Brokenhearted over the loss of her twin sister, Olivia Larson feels alone and adrift. When she is invited to a party full of beautiful strangers all she has to wear is one of her twin's cast-off dresses. Olivia brings the dress to a small, mysterious seamstress shop, but the dress is not returned to her the same. Down its newly crafted seams run a thread of magic: wear the dress, make a wish, and have it granted. Soon, Olivia will discover that while one wish might lead to the past, another might lead to true love, and still another... back to herself. Luminously written by thrilling new talent Alexandra Bullen, and conceived by Alloy Entertainment, the think tank behind Gossip Girl, The Luxe, and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, this enchanting novel is the perfect modern-day fairy tale.

Read from the Book

EXCERPT FROM WISH:Olivia wiggled the dress free and over the top of the hanger and gasped.This was not Violet's dress.First of all, this dress was black. All black. No swirling Pucci prints, no contrasting colors. The empire waist had become a drop, and the narrow, delicate straps had been replaced with a thick halter, plunging into a deep V at the neck.It wasn't that the dress was ugly- it was simply, in fact, not hers.It must be a mistake, Olivia concluded, grabbing the bag from the bed, opening it, and angling the gown back in place. She was tugging the stubborn zipper back up the front, when a folded piece of paper fluttered onto the floor.The note was written in purple crayon on the back of a graying business card, which looked like it predated not only custom graphics but most likely word processors in general. Olivia stared at the sloppy, childlike handwriting, her eyes blurring the six little words and setting them swirling. OLIVIA: TRY IT ON FIRST.
