I read Jackson Pearce s As You Wish back to back with Malinda Lo s ASH, and I m going to write about what an interesting experience that was when we review the books at length next week on the Beautiful Creatures site Quickly, though, it s amazing how smart and how different and how completely excellent two talented twists on loosely the same genre can be More on that to come Jackson Pearce is a lightning fast genius, funny, slick, who puts very real teen characters in the midst of a rollicking magical adventure That s hard to do When you re reading, the book itself is the jinn, serving up so much wish fulfillment that it rightly earns the As You Wish title Don t be fooled into thinking that the lightness of the tone or the likeably comic beats of the story imply in any way that Jackson Pearce is a lightweight JP is noth
I ve admired Jackson as a writer before I even read her novel And now that I ve actually read one of her novels, the admiration continues She s a genius Funny, off the wall, talented writer I loved Viola I saw so much of myself in her, it was scary Remembering how it feels to be absolutely invisible, and not even being able to see yourself clearly Very real teen characters, dealing with even realistic situations, you know, despite the whole magical aspect As You Wish is a light and fun read, but at the same time it s very thought provoking That so me is what made it so great I just thoroughly enjoyed it It s one of those books that I wouldn t mind reading again and again Exceptional characters, exceptional plot, exception writing I can t wait to get my hands on Jackson s next novel.
With well developed characters and a unique, seamlessly written plot, Pearce lends weight to what could be, in less deft hands, a chick lit cliche Instead, As You Wish is a quick, enchanting read with unexpected depth and subtle but important messages about identity, self respect, and what it means to really belong A fantastic book for avid and reluctant readers alike
