay?" I took the lid off and tried to remember how the lady at the pet store had picked him up. Was it headfirst or by the middle? I reached in and lifted him out of the cage. He at once wrapped himself around my arm, which I hoped was not a sign he was trying to eat me. ~ within Chapter 6
