Description - Careful What You Wish for by Maureen McCarthy

'There is no real risk as long as you're careful,' Rodney said to Ruth. 'You'll have three chances to create your perfect life. If for some reason you don't like where you've ended up, you can return. But if you choose to stay longer than one day, you'll stay in your new life for ever.'

Ruth Craze thinks life can't get any worse. She fights with her brothers, her parents driver her mad and no one ever listens to her. So when Rodney the Rat suggests a way out, Ruth is ready to risk everything.

Three wishes. Three chances to create her perfect life.

A million ways to get it wrong.

A gloriously life-affirming adventure from a much-loved storyteller.
