Interference Powder by Jean Hanff Korelitz


Interference Powder by Jean Hanff Korelitz

When 11-year-old Nina Zabin finds a mysterious vial of Interference Powder in her art teacher's bag, everything starts to go horribly wrong. By sprinkling some of the mysterious powder on her drawing, Nina discovers that her deepest wishes start to come true. But that isn't so great, because suddenly she's the class Brain Buster, her best friend Isobel isn't speaking to her, and every time she opens her mouth, she sings rather than speaks! How can Nina reverse the havoc caused by the powder? And what will happen if she can't? This is a funny and absorbing book with a fresh approach to being careful what you wish for.
