With an uncanny ability for reading other people and the force of a charming personality, seventeen-year-old Annika Truman is used to getting her way.
Heading out to the day-after-Thanksgiving sales, Annika wants nothing more than to return home with a Talking Teen Robin Hood for her cancer-stricken little brother, Jeremy. But the six-year-old throws her a curveball when he reveals that his heart's desire is for the "real" Teen Robin Hood, from the shows they watch on television, to pay him a visit.
Determined to give her little brother his wish, Annika hits the Internet looking for a way to contact the show's nineteen-year-old star, Steve Raleigh.
When the traditional methods fail, Annika drives from Nevada to Burbank, California, where The Adventures of Teen Robin Hood is filmed. With her best friend, Madison, in tow, the girls hatch a plan they hope will convince the young star to help Annika grant Jeremy's wish.
The idea of two young girls successfully sneaking onto a high-profile studio lot requires serious reader suspension of belief, no doubt. Through the strength of Annika's characterization and the loving relationship she shares with Jeremy, though, Ms. Rallison gives the reader a chance to abandon the cynicism of reality in favor of a world where wishes really can come true. by TeensReadToo
