Down With The Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn

Blurb from Goodreads:
There's a reason they say "be careful what you wish for." Just ask the girl who wished to be thinner and ended up smaller than Thumbelina, or the boy who asked for "balls of steel" and got them-literally. And never wish for your party to go on forever. Not unless you want your guests to be struck down by debilitating pain if they try to leave.

These are things Lennie only learns when it's too late-after she brings some of her uncles' moonshine to a party and toasts to dozens of wishes, including a big wish of her own: to bring back her best friend, Dylan, who was abducted and murdered six months ago.

Lennie didn't mean to cause so much chaos. She always thought her uncles' moonshine toast was just a tradition. And when they talked about carrying on their "important family legacy," she thought they meant good old-fashioned bootlegging.

Things I liked:
1) Lennie-  I like how naive she was about what she could do. Also she was really relatable in my opinion.

2) The Uncles- They were rather interesting to say the least. I felt like they were so weird but for some odd reason I really liked them a lot.

3) I found this book to be rather funny. Not sure if that was a good thing but I was okay with it. 

Things I was not fond of:
1) Although I really like the premise of this book it was rather unrealistic and most of the time really just made no sense.

2) The ending I was not fond of. This is what stopped me from giving this book a 5 stars.

My rating: 💜💜💜💜

*I received this book from Edelweiss on a read and review basis*
