Overview

The morning of Ava Tree's eighth birthday begins the same as always . . . only different. Today, Ava makes wishes and they come true. It's A for Amazing!

First, she wishes that her pet rabbit, Tibbar, will use the toilet instead of his messy, annoying litter box . . . and he does. Then she wishes that her best friend's very proper mother will not ruin her very improper backwards birthday party by making it forward, upside up right, down side down, and right side out . . . and she doesn't.

Can Ava wish for anything she wants on her birthday--and every day after that--and have it come true? What if her biggest wish is to undo the saddest thing in her life so far (and possibly forever)? Can that wish come true, too?

It couldn't hurt to try.

Read an Excerpt

I remembered how Tibbar used the toilet when I wished it. How Mother Purhfect changed her mind about coming to my party when I wished it. And how Reed Dimster didn't come to my party when I wished it. Now it was time to make my official birthday cake wish.

There was something I wanted more than anything else in the world. I would make it my birthday cake wish.

I looked over my shoulder and took a deep breath. I blew out those candles in one breath.
