Golden Hair

The Forbidden Wish

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

A retelling of "Aladdin". Sort of. You will recognize rather more tropes from the Disney version than from any older version (three wishes only, Aladdin's an orphan, etc.) -- but then it shakes them into a new story at least as distant from Disney as it was from the older ones.
