Everyone makes mistakes. Crissy’s just might kill her.
Crissy Sheets is trapped. Her best friend wants her to break up with her boyfriend. Her family is excited that she found such a great catch. Crissy thinks Brad is the one but wonders if he really loves her. The last thing she wants is to end up pregnant and alone at seventeen like her mom and older sister did.
Terrified by the future she’s headed for, Crissy makes a wish for a better life. Just a few desperate words uttered as a star shoots by in the night sky. She knows it won’t work, nothing can change fate. But then Desiree, a hippie genie who’s nearly given up on magic, arrives to grant Crissy’s wish by showing her a different path.
Crissy was warned that her life could get worse before it got better. But when things go from bad to worse to nightmare, will Crissy’s wish be enough to save her?
My Secret Book Spot – 4 stars – “I enjoyed this book. I did read the first one but like the fact it can also be read as a stand-alone.”
Rebecca M – 4 stars – Thought provoking… “Shawn McGuire does an excellent job of showing how a person can delude themselves into thinking that abuse is their fault. (It isn’t–EVER. That’s one of the best messages of this book, and Crissy eventually does get it, thank goodness.) Crissy starts her journey by making a wish, but ultimately she’s the one who has to make the conscious decision to change. Her journey is empowering and inspiring, and though parts of the ending are a bit simplistic, overall I really like what Ms. McGuire did with her character.”
Kristi Wadewitz – Four Stars – “Loved the story! Well written.”

Jen – 5 stars – Looking forward to the next book! Great author! – “Excellent book for teens. This one is based on abusive relationships. The book also has the softest cover I have ever felt.”
