  • Samantha Byrd is a tall girl who just happens to be on the school's basketball team. That doesn't mean she is any good though which is one reason why people tease her. So, just what would this uncoordinated girl do to try and make her life better?moreless

    Samantha has the height but sort of lacks the skill- okay, completely lacks the skill. At basketball practice she finds a peculiar looking necklace on the ground. Later on she bumps into an odd gypsy-like woman named Clarissa who offers her three wishes. This lady is very shady and should not be trusted. Samantha really wants nothing to do with her but wishes anyway because she doesn't believe that it will come true. The best part is the last wish when Samantha wishes the lady away. She also wishes that Judith, a bully, will meet her instead. Judith gets turned into a statue because she wants popularity and wants to be in the spotlight. Oops. Clarissa messed up again, but oh well, Judith did get what she wished for.moreless
  • Well, I guess this episode name speaks for itself.

    Right when it started, I was thinking, ooh, basketball, I like. But when Judith started talking, she started to ruin it. But Samantha I liked. I thought she was pretty cute, but she is not so cute no more. Now that she's an adult, I've seen the pictures. Trust me! You do not wanna go there. But anyway, Clarissa freaking freaked me out. Those black eyes of hers. *Shudders* At first I didn't think she was a witch, but when the episode kept going on, I figured it out. And I loved the ending too. I won't say what happens though.moreless
