Flashback Friday is a weekly posting event, hosted by me, that gives book bloggers an opportunity to review a book they love but haven’t read in awhile. These reviews probably won’t be as detailed as more recently read books fresh on our minds.

Post your own Flashback Friday book review then add your URL to the linky at the bottom of this post. I look forward to reading where your Flashback leads us.

4 STARS: I Really Liked It

From Goodreads.com:
Seventeen-year-old Annika Truman knows about the power of positive thinking. With a little brother who has cancer, it’s all she ever hears about. And in order to help Jeremy, she will go to the ends of the earth (or at least as far as Hollywood) to help him believe he can survive his upcoming surgery.

But Annika’s plan to convince Jeremy that a magic genie will grant him any wish throws her a curveball when he unexpectedly wishes that his television idol would visit him. Annika suddenly finds herself in the desperate predicament of getting access to a hunky star actor and convincing him to come home with her. Piece of cake, right?

Janette Rallison’s proven talent for laugh-out-loud humor, teen romance, and deep-hearted storytelling shines in a novel that will have readers laughing and crying at the same time.

My Thoughts:
Oh such a fun read. It’s difficult not to tear up a little during the read though. A six-year-old has cancer! That fact is truly sad and will pull on your heart strings, but, true to the writing of Janette Rallison, there are lots of light and funny scenes as well.

I love how Annika has to try to meet a mega tv star, Steve Raleigh, and convince him to visit her sick brother. What teenage girl wouldn’t love to meet a gorgeous teenage tv star? Lots of laughs!

Favorite Line:
“The problem with internet directions is that they’re not always clear. That is the only reason it took us half an hour to get to the store and not, as Madison claimed, because I drive too fast, pass by streets, and then recklessly make U-turns in the middle of four lanes of traffic.”

Happy Reading!

  1. LOL! I have a meme called Flashback Friday, but I post original writing of my life on it. I'll have to write some reviews in the future of books I read a long time ago. I have lots I want to write about 🙂 Thanks for telling me about this!
