JUVENILE FICTION


From New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noë l comes a fun, adventure-filled, contemporary novel that poses the question what would you do if your dream life became reality? 
 
A dream is a wish your heart makes . . . when your life is in desperate need of a makeover. Nick Dashaway would know. Either he makes it big this year in seventh grade or he risks being a nobody forever.
 
Enter the Greentree Middle School Talent Show, hosted by teen sensation Josh Frost. The show might just be Nick’s ticket out of loserville. But popularity doesn’t come easy, and when Nick is forcibly ejected from the stage, he feels like he’s out of options. Desperate to avoid a permanent seat at the geek table and continued inattention from the love of his life, Nick chooses the only option he has left: he makes a wish.
 
Be careful what you wish for, the old saying goes—and Nick’s about to find out why. 

"Noël writes this Christmas comedy with lots of zing and bubbling humor. Readers familiar with Christmas movies will notice undertones of It's a Wonderful Life, even with a reference to an angel getting its wings. . . An amusing Christmas story for preteens."- -Kirkus 

"Noël ( Evermore, 2009) has crafted a quick, compelling, energetic modern-day fairy tale for every tween who has ever wished for fame. . . This is a Hollywood blockbuster waiting to happen."-- Booklist

"The text is appealing and chock-full of humor. VERDICT A unique twist on the typical holiday story, perfect for readers wondering what their dream life would be like."-- SLJ 

"Readers will enjoy getting an imaginary backstage pass to Nick’s indulgent new world, and his mix of swagger and uncertainty make him an entertaining narrator."--Publisher's Weekly

"Nick catches the spirit—and sharing that spirit isn’t a bad way for readers to while away some winter break vacation days."-- The Bulletin
