Careful what you wish for…

Mae Lin Zhou has struggled to live up to her father’s expectations all her life. She wishes just once she could make him proud, and when her dying grandmother chooses her to carry the family’s ability to make luck, she thinks this is her chance. If she can learn to control her new power.

Whisked away to Kismet Academy, Mae Lin finds herself thrust into a world of djinn, leprechauns, and wishers. Everyone seems so confident in their gifts and their place, leaving her feeling lost and alone until she finds an ally in leprechaun outcast Siobhan and a potential boyfriend in fellow wisher Lee.

But there is something sinister calling to Mae Lin, the lure of a long buried secret on the grounds of the academy. One her grandmother warned her about in her last fortune-- an angry djinn more powerful than any before him with a vendetta against her family. And he just might make Mae Lin break the one rule at Kismet Academy: never say I wish.

I've read several books written by Sarah Biglow; she is becoming one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of her books. This is the first book in the Kismet Academy Series; it is a stand-alone short story. The story is about Mae Lin Zhou; she has always done as her father expected. When her grandmother was dying she chose her to carry on the family’s ability to make luck but also putting her against an angry djinn with a vendetta against her family. I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

This was a wonderfully done story, it was a great plot and I enjoyed getting to know the characters. I appreciated the use of POC and LGBTQ characters it felt like a natural thing instead of just shoehorned in. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
