Description

Ever since Viola's boyfriend broke up with her, she has spent her days silently wishing—to have someone love her again and, more importantly, to belong again—until one day she inadvertently summons a young genie out of his world and into her own. He will remain until she makes three wishes.

Jinn is anxious to return home, but Viola is terrified of wishing, afraid she will not wish for the right thing, the thing that will make her truly happy. As the two spend time together, the lines between master and servant begin to blur, and soon Jinn can't deny that he's falling for Viola. But it's only after Viola makes her first wish that she realizes she's in love with Jinn as well . . . and that if she wishes twice more, he will disappear from her life—and her world—forever.

Jackson Pearce spins a magical tale about star-crossed lovers, what it means to belong . . . and how important it is to be careful what you wish for.

Publishers Weekly Review

Sep 14, 2009 – The plot of Pearce's debut novel is simple: girl (Viola) meets boy (Jinn) and they fall in love, their story told in alternating perspectives. The twist: the boy happens to be a jinn (aka genie), and while Jinn is supposed to grant Viola three wishes and be on his merry way, he's definitely not supposed to become enamored of his master. Thus, their love is of the star-crossed variety. Luckily, Pearce doesn't allow things to become overly melodramatic. The banter between Viola and Jinn is quick, witty and, at times, comes with a dash of true feeling. However, their story is not without complications. When Viola shows an unwillingness to finish making her wishes, which would effectively banish Jinn from her life, Jinn orders a “press” from an ifrit (who acts as a heavy, forcing a reluctant wisher into compliance), and Viola is still working through complex emotions months after her breakup with Lawrence, her former boyfriend and current gay best friend. But Pearce never lets events become too dire. Overall, this is a fun, frothy read. Ages 12–up.

Customer Reviews

This book is pure awesome!

This is honestly one of the most compelling books I've ever read! You can't put it down once you've started. All the characters are entertaining and interesting. The chapters come in varying viewpoints from both the main characters. It's an awesome romantic comedy with a great balance of both humor and intensity. It's magical and beautiful and the writing quality is absolutely fantastic! Read it when you feel like laughing, crying, and dreaming in between.

LOVE IT!

This book is amazing! I've read it so many times and can't get enough of it too! Best book ever when it comes to romance, for me that is, besides, I love two sided stories...

Help!

I need help! I want this book so bad I read it once a long time ago and I couldn't remember the name so it took me forever to find it again and now I have and I have to wait to get it!I can't wait its too good of a book!*

*side effects of this book are extreme bouts of insanity as shown above and confusion of emotion such as wanting laugh and cry and scream within 1 minute
