Title: As You Wish
Author: Chelsea Sedoti
Synopsis: What if you could ask for anything- and get it?
In the sandy Mojave Desert, Madison is a small town on the road between nothing and nowhere. But Eldon wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, because in Madison, everyone gets one wish—and that wish always comes true.
Some people wish for money, some people wish for love, but Eldon has seen how wishes have broken the people around him. And with the lives of his family and friends in chaos, he’s left with more questions than answers. Can he make their lives better? How can he be happy if the people around him aren’t? And what hope is there for any of them if happiness isn’t an achievable dream? Doubts build, leading Eldon to a more outlandish and scary thought: maybe you can’t wish for happiness…maybe, just maybe, you have to make it for yourself.
My thoughts: Overall I really enjoyed As You Wish, I loved the premise of once turning 18 you are granted one wish in a magical cave. I feel like Eldon could have been a better character if he wasn’t so self absorbed and just UGH. I strongly disliked him. I feel that some of the things that were done or written could have been written better but overall it was good.
