Recommend: No
Compelling Aspect of the Book: This is a great story about a young girl discovering herself and dealing with magic. The Magic part of the book is very apparent, and yet it is not the central focus.
Did you finish it: Yes
Were you disappointed with the book at all: I really feel like the plot has been used to much. Albeit, the wish stealer aspect is a new twist. I really wold like a more creative twist to the whole, young teen finding her true self, coming into new powers, and finding a boyfriend. It's been used too much. I like the plot, but you need more imagination to make it work.
Cover: Definitely and interesting cover, but it is aimed for teens between 12 and 14; so not appealing to older teens. The cover has a distinct whimsical vibe to it, befitting the subject, but I am a little confused on why there is so much light. Do the publishers need to put so much on the cover? I don't remember reading about a light around the fountain.
