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, forty 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.
“A highly entertaining, funny, poignant modern fairy tale.” –Kirkus Reviews
