Publisher's Summary

Be careful what you wish for....

Wilma Sturtz is invisible and miserable at school. So when an old lady on the subway offers her a wish, Wilma immediately asks for popularity - in fact, she asks to be the most popular kid at school.

Suddenly, Wilma has more friends than she can keep track of, 40 dates to the Grad Night Dance, and a secret admirer writing her love poems. Everything is great, until she realizes there's a loophole in her wish, and her time in the spotlight has almost run out.

    I would have to say it ranks in the middle but only becuase the other ones I have listened to are so amazing!


    Has The Wish turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No the opposite is true.


    What does Ariadne Meyers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    she gives the main character a funny and belivable voice


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    not really
