*I was provided with an e-book of this book by the publisher via NetGalley, but my review is all my own opinion and thoughts*
“Careful what you wish for. It just might come true.
In the forbidden West Woods, Ava stumbles on the secret fountain that has granted wishes to St. Augustus students for generations. Unknowingly, she watches the coin she tosses disappear and with it the world around her as she knows it.
In a quest to undo the damage she’s done, she and alumni kid Ethan break every campus rule unravelling a tangled web of history. Ava discovers that what’s right isn’t always clear and finds herself torn between a love she’s always known and one she has yet to explore.”
Ava: I enjoyed Ava as a character, she is relatable and overall a great point of view to follow. I like the fact that she has a passion for swimming and that family also plays a part in her life, even though she lives in the dorms of her high school.
Ethan: He was okay. I didn’t dislike him but I wasn’t really a big fan of him as well. He does help Ava out with her problem, even though she doesn’t really have any prove for it. And with that he goes out of his way to help her solve it.
The book is written in third person, but only follows Ava. I really enjoyed ready this Magical Realism only the romance was a big NO for me. Ava was already in a relationship when she starts to get feelings for Ethan, which I am okay with. But in my opinion she should have broken up with her current boyfriend before going with Ethan. The end was also a bit dissatisfying for me, I really enjoyed the rest of the book but the ending just didn’t feel right to me. But like I said I really enjoyed the rest of the book if we are not talking about the romance and the ending. I really enjoyed the idea for the story and the execution of it.
Even though I wasn’t a fan of the ending and the romance between the main characters, I really enjoyed reading this. I enjoyed the concept on which the story was built on and overall it did it justice. I enjoyed reading from Ava’s perspective of the story and the way she dealt with the problem at hand.
