Book Summary (On Book):

Ever since Viola's boyfriend broke up with her, she has spent her days silently wishing—to have someone love her again and, more importantly, to belong again—until one day she inadvertently summons a young genie out of his world and into her own. He will remain until she makes three wishes.
Jinn is anxious to return home, but Viola is terrified of wishing, afraid she will not wish for the right thing, the thing that will make her truly happy. As the two spend time together, the lines between master and servant begin to blur, and soon Jinn can't deny that he's falling for Viola. But it's only after Viola makes her first wish that she realizes she's in love with Jinn as well . . . and that if she wishes twice more, he will disappear from her life—and her world—forever.

Wow! What to say about this book? I got it today, aka christmas, and i finished it today (because I have no life). It's about, as the summary says, a girl who summons a jinn, who is like her own little genie here to grant the girl, Viola, 3 wishes.

The starting of this book, for me, was great. The point of this book began from the start and it kept you wanting more from the first words. The characters (Viola, Jinn, & Lawrence) were all perfectly scripted: the gay exboyfriend, the annoying but totally in love with you boy, and the one who feels broken. For Lawrence (Viola's bestfriend/ex), you'd think you only get to see him from Viola's point-of-view, but no. Jinn also has chapters in the book which makes everything, including characters like Viola & Lawrence, more clear. So, I really enjoyed seeing into the two main characters heads.

In all, I have heard mostly great stuff about this book, and whoever liked this book was right to, because to me, it was lacking nothing. Everything was there, and all the little extra pieces of Viola's/Jinn's lifes just made the story more exciting (for example: the talk of roses & Viola's love for painting).

I rate this book 9 1/2 Live Zombies. (Dead Zombies are baddd.)
