    One thought on “Wish I Might”

    1. This is a hard review to write because I adored the first three books in this series. But when the series took a turn from being "The Wedding Planner's Daughter" series to "The Life of Willa Havisham" the charm started to fade. I could deal with the last book because there were still glimpses of the charm that I liked. There was the big twist at the end with Willa's brother which was somewhat out of character for the books I thought, but still interesting. But Wish I Might just fell flat for me. [...]

    2. In Wish I Might, Willa really misses her boyfriend, JFK. She also finds out the dog she found on the beach has been claimed by someone. She also learns she has a brother. She thinks it isn't real, but then when she is doing some research she finds out he is her brother but they have different moms. Willa and her brother, Will, go around the Cape Cod area to try and find the dad because Will still thinks he is real. When Willa tells her mom about Will and how he thought their dad was still alive, [...]

    3. This is the first of the Willa series to land in the young adult/teen section. Willa is still inspiring with her community rent ideas and awesome skinny-punch book recommendations (a skinny-punch book being a short book that packs a punch of awesomeness). Paratore's writing always makes me want to go be a wash-a-shore in a small beach town.

    4. Love these books because they talk about books. Even though they are not too deep, they are fun reads with good characters.

    5. I loved this book! Willa proves that whatever you put your mind too you can do. It is so inspirational and makes me want to be just like Willa.

    6. The Deal: Willa's perfect summer in Bramble, Cape Cod isn't going as perfect as she hoped for. Her best friend Tina is boy crazy and she and their other friend Ruby are making Willa feel left out. Joey, Willa's boyfriend, is spending the whole summer away from her in Miami. Even her new dog, Salty, has deserted her for a boy named Will*. Only that Will claims Salty was his dog first, and that Willa is actually his sister - something Willa can't deny as they look so much alike. What's more, Will [...]

    7. I write my reviews in the 5 different categories: Cover/Title, Characters, Plot, Suspense, and Overall. I rat e each of these categories 1 to 5 (5 being the best, 1 being the worst). SPOILER FREE REVIEWCover/Title: 4 out of 5I liked the title because I thought it fit for the story. I liked the cover because it conveyed that this book would be a happy story. As Willa would say it was a "Skinny Punch" book to read. I also loved how the had quotes in it from the books that Willa was reading.Charact [...]

    8. Continue the long days of Cape Cod summer with Willa Havisham and friends. JFK is away at baseball camp, Tina & Ruby are getting closer to each other and farther away from Willa, her new-found brother has a wild theory, and who knows where Mariel is. This next installment of the Wedding Planner's Daughter series is a little heavier than the first few because of the subject of Willa's father. The only reason her step-brother came to Cape Cod in the first place was to search for their father. [...]

    9. What Willa Doesn't Have This Summer~Her boyfriend Joey (drat baseball camp!)~Her best friend Tina (too busy with Ruby stalking cute lifeguards)~Her new best friend Mariel (She's in NY with her mom)What She Does Have:~Strange British boy claiming 1) he's her half-brother and 2) their father might still be aliveWilla turns to her old standbys candy (you can't go wrong with taffy) and books to help her relax and deal with all this new complication.What I thought: Another great installment in Willa' [...]

    10. Wish i might by Coleen Murtagh Paratore is a great book. It's about Willa Harvisman, an eighteen old girl who has it all. A perfect boyfriend, an amazing new father, good friends, and a good job. Now her world is about to be turned upside down because her half brother Will, who she never knew even existed is here in cape cod looking for her and their dead dad who Will thinks might still be alive. So now Willa has to find out if Will really is her half brother or not. If her dad might still be al [...]

    11. Paratore's books, especially the Willa Havisham series, are punchy & lyrically written in a way that really draws the reader in. Willa herself is an extremely sympathetic character, & the setting - the small town of Bramble on Cape Cod - is just marvelous. All the characters are gently, lovingly well-drawn. Willa is stunned to discover the good-looking British boy she's seen about town has been purposely following her - but that's nothing compared to the shock she gets when he announces [...]

    12. Hooked on this fun to read series!!! The books are full of quotes.Willa's boyfriend is in Florida, her boyfriend is with her mother in New York, her other friend is more friends with someone else and her brother shows up.I love Willawe have a lot in common. We both digest books and they are a big part of our lives.Parts in the book that grabbed my attention:pg 18: "Skinny-punch is a phrase I invented for a book that's fairly quick to read, but has a powerful impact."pg 45 "I always feel better w [...]

    13. A quick bit of fluff. Willa's boyfriend has just taken off for a summer with his grandparents in Florida. Willa is in transition with her old best friends and with her boyfriend gone and her new best friend evicted and nowhere to be found Willa is at loose ends. Her father was 'lost at sea' - a ballooning accident- she has never known him and she is settled in with Sam, her stepfather and her mother in an utterly charming inn on Cape Cod. Out of the blue a boy arrives announcing he is her brothe [...]

    14. Can I give this less than One Star? Coleen Murtagh Paratore’s Wish I Might is a diabetic’s nightmare. Cliché and trite this slim novel features fourteen-year-old Willa Havisham in her 5th adventure. Like each of Willa’s previous books, Wish I Might blends romance and fantasy, this time unsuccessfully. Willa has just discovered her long-lost brother, unimaginatively named “Will.” And, to shoe-horn in a fantasy element, a mermaid has been spied of the coast of her Cape Cod home. The plo [...]

    15. Cute, fast read. While this is several books into a series, I had no trouble picking up the story. Best for young teens and tweens, my only complaint would be that 15 yo Willa seems, at times, much younger and too uncomplicated to be a teenager. She deals with issues to which every teen can relate, but her solutions and handlings of the situations seem very black and white. She is a character born in middle-grade fiction who is growing up in years but hasn't quite made the emotional leap to youn [...]

    16. Willa's best friend is in Broadway with her mom, and her boyfriend is at Baseball camp across the country, while her ex-best friend is hanging out with a girl Willa can't stand. Her summer seems really uneventful Until she meets Will. A boy who claims to be her brother. A boy who claims that their father Billy Havisham is still alive. I really liked this book, it had a lot of plot twists and was a great page turner.

    17. September 23,2011The magical summer that Willa knew it was going to be proved Willa right. But with her boyfriend at baseball training camp and the horrible Ruby Silver detemined to steal her best friend away it is also a hard one. And to top it off, a boy named Will shows up and claims hes her long lost brother.Good Luck Willa!!!!!!!1

    18. I really enjoyed this book because I can relate to the main character Willa. She has two mean friends and she isn't that popular. She is kinda nerdy. I also own a condo near a beach. I really like how there are twists all through the story. Some parts are sad, but I would recomend this to anyone. This is definetly a summer read!

    19. This is the first of the Willa series to land in the young adult/teen section. Willa is still inspiring with her community rent ideas and awesome skinny-punch book recommendations (a skinny-punch book being a short book that packs a punch of awesomeness). Paratore's writing always makes me want to go be a wash-a-shore in a small beach town.

    20. Wish I mightAMAZINGThis was one.of the best books I've ever read Ifinitely recommend it!!!!!I found a way to connect to the book and feel like all the characters are real I loved this book!!!

    21. This was still more of a rushed story for me, sortof like a filler except kind of short. The whole brother thing is just weird and the dad thing is sorta unclear, wouldn't that mean Willa's dad cheated on her mom or something? I dunno, this whole thing left me confused!

    22. The more I read of the Willa series, the more I like them! Coleen Paratore has a way of writing that's very lyrical, and her storytelling abilities make for a book that is not only smart, but charming. I am looking forward to reading what happens to Willa next! :)

    23. This was cute. That's all. Not a waste of time because it is a quick read but a la meme temps it was simply and only and forever just cute.More on my thoughts here:bloggingbrookeworm

    24. I really liked how the Coleen Paratore tells you abou the books Willa is reading and how all of them are listed in the back so you an find them easily instead of searching threw through the book to find them. :)

    25. Easy light story about a girl living at the beach. I like these books, even though they are intended for tweens and teens. =)
