About this title


Everyone has a dark side. Mandy’s just moved in with her. The last time sixteen-year-old Mandy Matteo broke a rule, her sister died. Since that day she has done only what was expected of her, but life as a goody-goody has made her so boring her friends have all but abandoned her. Desperate, Mandy makes a wish to simply be happy. Enter Desiree, a hippie Wish Mistress (aka a genie). Years of only granting and never receiving wishes have left her bitter, and allowing Mandy to right her biggest wrong—the exact thing Desiree would wish for—only makes things worse. Still, she grants the wish and happiness arrives for Mandy in the form of Lexi, her childhood imaginary friend come to life. Magical wishes have conditions though: Once started, the wish cannot be altered or revoked and when Mandy is content with her life again, Lexi must go back to where she came from. But Lexi loves being alive, and she’ll do whatever it takes to stay that way.

About the Author:

Shawn McGuire is the author of young adult, speculative fiction novels that blend contemporary settings with a touch of fantasy and magic. She started writing after seeing the first Star Wars movie (that’s episode IV) as a kid: she couldn’t wait for the next one so wrote her own episodes. Sadly, those notebooks are long lost, but her desire to write is as strong now as it was then. She grew up in the beautiful Mississippi River town of Winona, Minnesota, the small town that inspired the setting for Sticks and Stones and the upcoming Break My Bones. After graduating college she moved to the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin (Go Pack Go!) where she lived for many years. She and her family now call Colorado home and when not writing or reading, Shawn enjoys cooking and baking, crafts, interior decorating, and spending time hiking and camping in the spectacular Rocky Mountains.
