About the Author

Kim Tomsic has been the new girl at eight different schools, where she earned a variety of conflicting labels: the dork, the cool kid; the pretty girl, the ugly girl; the smart kid, the normal kid; the worst at sports, decent at sports; and the shy girl, the talker. She kept one label: the talker. Kim now lives in Colorado with her husband, two children, and two dogs; all five keep her laughing. The 11:11 Wish is her first middle grade novel and is followed by The 12th Candle. Visit her at


PRAISE FOR The 11:11 Wish "Debut author Tomsic infuses Megan's first-person narrative with lots of personality and a distinctive voice, and secondary characters are all complex and multidimensional. Light fantasy firmly grounded in the realities of middle-school emotions."--ALA Booklist
"Readers will empathize with [Megan's] tenuous position and her tenacity despite the hilarious situations she gets herself into. A fine, funny fix."--Kirkus Reviews
"Tomsic puts a pawsitively magical twist on middle school mayhem. Whimsical and wacky, The 11:11 Wish is a romp of a read sure to please young teens and tweens."--Ingrid Law, Newbery Honor Winner and New York Times Bestselling Author of Savvy
"Full of unexpected twists and turns, this sweet, funny book is pure magic."--Tara Dairman, author of All Four Stars
"A thoughtful look at curse versus choice and an encouragement to youngsters to make their own paths."--Kirkus Reviews
"Tomsic demonstrates that wishes have a power of their own, no matter the good intentions behind them. [Sage has a] colorful group of friends whose engaging dialogue and ever-evolving relationships capture the essence of middle-school interaction."--Booklist
Sage is a believable feisty twelve-year-old, who has been trying to outrun her family's tarnished reputation for as long as she can remember, and her vulnerability to the preening Priscilla is keenly relatable.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
