Kit is overjoyed when a moving truck arrives on her street. She' s even more excited when a boy her age steps out. But Albert doesn' t look as thrilled. He is sad, but he won' t reveal why. After many attempts to cheer him up, Kit walks away defeated. That night, a wayward balloon with a note tied to its string taps her window. In the note, Kit finds a wish that Albert has written. This is her chance to make Albert happy-she will (creatively) realize his wishes. But as each wish becomes increasingly harder to grant, Kit learns the powerful lesson that sometimes being a friend means waiting until the people you care about are ready to reach out.
