Publisher's Summary

Caprice Rydell makes a wish and flips a coin into a fountain, and her life changes. Just for starters, she learns her father is a bigamist, and it's straight downhill from there. If that news being revealed on national television isn't embarrassing enough, it all happens in front of Mill Crocker, the captain of the school polo team and the most gorgeous guy she's ever seen.
Mill thinks she's adorable - but wishing isn't reality - and he thinks she's got what she wants. In a panic to right everything, what Cap wants is to reset her life back to normal again by getting that coin in her wet little hand. One more problem: Just how can she find it among the thousands in the fountain?

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

The one thing I didn't care about in the story is is lacked some dialog in explaining some things about her father's new life. It feels like there could've been more story in this area. It leaves the listener wondering . The story would've been 5 stars had it felt like a complete story.
