Made me laugh and cry at the same time

What You Wish For

Rating: 5 of 5

This was the first book I have read by this author, so I wasn’t sure of what to expect. Having read it, I will certainly be reading more books by her in the near future.

Samantha Casey is the librarian at the fun private school in Galveston, Texas. She loves the principal and his wife, who also happen to be her landlords.

As events unfold, another principal comes to the school. That person is Duncan Carpenter, who just so happens to be the individual who was behind Samantha’s move from a California school to Texas.

While she is personally disturbed by his coming, she is sure that his quirky and lovable antics will soon put others at ease. Turns out Duncan has changed and not for the better.

As he institutes changes, the school starts to fall apart. Samantha leads the charge of teachers to try to oust Duncan before it is too late.

I laughed so much as I read this book. It also had very serious events and situations which were very sad. The author was able to convey it all while writing a book that kept me glued to it until I was finished.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
