Brimming with humor, heart and adventure, this brand-new series created by the bestselling author of Whatever After is the magical read you have been wishing for. 

Becca Singer is having the Worst Day Ever. Her best friend, Harper, has dumped her and Becca is friendless and alone.

Then the box arrives in the mail.

Inside, Becca finds a bracelet and a mysterious note telling her to make a wish. So Becca puts on the bracelet--and why not, right?--and wishes to have friends. Lots of friends. So many friends. And just like that, the magive works. Suddenly, EVERYONE wants to be Becca's BFF, from all the kids at school to the teachers, to Becca's own mom. As things quickly spin out of control, Becca starts to wonder, Is this wish a curse? 

Welcome to the start of a thrilling new series that will take readers across the country as the magical bracelet gets shipped to a different girl in each book. Make a wish, and pass it on.
