Clarissa shook her head. Ant wondered where to start.
Its kind of a secret thing, she said at last.

Im very good at keeping secrets.
Antonia is sick of being bullied by Rosie, a mean girl at school. So when new girl Clarissa starts, Ant wishes Rosie would pick on her instead. But in Ant's seaside village they have a special way of making wishes, and they really do come true. Should Ant have been more careful what she wished for? And will the strange glowing necklace she finds help uncover the mystery of the Wishcatchers?
An enchanting story of friendship and magic from Edinburgh-based author Carol Christie.
'In Ant's village, Wishcatchers can grant wishes, sometimes with unexpected consequences ... The book mixes magic realism and mystery with the daily life of friendship, school dynamics, and family ... Both major and minor characters are fully realised, flawed but likeable. This is a compelling, engaging story about friendship and wishes that will appeal to a wide range of readers.'
