The Wishnik

The Wishnik - Kurt Newton I won this copy at the Goodreads Giveaway.

Most people think it. Whether in seriously or in jest, whether you admit it or not, at some time in your life you have wished that someone would just die. Kenny wished for the same thing concerning his abusive father and life just seemed so wonderful after that. But what happens when the "thing" that granted your wish wants something in return? You just have to read the book to find out.

The writing was well paced and the story engaging although I would have liked to know a bit more about the characters, especially Kenny, his father and his brother Jack and their relationship. And I admit that every time I read about the creature, it would remind me of the movie "Critters". All in all, a nice quick read when you have a couple of hours to kill.

Just remember..."Be careful what you wish for."
