Hana’s life as a loner–in school and at home–brightens only when she’s masquerading as someone else online or chilling with her imaginary BFF (Best Friend Forever), rock star Avril Lavigne. But Hana’s daily grind is finally going to change, thanks to the demon she’s purchased from the mysterious website Make5Wishes.com. At last Hana’s going to be popular, her parents are going to stop fighting, her world is going to be as perfect as she’s always dreamed. So how could Hana’s best-laid plans for happiness turn to tragedy? Perhaps because everything has its price. . . .
“A disturbingly well-constructed comic [with] emotional depth.”

Hana is a lonely schoolgirl whose parents don't seem happy. She spends a lot of time fantasizing about meeting singer Avril Lavigne and admiring her classmate Brian from afar. At least she has Romeo, the wish-granting demon she ordered from Web site make5wishes.com. But is Romeo granting her wishes, or sowing chaos in her life? D'Errico and Dysart take the traditional be careful how you wish plot down a dark corner, as Hana wishes for her parents to be happy—and Romeo reveals an affair, breaking the family apart. Hana also wishes for Brian to notice her, and he does. But how will that go awry? Hana faces physical danger and emotional turmoil as Romeo whips her life out of shape. Hurtling toward a dark cliffhanger, this story will appeal to Avril fans and manga devotees, but also to more mainstream fantasy readers. The clever page layouts and excellent line work make this series easy to follow. Hana's classmates look completely familiar while Romeo comes off as terrifying, yet somehow cute. Though the plot is scary and sad, preteen girls will hang on to see what Romeo does next—and how Hana copes with it. (July)

Lonely, smart Hana, uninspired by school and destined to fade into the background, comes alive only when she hangs out with her imaginary version of pop-star Avril Lavigne, who helps Hana block out her parents' crumbling marriage and her classmates' scorn. Then, along comes Romeo, part demon and part genie, who grants five wishes—which begin to come true in disastrous and dangerous ways. The ending feels more like advertisement than inspiration, but this dark, cautionary tale has a few dramatic teeth. Most memorable, though, is the spooky art, which demonstrates some evocative color choices. Brenner, Robin
