Everybody has a wish. What if yours were granted?
Brokenhearted over the loss of her twin sister, Olivia Larsen feels alone and adrift. When she is invited to a party full of beautiful strangers, all she has to wear is one of her twin's cast-off dresses. Olivia brings the dress to a small, mysterious seamstress shop, but the dress returned to her is not the same. Down its newly crafted seams runs a thread of magic; wear the dress, make a wish, and have it granted. Soon, Olivia will discover that while one wish mght lead to the past, another might lead to true love, and still another... back to herself.
Luminously written by thrilling new talent Alexandra Bullen, this enchanting novel is the perfect modern-day fairy tale.
"Bullen delivers an enticing first novel about twin sisters. The sisterly dynamic will draw readers in as... As Olivia's life becomes fuller it gets more complicated, too, but the story never surrenders to melodrama or gloom. Bullen's prose is solid, her head-to-toe descriptions of clothing are lavish, and she makes the sights of San Francisco come alive in this sweet story of siblings determined to remain inseparable." — Publishers Weekly
"...a touching, enjoyable read that will have readers rooting for Olivia to find her own voice and step into the sun." — Kirkus Reviews
