Great friendships and first crushes—WISH books are for the tweens who love stories with heart!

Ainsley never wanted to spend her summer on a fairy tale cruise—especially since, instead of lounging by the pool, she’s running around the ship doing favour after favour for her cruise director mom.

Things aren’t all bad—it’s good to see her mom acting confident again after the divorce, and there’s also a guy who’s super cute, even in a dorky dwarf costume.

But once the cruise starts, things start to go wrong: the laundry turns pink, the kitchen runs out of food, and her mom expects her to be in a hundred places all at once. Is this fairy tale cruise under a wicked curse? Or can Ainsley stand up for herself and make the cruise end happily ever after?
