The Fountain, by Suzy Vadori

4 Watch what you wish for stars!!

The fountain

This was such an interesting take on a wishing fountain.  What if what you wished for came true?? How does it affect everyone else?? In this book Ava definitely finds out what happens when you wish on a whim.

Ava has transferred to her mother and father’s alma mater, she is refereed to as an alumni kid.  Even though she didn’t start until her junior year. She felt she needed a connection to her mom who has passed away.  Ava of course encounters the not so nice Courtney who seems to be doing things just to make her year a little bit harder.  (or make her leave all together). After one of her rougher days Ava comes upon a fountain in the forest and makes a wish.  She wishes that the school has never heard of Courtney or her family.  When Ava returns after staying with her Gram for the weekend Courtney has mysteriously disappeared with no one ever having heard of her before.  This leads to lots of trials and tribulations for Ava about should she try to undo her wish?? The only problem is she can no longer find the fountain?  In her search for the fountain she becomes better acquainted with Ethan (another Alumni kid and can we say adorable??)  Ethan is doing all he can to help Ava find the well and wish her old wish away.  Of course nothing like a little love triangle thrown in there… because Ava has a boyfriend named Lucas…back home… oooppsss.  Will she be able to wish her wish away.. or will Courtney be forever gone?

There was only a couple flaws I found in this book.. I wish we could’ve delved more into Ava’s family life I feel like it was just a drop in the bucket.  Also Mrs. Kirk… why is she so obsessed with the darn fountain?? What happens with her??? I feel like I could’ve just keep reading and reading but it sadly ended.

I did however enjoy the way Suzy Vadori ended the book with a little glimpse into how Ava was satisfied with the decision she made.. All in all a really cute read!!

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley via Evil Alter Ego Press for my honest review.

The book Blurb and Stuff!!
