For Charli Blake, being seventeen is a tough gig.

She's been branded a troublemaker, her reputation is in tatters and she's stuck in Pipers Cove, a speck of a town on the coast of Tasmania.

Thankfully, it's temporary. Her lifelong dream of travelling the world is just months away from becoming reality. All she has to do is ride out the last few months of high school, which is easier said than done thanks to a trio of mean girls known as The Beautifuls.

When Adam Décarie arrives in town, all the way from New York, life takes an unexpected turn. His arrival sets off a chain of events that alters her life forever, convincing her of one thing. Fate brought him to her.

Saving Wishes is the story of a girl who doesn't quite fit the life she's living, and the boy who helps her realise why.

Charlotte Blake or Charli was seventeen living in a small town of Pipers Cove in Tasmania. She and her best friend, Nicole planned to leave home and travel around the world after school end. But things started to change when Adam Décarie, a Parisienne live in New York, arrived in town to visit his cousin.

This was an enjoyable read. I love how it was written in Charli’s narrative. She can be funny at times. Adam was a really nice guy. He’s gorgeous and sweet. I love how he would sometimes speak French and Charli couldn’t understand it (even though Charlie took French at school). I love reading Charli’s interaction with other people, especially Adam, and Alex (her brother). She sounded real and alive.

Saving Wishes started off a bit slow, and picked up real quick. There were a few twists towards the end that caught me by surprise.  I really did not see it coming. G.J. Walker-Smith did a really great job at writing this book. I just couldn’t wait to read the second book when I reached the final page. I need to know about Charli’s journey to see the world, the La La Land and Adam. Definitely need more Adam. Saving Wishes is definitely a great heartwarming read.

I received an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
