Millicent's fourteenth birthday won't be an ordinary day. In her family, turning fourteen means receiving a magical Gift: the ability to make one wish in life that will come true.

But Millicent isn't sure she's ready for that kind of power. As her birthday draws closer, she realizes more and more how dangerous her magic is, and how difficult the choices ahead will be. Struggling with secrets, love, and betrayal, in the end Millicent has to make the hardest decision of all.

About the Author:

Readers have come to know Ann Rinaldi for her richly satisfying historical fiction. Eight of her novels have been named ALA Best Books for Young Adults, including Time Enough for Drums, The Last Silk Dress, Break with Charity, and Wolf by the Ears. Author of more than thirty books for young readers, including a book in the Dear America series, she was awarded the National History Award from the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1994.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9-There's a lot packed into this contemporary coming-of-age novel, including elements of magic and mystery, and strong themes of what friendship and family really mean. As she approaches her birthday, Millicent must decide how and if she wants to use the magical powers that run in her family. At 14, she will be able to have a single wish granted, as long as she avoids telling a lie until then. While these decisions approach, Millicent also starts going to school for the first time and makes her first real friend outside her close-knit family. This family, introduced in a prefatory "Cast of Characters" chapter, includes her much older brother, Mac, who is responsible for raising his younger siblings since their parents' separation, and is the local chief of police. Mac's no-nonsense approach to life earns both respect and frustration from Millicent. When both get involved in stopping a series of neighborhood thefts, their contentious relationship comes to a head. Though magic is a big part of Millicent's world, the novel really centers more around her relationship with Mac. With such a large cast of characters and sometimes scattered plot threads, though, it takes a while for the story to get moving. The mixture of magic and family dynamics is intriguing, and the eventual conclusion is fairly satisfying, but some readers may lose interest before then.
