When a young man strikes up a conversation, she decides to ask him to wish her piano teacher Happy Birthday for her. But when the man arrives at the teacher’s house, he discovers that his chance meeting with Angela wasn’t exactly a coincidence.The Wish: A young man picks up a hitchhiker only to discover his guest is more polished than he looks. The hitchhiker has a gem called the wishing rock and he offers his driver the chance to make a wish. Will the wish come true?Saving the World: A clairvoyant teenage girl arrives at a psychiatrist’s office claiming she can speak with invisible aliens who are here to destroy our planet. She just needs to come up with one reason why they shouldn’t push the button. Who needs more help—the girl or the psychiatrist? “Gary Ponzo is a fantastic storyteller.”Judith L. Pearson, author of “Belly of the Beast,” and “Wolves at the Door.”
