** spoiler alert ** Middle School/first boyfriend/magic/friends and popularity

This story is about Wilma, a desperately unpopular girl in the 8th grade who is granted a wish by an old woman on the bus. Wilma wishes to be popular in her middle school, and experiences friends and even a boyfriend. Wilma experienced considerable anxiety about graduating at the end of the year from middle school and no longer experiencing the effects of her popularity wish. Fortunately, nothing really changes after the wish has been lifted.

This had zero plot, zero climax, zero purpose. There was an okay make out scene I guess. Not Gail's finest.
