In a world where nothing is certain, a little magic couldn't hurt...right?

When Erin Channing's favorite aunt dies, Erin is bequeathed a pink crystal ball and a set of weird instructions. Granted, Aunt Kiki (aka Aunt Kooky) always lived "outside the box." But now Erin and her two best friends are convinced that the pink crystal ball holds the key to their future-or at least the key to getting dates...

Consider Your Fate to Be Sealed . . .
- Absolute knowledge is not unlimited; let the planets be your guide to the number.
- There are sixteen ways to die, but four of them you will never see.
- The future belongs to you alone. Other voices will be disappointed.
-One rotation is as far as you can see. Only uncertainty lies beyond. [via GoodReads]
I enjoyed reading about Erin's perfectly boring life going up in smokes.  She was a great character - a studious and good student, has the highest GPA in her class, she has two BFF's that she is extremely tight with (Samantha and Lindsay), she doesn't have any drama going on in her life - so when the opportunity arises for five students to take a trip to Italy with their professor, she worries that her boring life will not inspire one of the winning essays that will win her her passage to Italy. 

Then her favorite aunt Kiki passes away leaving her a pink crystal ball and Erin and her friends find themselves wishing on it.  Mayhem ensues as their wishes become true with unexpected consequences.

While Erin and her BFF's deal with all sorts of issues from grades, teen romance, parents and even school bullies they find themselves in some crazy fun scenarios.  Chuckle inducing and a very feel good read - this is a super cute story to be enjoyed by teens and tweens alike.  There is no cussing and only some PG-rated kissing.  A very sweet story of friendship and living life to the fullest.  A treat to read.
