Meg's not such a bad kid, but she hasn't exactly been an angel either, so the tally for her "good" and "evil" deeds are dead even. Her only chance for tipping the scales to salvation is by going back to earth and doing some good; specifically, helping Lowrie, the old guy she tried to rob. He's got a wish list of life regrets to be set right and only so much time to do it. But even if Meg can persuade Lowrie to get mixed up with her, she's going to have to deal with an even scarier, undead Belch who's definitely on the side of the Devil.
A wild journey to the unexpected hereafter, The Wish List is a heartwarming tale of a young girl's last chance, and the love she will need to, quite literally, redeem herself.

"A cheeky look at life after death and how the ethical decisions made on earth influence one's ending up in heaven or hell...the moral underpinnings of the story are presented in an interesting, amusing way. Surprisingly thought-provoking." (Booklist)
If you like Eoin Colfer's other children novels, you will definitely like this one. It has a heartfelt twang about it with the typical Colfer wittiness. Defintely worth the listen. Beautifully narrated.
This is one of the best narrarated books I've listened too. The narrarator does the accents for each character so you know who is talking. It is a wonderful book with a great ending!
I loved it, it was a touching story. I like James Wilby's performance and I like all the other books by Eoin Colfer. --. TS Hanks
