Eleven-year-old Sam has a problem. Well, quite a few problems. So when he sees a shooting star, he naturally wishes on it -- for a million wishes. Of course, he doesn't expect the wish to come true, but somehow it does. Sam has fun experimenting with wishes -- he can change anything he wants. But when he discovers that changing things has consequences that aren't always good, he begins to think again.

--- - Dad pointed upward. "Look!"
A bright silver streak was moving across the velvety blue sky.
"Is that a shooting star?"
"That's right."
"Can you make a wish on it?"
Dad laughed. "Well, that's the story. It's really just a meteor, burning up as it hits Earth's atmosphere. A chunk of rock from space. So I don't quite see how it could grant wishes . . ."
"Well, I'm going to wish," I said. "You never know!"
