Millicent has been waiting all her life for this moment to arrive -- her fourteenth birthday and the receiving of her Gift: the power to have one wish come true. For one time in her life, she can change absolutely anything she wants.

But as her birthday draws near, Millicent gets glimpses of just how much her Gift will change her life, and she begins to have doubts. She begins to wonder if such an awesome power is a gift or a burden.

Then, on a moonlit night, in the time it takes one bullet to travel twenty feet, Millicent's world comes crashing down around her, and she is forced to face the full responsibility of her Gift.
