A big thank you to Edelweiss and Sourcebooks Fire for an ARC of this book. I also want to thank Bookish First for publishing an excerpt which piqued my interest in As You Wish.

In Madison, Nevada, you get one wish when you turn eighteen. What you wish for has a huge impact on your life after and also on the lives of those around you. As Eldon Wilkes draws closer to his eighteenth birthday, everyone wants to know what he will wish for. As Eldon's birthday looms ever nearer, we watch him chapter by chapter as he approaches that critical point in his life.

Be careful what you wish for could not shine more clearly than through this thought-provoking story. For Madison residents, their wish is their god. So many make their wish and then realize that they did not know what was best for them after all. The book is filled with stories of former wish makers and the unexpected consequences of their wish and how their life is not what they expected. The happiest person in the book is Norie who has been engaged in an earnest although misguided search for the real God.
