Release Day Blitz: Dying Wish by Maragaret McHeyzer

Title: Dying Wish
Author: Margaret McHeyzer
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: January 8, 2017


I have three major loves in my life: my family, my best friend Becky, and ballet. Elijah Turner is quickly becoming the fourth.

He's been around as long as I can remember. But now he's much more than just the annoying guy at school.

My life was working out perfectly...until it got turned upside down.

Having not personally read any of Margaret McHeyzer (I know I have no excuse why)I wasn’t sure what to expect and this was compounded by the fact that I hadn’t read the blurb so I REALLY had no clue what to expect. However as soon as I read the prologue I knew I was in for an emotional ride in ‘Dying Wish’ and I wasn’t wrong, 5 stars.

With a title like ‘Dying Wish’ I should have been prepared I guess for the story to come but I wasn’t, this was a lovely but poignant tale that was amazingly written. Not a person who really gets emotional enough to cry at many books well this book was one that managed to break through and had me shedding tears.

A story about 3 friends and the love, loyalty, friendship and loss that they have to deal with it will leave a mark on your heart for sure. This is one of the hardest books I have had to review as I don’t want to explain why I cried or why I loved it as I couldn’t do it in only a few words I would end up giving too much away and I don’t want to do that as I truly think this is a book that you should read without any preconceived thoughts or ideas.

Margaret McHeyzer has written an amazingly beautiful and heart breaking book that I think will take me a while to get over. I hope you trust me and pick this book up as it is a must read. I am sorry that I haven’t read any of Margaret’s books before but from now on I will never hesitate to pick up one of her books.

Author Bio

There's something about the written word that is pure magic. 

Possibly it's the fact there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering they're capable to change our lives. 

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds? 

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'. 

Normal is subjective. 

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.
