From the Back Cover:
"If only Tanya could wish upon a star . . .
She would wish for a best friend whom she could keep forever, for life to be good and not always so disappointing, for her tomorrows to be brighter than her yesterdays.
So . . . one magical summer, far away in a golden desert,
she finds that all she ever needed to wish for became hers--"
