About the Book:

Marten doesn't believe in the power of wishes. None of his have ever come true. His parents ignore him, his little brother is a pain and his family is talking about moving to Texas. Not cool. So when he makes an impulsive wish during a meteor shower, he doesn't expect it to make any difference. Until his annoying brother disappears. Marten is whisked away to review his life with Tör, a star spirit. But when the review gets interrupted, Marten realizes that there's more than one life at stake. With his brother’s future in limbo and Tör’s present uncertain, Marten finds himself stuck in his past. And this time, even wishes might not be enough to save the ones he loves.
