[Sequel to The Wish From Heaven!] Finding no other option, Cedar Lockwood takes the completely out-of-character decision of running away from home to spend the remaining days with his temporary companion, July. Finally free from the cage he was born in, Cedar begins his flight through the ever-extending sky. But his tender heart was not prepared for the cruelties and hardships the real world holds for him.

Now coming in terms with his internal conflicts and embracing his dreams to the fullest stands as his biggest obstacle. However, as the clock ticks by and his time together with July draws to an end, Cedar discovers that running away from your feelings isn't as easy as running away from home.

Will Cedar finally be able to become more honest with himself? Will the wish his best friend made with love be finally fulfilled? Join Cedar in his journey of self-discovery in the final book of this tear-soaked duology.
