    As always, Melanie Dickerson is creative in her twists and new takes on fairy tales and history! The Orphan's Wish gives new life to characters like Aladdin and Abu, while adding in the beloved royal family from previous Hagenheim books (although Kirstyn's older siblings don't play much of a part, as the main focus is on Kirstyn herself). One of the things I appreciated most about this story was Aladdin's struggle with appearing "perfect" to othe...

    I can’t wait to read this!! The cover looks amazing and I love that it’s going to be an Aladdin’s retelling!!!

    I see that this too received the white wash treatment, in which a story set in the middle east (Persia to be precise) now features a blue-eyed, blonde Caucasian as the heroine.

    Another win by Melanie Dickerson. Although I would never have guessed that the character of Aladdin would make an appearance in Hagenheim, Dickerson made his story come to life in a new and exciting way. Although at first I was hoping for an Arabian Princess as the heroine in this story, Kirstyn is a lovely character that you can't help but want to be friends with. Aladdin coming to terms with his past was a great storyline, as it shows how our c...

    You know when you are reading a book and wonder what else could possibly happen but you are only half way through the book so apparently there is something? This is one of those books. And then wow, the second half of the book each page just gets better and better. The characters are all well developed. Some you love and some you absolutely hate. No fluff here. I loved Aladdin's integrity even from such a young age. I've enjoyed all of Ms Dickers...
