Ever wonder why life doesn't always go according to plan? Perhaps you had a big party to go to when you came down with a terrible cold. Or you were up to play quarterback when you twisted your ankle. Or your favorite shirt got a hole in it exactly when you were about to show it off to a friend. You might chalk it up to bad luck, poor timing, or straight up clumsiness. Nathanial Thatcher believed he'd drawn the short straw in life and blamed his weak immune system for keeping him locked up in his sanitized bedroom. It took his 12th birthday wish to cure him and finally pull the trick off his eyes revealing the true culprits of his situation, and perhaps yours, the sprites!

Now Nathanial must take on these wish thieves if he is to keep his health. But how does one boy stand up against a society of sprites who make their living from using humans like factories? His new friend Aliya might know, but Nathanial must rescue her off that pirate ship and let a dagger guide them through enemy filled terrain before they can reach the only sprites sympathetic enough to help them, the wish sprites. The alternative is not acceptable and Nathanial will do whatever it takes to gain control over his own life.
