Review: Wishing for You



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 about 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.

Rating: 5 stars


Wishing for You by Elizabeth Langston is a beautifully written novel. One that makes readers want to revisit it time and time again. The main character, Kimberley, has short term memory. This is viewed as a great distress to her. However, throughout the tale, she learns that it’s not as bad as she once thought. Her weakness makes her special. She is perfect for a man who needs a woman like her. The bond between the two characters is sweet. I loved how a man looked beyond Kimberly’s weakness and saw her strengths instead. Absolutely, an enjoyable fantasy read that will delight many. The friendship, romance, and subject matter covered within were amazing. Elizabeth Langston masterfully wove real issues into an entertaining yet inspiring novel. Overall, I highly recommend Wishing for You to readers everywhere.
