Books Info:

The Wish List free pdf Meg Finn is in trouble. Unearthly trouble. Cast out of her own home by her stepfather after her mother's death, Meg is a wanderer, a troublemaker. But after a botched attempt to rob a pensioner's flat, Meg and her partner in crime, Belch, are vaporized when a stray bullet from the old man's rifle hits an oil tank. Belch, predictably, is heading in only one direction:down, but Meg's record is found to be perfectly balanced. She is sent back to earth to try to tip the scales one way or the other, and her only chance for salvation is to fulfil the Wish List of the old man they tried to rob. And what a list it is - can Meg possibly succeed, especially as the angels and devils are getting in the way with every underhand ploy imaginable to claim her soul. In the end, will she really have enough good points to face up to St Peter? An unforgettable and gritty tale of life, death and an unexpected hereafter.
