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. Not my favorite book from this author but an OK read I could have done without all the kissy kissy boyfriend stuff since what 8th grade girl needs to have a boyfriend Not what I want for my daughters But the overall message of the book to just be who you are and not focus on performing for people that you want to impress is a good one

The WishAdmirer 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 ou. This book by Gail Carson Levine is different from many of her books that I've read and I do seem to be on a kick of reading a whole lot by this author For one thing the setting is contemporary NYC not a magical mythical kingdom that seems to be somewhere in the medieval past Secondly the main character is not a princess or otherwise royal She's just a regular eighth grade girlHowever like with other books by Gail Carson Levine there is magic a fairy or a witch it's never fully explained and a lesson to be learned The lesson here is one about popularity with a sublesson of being true to one's self I think both lessons are presented well no preaching but the point comes acrossI enjoyed this one which is medium size by the way
