Wishing for You by Elizabeth Langston She’s a girl who can’t remember. He’s the guy she can’t forget… It’s her final semester of high school, and Kimberley Rey is curious to discover what will come next. She needs to pick a college, but her memory disability complicates the choice. Will her struggles to remember make it impossible to leave home? Help arrives through an unexpected and supernatural gift. Grant is a “genie” with rules. He can give her thirty wishes (one per day for a month) as long as the tasks are humanly possible. Kimberley knows just what to ask for--lessons in how to live on her own. But her wishes change when a friend receives a devastating diagnosis. As she joins forces with Grant to help her friend, Kimberley learns that the ability to live in the moment--to forget--may be more valuable than she ever knew.

“Are you going to sleep on me, Sean?”
“If you’re talking, probably not.”
His words came out in a drowsy mumble. Had the photo shoot drained him that much—or had he already been tired before we started? “What do you do all day?”
“Read. Watch Netflix.”
I waited, but he contributed nothing else. “That’s all?”
“You can’t just drift.”
“Yes, I can.”
I had to hope he was teasing, because otherwise, his responses would alarm me. “You’ve never drifted in your life. You said you want to act like nothing’s different.”
“So I lied.”
“Have you gotten sick of it yet?”
“Yes. Or I will be after I’ve finished my West Wing marathon.” He yawned noisily.
I let my head drop against his and listened for his breathing to even out and his body to relax.
This portrait session had been good for all of us, but his fatigue worried me. Even though I had homework, I would stay here until they made me leave. Spending time with Sean had become more important than anything else I had to do.
Strange how knowing our story had no happy ending had freed us to live in the moment. We weren’t guy and girl. We weren’t damaged and terminal. We were just now.
I was very intrigued by the short version of what this book is about. What a wonderful thing, finding a Genie that can grant 30 wishes, one a day for a month. But these wishes must be humaly possible to achieve. Kimberley Rey is about to get on with her future plans and she is going to pick a college to attend. But she has a problem remembering things that have happened. She really wants to be on her own. Can the Genie help her? What happens when she realizes that she may be needed elsewhere? What will she decide to do with her own life and the rest of her wishes? I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for a review and all opinions are mine.
