Marinette Dupain-Cheng strives every day to make her grandmother proud of all her accomplishments in hopes that she will grant the young half- witch's greatest wish: to leave Paris and visit her best friend Alya in New Orleans. An accident at her elite school has her wish on the desperate edge of not being granted...
While her spirit guides try to comfort her and give her hope, can a wish at midnight allow her to escape from her gilded cage to freedom?
Marinette should've heeded her grandmother's warning: wishes can alter your fate in ways that you could never dream of happening.
So how is Marinette's fate tied to a smooth talking Cajun black cat?! Fate can be so confusing sometimes!
