Abby Jensen who is very eager to grow up has been planning her sweet 16 birthday since she was a little girl. When the big day finally arrives she adds her 16th wish on a list of wishes that she had been keeping for a very long time. A picture of her crush decorating the list. The day starts with a handful of unusual occurrences one of which being meeting a woman named Celeste. She first meets Celeste who was dressed as an exterminator after Abby's family home is overrun with Wasps from a nest that had been building up for 16 years in their attic. The family is then unable to re-enter their home until the wasps are removed and because of this Celeste is able to retrieve Abby's wish list.

Jay, Abby's best friend, lets her use her Jacket to cover up her pajamas and when she puts it on she pulls out a gift that he had for her for her birthday. Its a necklace with half a heart and BFF written on it. Jay has they other half and uses it as a key chain.

Celeste pulls up in a delivery truck dressed as a mail woman and hands Abby a package with 16 candles and a box of matches. Not wanting to take the bus to school Abby lights the first candle and wishes for a new car. The 8th wish on her list. Instead her first which, which was to meet her crush comes true. After meeting her crush Abby realizes that each candle represents a wish on her list and the wish comes true when she lights the candle.

After each and every wish comes true and she ends up becoming a grown up, losing her best friend, and getting kicked out of the house by her own parents, Abby starts to regret ever making her wish list. She seeks the help of Celeste to try and change things but the rules of magic include that a wish cannot be taken back. Abby sits down and looks through her list of wishes to try and find something that could be useful. She then realizes that the picture of her crush is only stuck on with a piece of gum and replaces it with a picture taken that morning so that she can start it all over again and do things right.
