A Novel By Alexandra Bullen Wish Characters Olivia And Violet The book Wish takes place in the present day. The setting of the story takes place in different areas of San Francisco. In the story Olivia just moved to the city with her family, so all the places she visits are new to her. Some places she visits throughout the story are, local farmers markets, museums, small coffee shops, old fashion movie theaters, vintage shops , and the Golden Gate bridge. The story also takes place in Olivia's small apartment building and her, down to earth, school. San Francisco Pictures Conflict Olivia and Violet are the main characters in the book Wish. Olivia and Violet are identical twin sisters. Both girls have red-blond hair and grey blue eyes. These two twin sisters look exactly alike but have very different personalities. While Violet is popular and outgoing, Olivia is quiet and keeps to herself. Resolution In the story Olivia gets invited to a big party, she has nothing to wear so she explores her small town until she finds a small boutique, named the
" Mariposa. " In the store, a girl named Posey, gives Olivia a special dress. Olivia goes to the party wearing the beautiful dress. When she is at the party Olivia doesn't know what to do, or who to talk to, so she decides to go home. Now, more then ever, Olivia misses her sister. She knows that Violet would be able to help her in a situation like this. When Olivia is driving home in a taxi she starts to cry and then out loud she says " I wish I had my sister back."

Book Review Wish is an amazing book that I really enjoyed reading. I loved the details and all the characters in the story. One of my favorite parts of this story is when Olivia's twin sister Violet comes back. I really liked this part of the story because it was such a happy moment for both of the characters. I also enjoyed the setting of the story. San Francisco is one of my favorite cities, so it was interesting to read a book that took place there. I am really happy I read this book and I look forward to reading the sequel "Wishful Thinking" In the story Olivia's Twin sister Violet dies. The whole family is depressed and doesn't know how to move on. Olivia's mother decides to move the family to San Francisco so they can forget about Violet's death and start a new life. Even though Olivia is in a new place, all she can do is think about her dead sister. Olivia also has problems adjusting to her new school and making friends. Summary About The Author The End!
