    Megan is starting 7th grade at a new school, and she's determined to leave her awkward, nerdy past behind, but middle school has a way of upending plans. Caught between two rivals before she even makes it to her first class, Megan has to use her wits to try and rescue her social status, but her wits aren't helping much. Just when social disaster seems certain, Megan happens to wish on a magic clock at 11:11 exactly, and mysterious, wonderful things start happening.

    Megan is starting 7th grade at a new school, and she's determined to leave her awkward, nerdy past behind, but middle school has a way of upending plans. Caught between two rivals before she even makes it to her first class, Megan has to use her wits to try and rescue her social status, but her wits aren't helping much. Just when social disaster seems certain, Megan happens to wish on a magic clock at 11:11 exactly, and mysterious, wonderful things start happening.

    If only magic didn't come with such a high cost.

    An absolutely charming romp through the intricacies of middle school politics, crushes and the desire to fit in, mixed with magic and math and mayhem. Against the poignant backdrop of a first year without mom, and a sister and dad who are struggling to cope as well, this story does a great job of wrapping everything up in a satisfying package.

    I strongly recommend for tweens and teens. It's possible that the fashion-related elements will discourage some boys from reading, but that's their loss if it does. The embrace of STEM is very welcome.

    Five stars!

    Won't be released until February, but go ahead and pre-order it for your favorite teen today.

    Won a copy of this. For middle school age.

    Megan starts at a new school and is late to her very first class. Already school had started 2 weeks ago.

    Naturally she wants to fit in. But she isn't a real outgoing type to make friends. She spots a clock on the wall in her classroom & reminds her of something that her Grandmother did years ago (made a wish when it was 11:11).

    The wish is something that seems rather odd. Will this help Megan fit in?

    Lots may be able to relate to her story. I know I switched schools several times when young. Middle school grades not that easy to fit in when everyone is already paired up in groups.

    Fun read & would recommend.

    I won a copy of this book and gave it to my 8th grade daughter, who hates to read! Well, guess what....she is currently reading it and she loves it. She gives it two thumbs up, so it must be a great read!!

    This is a case of the book matches the cover! What a fun, colorful, whimsical, exciting book! Megan is a delightful main character caught in the middle of new school drama. Tomsic perfectly captures the "life or death" feel of middle school drama without belittling Megan's problems or stress. Magical realism and math add another layer of fun to this tale (or should I say, "tail"?). I recommend this book to those who liked the "Bras and Broomsticks" series. Tons of fun!

    A sweet and funny middle grade that would have been a huge hit with my younger self. (And my older self enjoyed it a great deal too!)

  • Cara Hinton

    Outstanding book! This is a great Young Adult read, encourages speaking up for yourself and others and confidence. Something every middle school er needs to know! Spoiler alert......I only wish we got more of the brothers who invented the clock. There are a few small things I would have liked to have had expanded on.....

    Like what did Grams want to talk about before surgery? That was never answered.....And I think it was relevant. But I loved it and will recommend it.

    My first read of 2018 was a fun magical realism book about new girl Megan who tries to win friends and influence people using magic she accidentally-on-purpose wished into her life.

    I always have trouble reading mean-girl plots (having been the butt of a few of them as a kid) but I know the kids in my class will learn valuable lessons from Megan’s journey and how she deals with antagonist Rhena. They’ll also learn how important it is to be true to who you are and to not try and be someone you’re

They’ll also learn how important it is to be true to who you are and to not try and be someone you’re not. The magical parts were creative and fun. One thing I wish I had known more about was the family: Megan’s mom and cool grandma were two characters to whom I became attached, and I wanted more. But all in all, I’ll have no trouble recommending this book to kids who need a little help (or reminder) dealing with friendship and social situations during that rollercoaster known as middle school!

    This is a great story to hand to a middle schools student who has just moved.

  • Suzie

    4.5 just a straight up, adorably magical story!
