Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Sticks and Stones (#1): When Mandy makes a wish, she never expects Desiree, a genie almost done with her 50-year contract, to appear and grant anything she wants. But Mandy will quickly learn that not only does her genie have an attitude problem, she needs to be careful of what she wishes for…
Break My Bones (#2): Everyone makes mistakes. Crissy’s just might kill her. Crissy Sheets is trapped. Her best friend wants her to break up with her boyfriend. Her family is excited that she found such a great catch. Crissy thinks Brad is the one but wonders if he really loves her. The last thing she wants is to end up pregnant and alone at seventeen like her mom and older sister did. Terrified by the future she’s headed for, Crissy makes a wish for a better life. Just a few desperate words uttered as a star shoots by in the night sky. She knows it won’t work, nothing can change fate. But then Desiree, a hippie genie who’s nearly given up on magic, arrives to grant Crissy’s wish by showing her a different path. Crissy was warned that her life could get worse before it got better. But when things go from bad to worse to nightmare, will Crissy’s wish be enough to save her?
Never Hurt Me (#3): Everyone has a wish. Desiree’s just got real. For years eighteen-year-old Desiree has been living in a sort of limbo, granting wishes for others while never receiving her own. Now it’s the hippie-genie’s turn and she’s finally going to get what she asked for so long ago, a second chance at life. She has two options: moving forward or going back. Moving forward means no longer being a genie, going to college, and living the independent life she’s dreamt about for so long. Going back means returning to 1968 to when her best friend, brother, and parents are still alive. But would she get to fix her mistakes or be forced to live through them for a second time? Complicating things further is the fact that both choices take her away from Kaf. And that’s a huge problem because falling in love with her exasperating boss was the last thing Desiree expected.
