The coin changed Ephraim's life. But how can he change it back?Sixteen-year-old Ephraim Scott is horrified when he comes home from school and finds his mother unconscious at the kitchen table, clutching a bottle of pills. The reason for her suicide attempt is even more disÂturbing: she thought she'd identified Ephraim's body at the hospital that day.Among his dead double's belongings, Ephraim finds a strange coin--a coin that grants wishes when he flips it. With a flick of his thumb, he can turn his alcoholic mother into a model parent and catch the eye of the girl he's liked since second grade. But the coin doesn't always change things for the better. And a bad flip can destroy other people's lives as easily as it rebuilds his own.The coin could give Ephraim everything he's ever wanted--if he learns to control its power before his luck runs out.
