I received an advanced copy of What You Wish For by Katherine Center from St. Martin’s Press. This was a classic Katherine Center book—light-hearted even though it dealt with heavy topics, easy-to-read (I read it in just a few sittings), and unputdownable (is that a word? According to spell check it is.)
Thank you St. Martin’s Press for the copy and the chance to review this fun book!

SUMMARY: Samantha Casey wears a lot of polka dots. She rocks bright red lipstick. She stands out amongst the crowd. She lives by the belief that life should be lived.
But when her beloved friend, surrogate father, and principal of the school she works for passes away suddenly, her happy-go-lucky world is shaken to its core.
Despite the tragedy, life must go on. A new principal is brought in to lead the beloved elementary school Samantha has finally found her place in. But this new guy is not what this fun-loving school is expecting. He’ss rigid. He’s stern. And he wants to cover all hand-painted walls with institutional grey.
If this weren’t bad enough, Samantha knows this guy. She used to be in love with him. The old him. The guy who wore silly ties and ran around barefoot.
As Samantha tries to stop him from ruining the school she loves so much, she also tries to figure out, what the hell happened to him??
