"With great power comes great responsibility." -Voltaire
I have great power.
That's what she told me. The old fortune-teller at the school carnival.
I thought I was doing the right thing ... with the magic journal she gave me. But nothing could prepare me for what happened next.
Or, for what I unleashed.
At a school carnival, a mysterious fortune-teller gives twelve-year-old Angela Ashby a journal and warns her to use it wisely. Nothing prepares Angela for the journal's power--when she pours her heart onto its pages her desires come true.
She tests the journal by conjuring a gnome, a unicorn, and a farting fairy and then uses it to stop the school bullies in their tracks. But the unintended consequences alienate her best friend and puts her favorite teacher in danger of losing her job.
After she shares her deepest desire of all--that her parents get back together--her adversary steals the journal, and Angela fears she will use it to bring mayhem to the entire school if she doesn't get it back.
What if every time you told the truth, evil followed?

Since then, I've been passed around from foster home to foster home. I didn't think anything could be as bad as losing Mama.
I was wrong.
But I will not speak of things people have done to me. Every time I do, worse evil follows. Now, the only thing I trust is what saved me years ago.
Back when I would sing the snakes calm ...
