Life isn't perfect in Sam's world. He's about to start a new school which his older sister assures him is filled with danger. His father's job is on the line. His best friend, Evan's, father is dying. Bullies stop their lunches. It's just one thing after another.
Then on a nightime walk with his father, Sam sees a meteor streaking across the sky and makes a wish. It's no ordinary wish. Sam wishes for a million wishes.
Imagine for a minute that you had a million wishes. What would life be like? Would all of your dreams come true?
When Sam wakes up the next morning, his life has changed and will never be the same again.
