What You Wish For by Katherine Center
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press • Published On: July 14, 2020
Katherine Center’s latest book, What You Wish For, is out today and I enjoyed this book so much! Katherine has quickly become one of my favorite authors because her books have everything you want in them, characters you root for, mixed in with some drama and romance. And her books have some of the prettiest covers!
In What You Wish For, Samantha loves her job as an elementary school librarian. When the school loses its beloved principal, the new principal Duncan is not only a former colleague, but also an unrequited crush of Sam’s, and he is not how she remembers him. Gone is the sweet and funny guy and in its place is a man obsessed with school safety. As Duncan sets out to destroy everything Sam loves, she tries to find a way to save things and remind Duncan who he once was.
Like Katherine’s previous books, this quickly drew me in and it was hard to put down. I really enjoyed the character of Samantha, she is flawed and doesn’t shy away from it. She is someone you would want to be friends with and have on your side. And Duncan, as much as you want to dislike him at first, you just can’t when you find out more about what he experienced in the years him and Sam we’re apart.
Highly recommend reading What You Wish For. Throughout the book, Sam talks about finding joy, which is what reading this book does. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for an advance digital copy in exchange for an honest review.
