Adopted as a baby, Hazel Hayes has always been alone. She's never belonged anywhere--and has always yearned to know the truth about where she comes from. So when she receives three stunning, enchanted dresses--each with the power to grant one wish--Hazel wishes to know her mother. Transported to a time and place she couldn't have imagined, Hazel finds herself living an alternate life--a life with the mother she never knew.

Over the course of one amazing, miraculous summer, Hazel finds her home, falls in love, and forms an unexpected friendship. But will her search to uncover her past forever alter her future?

In the heart-pounding, luminous sequel to WISH, Alexandra Bullen asks the question: If you could wish for a new life . . . would you?

Hazel looked down at the note. A wish? What wish? She noticed a small, golden graphic. It was the same butterfly she'd seen the night before, flying out of her dress and into the night sky. The butterfly she'd thought she'd imagined.


Hazel closed her eyes, forcing herself to return to that moment. She'd been thinking about Rosanna. She'd said some words out loud. But what had she...


Suddenly, Hazel bolted up to her feet.


I wish I had gotten to know her first.
