About this title

Synopsis:

Meg is a wanderer, a troublemaker. After a botched attempt to rob a pensioner's flat, Meg, along with her partner in crime, Belch, ends up in a sticky situation. Her soul is up for grabs as the divine and the demonic try every underhand ploy to claim it. Her only hope is the Wish List.

Review:

Meg Finn has led a miserable life. First, her mum died, saddling her with a useless, nasty stepfather. Then, angry and alone, Meg found herself committing acts of petty crime with dim-witted hood Belch Brennan. Finally, just as she was about to go straight to honor her sainted mum’s memory, Belch went and got them both killed as they attempted to rob crabby old Lowrie McCall. And if that wasn’t bad enough, now St. Peter and Beelzebub can’t decide which way Meg is supposed to go. She is one in a million: a soul perfectly balanced between good and evil. Now Meg’s got to go back and somehow tip the scales UP--the further, the better! To earn her wings, Meg’s been assigned to help the last person she tried to hurt (Lowrie McCall) who has a wish list of wrong choices that he wants to make right. But Beelzebub can’t stand the thought of a bad soul going good. So he sends back the soul of powerfully stupid Belch, (who went straight down without stopping) to muck things up for Meg and Lowrie. But Meg’s got smarts on her side and more than just a few tricks up her insubstantial sleeve...

At times, best-selling author Eoin Colfer’s Wish List reads like a head-on collision between Dawson’s Creek and Touched by an Angel. But rabid fans of the Artemis Fowl books won’t notice or care. This black comedy is sure to make every fantasy-reading teen’s Wish List. --Jennifer Hubert
