A clever tale that follows along a matter of wishes. What would you wish for if you could have anything you wanted? Carrie thinks she can do the three wishes the right way and is sure she won't waste them like the stories say. But when it comes down to it will she have the wit to make the best of the situation or will chance and fate have their way with her? Once you finish reading this story, consider stopping and asking these questions: What does Carrie think of the people in the stories about wishes? What is Carrie's plan for if she had wishes? What does she plan to wish for? What happens with her first wish? What happens with her second wish? How does her last wish turn out? Do you think Carrie has learned her lesson? And now the real question, "If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?"
