Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sixteen-year-old Lana Morris wishes her life were different, that she were somewhere else, someone else. Her foster mother wants her gone, she's stuck taking care of the other kids in the house, she longs to become closer to her foster father, and the only cool people around refuse to acknowledge her. Then Lana stumbles into Miss Hekkity's mysterious shop, and she begins to realize that she might actually have the power to change things—to make some of her wishes come true. But wishing isn't always as harmless as it seems. . . .

Award-winning authors Laura and Tom McNeal weave a warmhearted and suspenseful story about the power—and danger—of a wish.

Synopsis:

Knowing her foster mother doesn't want her around and forced to take care of her kids all day, sixteen-year-old Lana wishes she could change her life, but when she goes to Miss Hekkity's mysterious shop and discovers she has hidden wishing powers, Lana realizes that getting everything one wants has its repercussions.

Synopsis:

For sixteen-year-old Lana life is often difficult, with a flirtatious foster father, an ice queen foster mother, a houseful of special needs children to care for, and bullies harrassing her, until the day she ventures into an antique shop and buys a drawing set that may change her life.
