There is nothing wrong with Wilma Sturtz that a little popularity won't fix—or so she thinks. And luckily for her, she meets a witch on the subway who makes her wish to be popular come true. Almost instantly, Wilma becomes the center of attention at her junior high school. She has more friends than she can keep track of and forty invitations to the Graduation Night Dance—plus someone is writing her love poetry. What more could a girl want? But what will happen when the wish ends? How can Wilma make sure she is never unpopular again?
In this original modern-day fairy tale, Gail Carson Levine takes an ordinary girl and gives her an extraordinary chance, and along the way reveals the truth about what it really means to be popular.
