Meg Finn is in trouble. She's dead, but not at peace--she's in limbo, her good deeds perfectly balanced against her bad deeds; Heaven or Hell wait, a tip of the scale away. So she's back on Earth trying to tip the scale to the good by helping her last victim, and her former "partner" is also back, trying to force her to tip the scale to the bad.

Nice Book

I found this a fairly interesting tale of trying to do four tasks before dying. Meg is a nice person, just with the bad luck to have a rotten step-father for her only family. She was at first only caring to get into heaven, but changed to care more for the person she's trying to help. Worth reading.


This is a great book. It was interesting and exciting! Meg is dead and she has to help Lowrie if she wants wants to go to heaven.

The Wish List

The Wish List is a good book about regret and helpfulness. Meg is dead, but her good deeds are balanced with her bad deeds. She is now back on Earth as sort of a "spirit", and if she wants to go to heaven, she must help her last victim.
