Emma is struggling with the death of her mother's best friend, who was a second mother to her and a bringer of magic into her life. This particular morning, however, there is a letter waiting under the door with Emma's name on it. The letter holds a magical promise: ten small wishes that Emma writes down will come true as long as she doesn't tell another living human. The letter starts Emma on a road of adventure as she wonders who it came from and what luck really is. When Emma finds out who sent the first letter and the subsequent two, she receives her answer and realizes how lucky all of us are to be alive.
