I want to read that...

You Wish by Mandy Hubbard

Kayla McHenry’s sweet sixteenth sucks! Her dad left, her grades dropped, and her BFF is dating the boy Kayla’s secretly loved for years. Blowing out her candles, Kayla thinks: I wish my birthday wishes actually came true. Because they never freakin’ do.

Kayla wakes the next day to a life-sized, bright pink My Little Pony outside her window. Then a year’s supply of gumballs arrives. And a boy named Ken with a disturbing resemblance to the doll of same name stalks her. As the ghosts of Kayla’s wishes-past appear, they take her on a wild ride… but they MUST STOP. Because when she was 15? She wished Ben Mackenzie would kiss her.

And Ben is her best friend's boyfriend.

I really enjoyed Prada and Prejudice and this sounds sooo good! I can't wait - why is everything great being published months from now? *sulks*

This is published by Razorbill in August 2010.

This sounds great! What a fun concept for a story.

I agree - this sounds fantastic! I first read Mandy's post about it on Goodreads about a month ago, and I've been thinking about it ever since! The giant My Little Pony has particularly captured my imagination.

Thanks for the post - I hadn't seen the cover and I love it!
