The Art of Wishing by Lindsay Ribar is Munch-Worthy

The Art of Wishing

He can grant her wishes, but only she can save his life.

Margo McKenna has a plan of attack for everything, from landing the lead in her high school musical to dealing with her increasingly absent parents. But when she finds herself in possession of a genie's ring and the opportunity to make three wishes, she doesn't know what to do. Especially since Oliver—not blue-skinned, not bottle-dwelling, but a genie nonetheless—can see more than what she's willing to show him. With one peek into her mind, he can see the wishes that even Margo herself doesn't know she wants.

But Oliver comes with more than just mind-reading abilities, a flair for magic, and the prettiest eyes Margo's ever seen. Someone from his past is hunting him—someone bent on killing him, along with all the other genies in the world, for the sake of honor. And as Margo soon discovers, it will take more than three wishes to save him.

A whole lot more.

Bet you haven't read a YA book about genies yet—but that's okay, because I haven't either. But here's our chance! Ribar's debut novel is all about one girl's relationship with, you guessed it, a genie. I'm quite eager to see where she takes this!

With regards to the cover, I have to say that I love all of it, especially the lettering and design of the title. The script is just fancy enough without being distracting or hard to read, and the little firework sparks are just delightful.
