Wishful Thinking; Alexandra Bullen

  • ARC
  • Reading level: Young Adult
  • Publisher: Point; 1 edition (January 1, 2011)


Adopted as a baby, Hazel has never belonged anywhere, and has always yearned to know the truth about where she comes from. So when she receives three enchanted dresses, Hazel wishes to know her mother. In one miraculous summer, Hazel finds her home, falls in love, and makes an unexpected friend. But will her search to uncover her past forever alter her future?

My Review

You will never read another book like Wishful Thinking. Here's just a few reasons why....Magical Dresses, Time Travel & Star Crossed Love.  Hazel went on an amazing journey. Not just a physical one either. If you could go into the past to find out what your biological mother was like would you? Hazel didn't have much choice. Once she was there she seemed to make the best of it. The emotions seemed real. You really felt like you were on the journey with her. The ending was perfect in my opinion. I don't think it could have ended any other way.

   This is in my top list of books for 2011. I do recommend Wishful Thinking to anyone who loves Young Adult books. There isn't another like it.
