Bye for Now: A Wishers Story
by Kathleen Churchyard (Author)
272 pages

Booktalk: After Robin’s eleventh birthday turns into an escalating disaster, she wishes to be someone else–and wakes up as Fiona, an eleven-year-old girl from London with an amazing life: she’s gorgeous, with glamorous parents, and she’s the star of a major theatrical production. Why would Fiona have wished herself out of her own body?

Snippet:
The horrible birthday began with a black eye.

SMACK. Dizziness. Pain. Through her other eye, Robin looked to see what she’d hit–a head of white-blonde hair–Sophie.
