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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Rebellious teenager Charli Blake is dying to escape her dreary, rain-soaked hometown on Australia’s Tasmanian coast. But when a bright-eyed, idealistic New Yorker cruises into town in his fancy Audi and nearly hits her, Charli’s fate takes a dramatic left turn. Author G.J. Walker-Smith imbues her petulant character with spicy wit and disarming self-deprecation. Saving Wishes taps into our deep-seated desire to follow our dreams, find love, and ultimately learn self-acceptance.
A really good read. This book absolutely held my interest, and I would recommend it highly.
I love this series. It’s so wholesome, heartfelt, and real. The author does and amazing job and I can’t wait for Stone Roses I know it’s going to be worth the wait! What I’ve read from the short preview I just wanted to hear more, I’m so excited to read it. I 10/10 recommend the series 💛
Love it! Still luv it!!
Couldn't put it down! Re-read years later than the first time & it's still the most awesome story ever! Gonna keep going thru the series!
