An Age-Regression-Gender Swap story only the way that Katie Leone can pull it off.

This book is a quick read, that could be consumed in one or two sittings, but the points it raises can have you thinking for months. What if you can undo your life and start over again under better circumstances? Is the pain you know better than the possible pleasure you may obtain if you went through life again? Can a person who has been repeatedly hurt learn to be their most vulnerable? These questions and more are addressed in The Wishing Blanket.
