I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

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.


I’m actually liking these covers. They’re very wispy like and remind me of the story.

Initial Thoughts

I was a little worried about starting this one because we switch main characters but all the other characters are still there. I wasn’t sure how that was going to turn out because usually I hate it when the author switches the point of view.

My New BFF

I adored Kim in this book! I’m glad we got to see more of her because she’s a very interesting character. I’m sure most of us don’t know anyone struggling with brain damage but still able to function normally which I think is why this book could appeal to a lot of people. I was curious about her in the first book and now I feel like we could be best friends. I loved how determined she was to be independent even though she struggles with brain damage. I think she’s a great character to look up to.

My Crush

The romance in these books are really weird. There was kind of a love triangle in this book but not really. Another thing I won’t spoil for you! You’ll have to read it. I think that Sean would be my crush in this book. He was another determined character only with a really sad ending. He struggled the most in this book but he never wasted his time complaining about it. He stayed happy until the very end! I admire that.

Writing Style

I found this book a lot better than the first. The characters were written a lot better and the plot had more to it. Not only were with with Kim during her struggles but we were with Sean as well. I did find Grant and Lacey’s relationship to be extremely weird in this book. I found it shouldn’t have gotten as much attention as it did.

Closing Thoughts

I feel like from the ending of this book that there will most likely be a third. It was really nice seeing another Being in this book. There are more out there I guess! They both did different things so which I’m glad for or else this book would have gotten boring quick. I did enjoy this book a lot more than the first which hardly ever happens! I’d still recommend this book to everyone but especially those who won’t cry their eyes out in a public place while reading this. Just a heads up.

  1. I also liked this one better than the first one mostly because I like Kim more than Lacey and I loved her «relationship» with Sean. I do hope that we get a book about Claire because right now I think that she really needs a genie to help her

  2. aentee @ read at midnight

    The premise with the MC suffering from memory issues sounds fascinating, I’ll have to look into this series. Love the sound of the supernatural twist as well. Great review!
