Abstract:

Meg Finn is in trouble. Cast out of her home by her stepfather after her mom's death, Meg is a wanderer, a troublemaker. But after her latest stunt, finding a place to sleep is the least of her worries. Belch, Meg's partner in crime, has gotten her involved in the attempted robbery of an elderly man, Lowrie McCall. But things go horribly wrong. After an accindental explosion, Meg's spirit is flung into limbo, and a race begins between the demonic and the divine to win Meg's soul. Meg's really not a bad kid, but she hasn't exactly been an angell either, so the tally of her good and evil deeds is dead even. Her only chance of tipping the scales to salvation is to go back to Earth and do good--specifically, to help Lowrie McCall. He's got many regrets in his life to set right--a "wish list"--And not much time left to do it. But even if Meg can persuade Lowrie to get mixed up with her, she's going to have to deal with an even scarier, undead Belch--who's now definitely on the side of the Devil. A wild journey to the unexpected hereafter, The Wish List is a heartwarming tale of a young girl's last chance, and the love she will need to --quite literally--redeem herself.
