"Genies for the modern age, with passion, darkness, and heart". When Margo McKenna used her fourth wish to save Oliver's life, she was turned into a genie herself. Instead of ending up somewhere entirely new, she is still in her hometown. Not only does her new master, Ryan, attend the same high school as she does, he's also a notorious jerk. Oliver tries to help Margo learn the ropes, but being yanked out of her life whenever her master calls and having to appear in a different body really sucks. Especially when Ryan makes a wish for Margo's best friend to fall in love with him against her will.

Review quote

"Ribar deals with surprisingly heavy themes in this sequel, despite the lighter-than-air premise, including the pressure to conform, the construction of self and the ever-evolving nuance of what is the "right" thing. Despite its fantastic drapery, the truths this novel reveals are so real it may even make readers a bit uncomfortable--that's quite an achievement." -- Kirkus Reviews "Ribar has delivered fans a fun romantic read with some deliciously exciting paranormal elements (shape-shifting anyone?) while casually tackling bisexuality, consent, and the importance of balancing power with humanity." -- School Library Journal PRAISE FOR THE ART OF WISHING
"Stands head and shoulders above the competition because of its main character Margo . . . a decisive, strong-willed heroine." "For anyone who thought Disney's Aladdin was the last word on genies, think again."--Booklist "[With] a genie like no other . . . this lighthearted book is a well-rounded combination of humor, romance and paranormal suspense, with likable characters and easy-to-believe dialogue."--Kirkus "The love between a musician and her genie is so bittersweet, so utterly human, it makes magic feel real--a feat all paranormal romances attempt, but few achieve."--Jeri Smith-Ready, author of Shine "Rich with romance, magic, and action, this novel will captivate teens."--School Library Journal
