Have you ever dreamed of having a genie grant you three wishes?  Do you know what those wishes might be?  When Margo McKenna does not get the lead in the school play, she canít believe it.  The lead went to Vicky!  A talentless sophomore!  Margo is given a small part and is not happy.  When she finds a ring in the girls bathroom, things begin to change.  When she picks up the ring, a genie appears.  Oliver looks nothing like the genies we may imagine.  He looks like a regular kid.  But he tells her that Vicky used to be his master.  That makes sense.  There is no way she would have gotten the lead in the play on her own.  And now Margo has a chance to make her three wishes.  She takes it slowly trying to be smart about what she wants.  But Oliver is in a hurry.  Another genie is out to kill him and he must keep moving.  Can Margo find a way to help Oliver?
