A fun, fast-moving middle-grade adventure story with lots of humor. After feisty Maeve gets in trouble once again at her Victorian London boarding  school for "Upright Young Ladies" she's forced to sort through the school's garbage. Amazingly, she discovers an old sardine tin that contains a grouchy djinni and his 3 wishes. After her first wish is wasted and her secret's been exposed, others try to steal the djinni for their own selfish purposes. Maeve, with the help of her roommate, Alive, and Tom, an orphan boy, has to use her ingenuity and spunk to retrieve her djinni and decide what to do with her last wish. Along the way she learns a lot about herself and about friendship means. Will she use her last wish for her own dreams, or will she be a true friend and give it away?
