The Last Wish of Sasha Cade by Cheyanne Young
I was promised a tear-jerker with this book but it didn't get to my cold, cold heart. Sasha is an amazing friend and I wish I was the kind of person who would be thinking about everyone else's happiness if I were dying but I suspect I'm not. I couldn't even cry during the many scenes that were obviously tailor-made for crying. I"m not saying it's a bad book or that I didn't enjoy it at all, just that it wasn't the emotional read I expected. Instead, it was a good story of friendship with some almost magical realism thrown in. I wish that things weren't so pat in the back half of the book and I wish that Sasha's parents could've seen the light without Elijah getting into quite so much trouble, but I can still appreciate the happy ending. Good, but not great.
