Janette Rallison's "Just One Wish"

I first experienced Janette Rallison's hilarious storytelling several years ago when I took one of her books on a family trip. Since then I've been making my way through her entire collection of stories, from the obvious teen reads (all geared for national audiences) to her novels geared toward adults (which she writes under the name Sierra St. James--and they are all perfectly safe to hand to a thirteen-year-old without a qualm). She'll keep you entertained from the start. Janette's latest offering is Just One Wish--which I still need to read. The blurb:

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 fi nds 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.

You can read a truly excellent review of the book here. Also, check out Janette's website to learn more about her and her other books, see some book trailers and other fun stuff.
