On the third night of the third month after a girl’s thirteenth birthday, every girl in the town of Willow Hill makes three wishes. Natasha is the oldest child in a family steeped in magic, though she’s not sure she believes in it. She misses her mother, who disappeared nearly eight long years ago. She has a crush on one of the cutest boys in her class. And amid the chaos of a house full of sisters, aunts, and a father lost in grief, she aches to simply be noticed. So Natasha goes to the willow tree at the top of the hill on her Wishing Day, and she makes three wishes. What unfolds is beyond anything she could have imagined.

Most people in Willow Hill think Darya is the prickliest of the Blok sisters. What they don’t realize is that on the inside, Darya is soft and gooey from feeling everything, all the time. When Darya turns thirteen, the goo gets stickier --- and as Darya’s Wishing Day approaches, all she wants is to forget the silly tradition ever existed. Except...she can’t. Ten years ago, a wish made by Darya’s mother splintered their family into pieces. Last year, Darya’s sister Natasha wished for their broken mother to return. The past is something you’re supposed to leave behind. Which is why Darya has locked and sealed her most painful memories inside the far corners of her mind, where they can no longer hurt her.
