In New York Times bestselling author Marissa Meyer's young adult contemporary romance, a girl is suddenly gifted with the ability to cast instant karma on those around her – both good and bad.

Chronic overachiever Prudence Daniels is always quick to cast judgment on the lazy, rude, and arrogant residents of her coastal town. Her dreams of karmic justice are fulfilled when, after a night out with her friends, she wakes up with the sudden ability to cast instant karma on those around her.

Pru giddily makes use of the power, punishing everyone from public vandals to mean gossips, but there is one person on whom her powers consistently backfire: Quint Erickson, her slacker of a lab partner. Quint is annoyingly cute and impressively noble, especially when it comes to his work with the rescue center for local sea animals.

When Pru resigns herself to working at the rescue center for extra credit, she begins to uncover truths about baby otters, environmental upheaval, and romantic crossed signals—not necessarily in that order. Her newfound karmic insights reveal how thin the line is between virtue and vanity, generosity and greed . . . love and hate… and fate.


In Marissa Meyer's young adult contemporary romance, a girl is suddenly gifted with the ability to cast instant karma on those around her – both good and bad.

#IndyPLTeens: If you're a sucker for RomComs, this is your book!

Prudence is an overachiever, and her class partner, Quint, is so not. After she earns a "C" on the final project, while Quint earns a better grade, Prudence is willing to do just about anything to make up the assignment . . . even if that means making fish gut smoothies for injured seals at the aquatic animal sanctuary.

But wait, there's more! Prudence, along with her twin brother, Jude, and her best friend, Ari, meet at their usual hangout, Encanto, for an unusual night of karaoke. After Prudence's performance, she slips and hits her head . . . only to discover that she can summon Karma instantly.

This is a fun story with a clever Beatles tie-in.
