Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wish #1: To have my own television show.
Wish #2: For Eddie to be un-handicapped. (Eddie is my twin Brother.)
Wish #3: I dont really want anything else this year (except maybe to go out with Billy Meier).
 
Do wishes really come true? When Trudy Walker sees the ad from the local cable station, she truly believes they do. The station is looking to air demo tapes of shows created by and for teens. This could be Trus big Break!
     But lately Tru is distracted by Wish #2. She spends hours researching cures for Eddie online and filming his daily routine. If Tru becomes a star—if she just grows up—will she outgrow Eddie? Can she pursue her dreams and still be true to herself? Or is it all just wishful thinking

Synopsis:

Enough about you. Lets talk about me.
