What You Wish For

Samantha Casey loves all about her job at an elementary school on Galveston's sunny, historic island, Texas—goofy kids, stately Victorian building, butterfly garden. But when the beloved principal of the school retires, he announces that his replacement will be none other than Duncan Carpenter—a for... mer, unrequited crush of many years before Sam's. However when Duncan appears as her new boss, he's nothing like the sweet teacher she once swooned over. He's getting stubborn, humorless, and obsessed with safety at school. Now, with Duncan determined to destroy everything Sam loves about her school in the name of security—even trying to replace the building itself with a high-tech version that's nothing short of a prison—Sam has to find her voice and use it to stand up for everyone she cares about before the school that's become her home is gone for good. Told with the unparalleled warmth, humor and heart of Katherine Center, this new novel proves why she is one of today's fastest rising stars in fiction.
