Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p> With the same warmth and fun that readers loved in All the Answers , award-winning author Kate Messner weaves fantasy into the ordinary, giving every reader the opportunity to experience a little magic. </p> <p>Charlie feels like she's always coming in last. From her Mom's new job to her sister's life away at college, everything else always seems to be more important than Charlie's upcoming dance competition or science project. Unsure of how to get her family's attention, Charlie comes across the surprise of her life one day while ice-fishing . . . in the form of a floppy, scaly fish offering to grant her a wish in exchange for its freedom.</p> <p>Charlie can't believe her luck until she realizes that this fish has a funny way of granting wishes, despite her best intentions. But when her family faces a challenge bigger than any they've ever experienced, Charlie wonders if some things might be too important to risk on a wish.</p>

After Charlie finally gets the hang of communicating with a magical wishing fish, a family crisis with her older sister brings reality into sharp focus, and Charlie quickly learns that life's toughest challenges cannot be fixed by a simple wish.
