Spring 2010 Kids' Next List
“Olivia is the new girl in a new city who wants to fit in, and When a magical dress shows up on her doorstep she has no idea how her life is about to change. I enjoyed that the magical powers weren't over the top and made the story very delightful and fun to read all the way to the last page.”
— Sarah Galvin, The Bookstore Plus, Lake Placid, NY
Olivia Larsen's twin sister, Violet, is dead. Olivia knows nothing that can change that . . . until the day she receives a beautiful dress. The dress doesn't just look magical: it has the power to grant wishes. And all Olivia wants is her sister back.
But Violet's return isn't what Olivia expected. As love, secrets, betrayal, and a haunted past collide, Olivia begins to wonder what a wish is worth . . . and if her life will ever look the same.
