*This book was amazing teaching Wrenn to feel comfortable in the skin she's in and not worry about being popular and noticed by everyone else. This book brought tears to my eyes like no other book before as Wrenn discovers that to gain something in life you have to lose something else to learn the hard way. You guys have to check this book out you won't regret it ,truly remarkable.

One Wish is a realistic novel that deals with important issues. I am always drawn to "issue" books and especially dealing with eating disorders as I have some personal experience. Wrenn, the main character, is realistic, and I can relate with her struggles and self esteem issues. She has a wonderful best friend Zoe, who I would love to have for a friend. Her interactions with her family are well written too, and they are pretty spot on. Her mom isn't conveniently absent, and although she notices and tries to address the weight loss, these things can really fall under the radar much easier than people like to think. My absolute favorite character is Steven. I absolutely love nerds in real life, and this fictional character made me remember that not all men have to be dark mysterious and drop dead handsome. The cute and nerdy ones have a lot of heart and character. I did have a few issues with the ending and some of the resolution with the characters, but I liked this book and would still recommend to pick it up. It deals realistically with body image, eating disorders, popularity and healing.

I enjoyed this book and was glad I chose it. Found that the main character was engaging and had a realistic relationship with her single mom and sis. She is an interesting girl who finds out about herself by taking a bold step (with BF's prodding) into the school musical. I laughed at the reactions and embarrassment of how girls try to be very casual about relationships with boys and how sometimes it is hard to concentrate on other things when relationships with friend and family have some problems to work out. I would like to read other books by this author. Seems like the author did some research for this one. i would even read this again in the future.

This girl has a good voice and they put her in Grease, but she's fat so she does everything bad to lose weight. And this guy likes her but he's like too geeky. Then she starts liking him, but she makes herself sick from not eating and ends up in a hospital. I know somebody at my school who had this happen and she was out a long time. Anyway, this book is really good.
