Description below taken off Netgalley.
Running away didn't work. A new school didn't help. But will discovering her magical power solve all of Jinnie's problems or cause more?
Eleven-year-old Jinnie has a dilemma--she can grant wishes, but she can't control the results.
The school counselor tells Jinnie to join the Troubled Tweens, a group of kids with similar power problems. Maddy's touch makes anyone explode in anger. Grace can make people like her--as long as they don't let go of her arm.
But their loose use of magic attracts the attention of the Loki, a group of magic thieves and pranksters. They want to steal an open-ended wish from Jinnie, and it will take all the limited and messed-up magic she and her friends possess to make sure their powers don't fall into the Loki's greedy hands.
Jinnie Wishmaker is the first book of the Troubled Tweens series for 9-12 year olds. The series continues with Marcus Mender.
