As You Wish by Chelsea Sedoti

I really liked this book. It’s about Eldon, a boy who lives in what appears to be an ordinary town called Madison. The town has a secret that no outsider knows. Everyone who lives in Madison gets to make a wish on their sixteenth birthday. They wish in a wishing cave and the wish comes true soon. As Eldon approaches his wish day he doesn’t know what to wish for. You read how Eldon talks to people about their wishes and how that wish helped or hurt them. It’s a really well written book. There is cussing in the book. I liked how you got to know about the town and how the wishes affected the residents’ lives after they made their wish.
