Millicent is a fourteen-year-old girl with an incredible power. Millicent can do magic, and when she is fifteen she will have a wish that will absolutely have to come true. Of course, what should the wish be? Millicent comes to an extreme conflict. Should she use her wish for friendship, brotherhood, or for something she would want?

I liked this book because it was fairly fast- paced and mentions the dangers of drugs several times.

SECOND REVIEW

Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  RC

In the story, a girl named Millicent is the main character. In her family, there is magic. Even thuogh the family is magical, it is in a modern American town. Millicent is faced with all sorts of problems, such as famiy arguments, a shifty friend, and a dangerous criminal. In the end, Millicent needs to make a crucial choice; family or friendship.

I didn't really like this book. It was really hard to get into. There were some interesting parts, but the book was very dull. The whole plot of the story somehow annoyed me. I think it was the fact that it tried to be something like Harry Potter, with modern day witchcraft. I also didn't really enjoy the author's style of writing. I thought the vocabulary and the writing technique was not very challenging.
