Millicent may seem like a normal teenager but she has inherited the family's gift.  She has grown up in a family where magic and spells are controlled by self discipline.  And now, as she approaches her 14th birthday, she must decide if she wants to use the gift.  She has the ability to make one wish come true on her birthday.  But if she uses it, what would the wish be?  As the day draws closer, Millicent comes to understand that the gift can sometimes be a curse.
