Hana is a lonely schoolgirl whose parents don't seem happy. She spends a lot of time fantasizing about meeting singer Avril Lavigne and admiring her classmate Brian from afar. At least she has Romeo, the wish-granting demon she ordered from Web site make5wishes.com. But is Romeo granting her wishes, or sowing chaos in her life? D'Errico and Dysart take the traditional "be careful how you wish" plot down a dark corner, as Hana wishes for her parents to be happy-and Romeo reveals an affair, breaking the family apart. Hana also wishes for Brian to notice her, and he does. But how will that go awry? Hana faces physical danger and emotional turmoil as Romeo whips her life out of shape. Hurtling toward a dark cliffhanger, this story will appeal to Avril fans and manga devotees, but also to more mainstream fantasy readers. The clever page layouts and excellent line work make this series easy to follow. Hana's classmates look completely familiar while Romeo comes off as terrifying, yet somehow cute. Though the plot is scary and sad, preteen girls will hang on to see what Romeo does next-and how Hana copes with it. (July)Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information

I really think they left the end open on this book. the last we see of hanna is that she's struggling to get to the surface and she says "I want to live" and the reporters say they are still searching for her. alot of people who've read this book or who've watched the videos believed she died because it doesn't give anymore information indicating whether or not hanna makes it. I feel if the author had wanted to continue the series they very well could because the reporters had said in the story that "It is possible she could've washed up on shore somewhere." They were looking for a survivor, not a dead body. Plus she was fighting for her life. I guess it's all in how u look at it.
It was amazing. Someone you can relate to. Hanna is a character you will never forget. on days i need to be somewhere else this is the best book for it. An amazing read but DO NOT FORGET to read the first book first.
I read this book with high hopes. I LOVE the first one but the second one was.....very sad. I didn't really like the end of it, it depressed me. The entire point of the story is 'Be careful what you wish for'. If you can handle books that make you alittle teary, then buy this book. I bought this only because of Avril Lavigne. Well, she's not really in this one as much as the first.
