Abigail Louise "Abby" Jensen (Debby Ryan), who is eager to grow up, has been planning for her sweet 16 ever since she was a little girl. She has a فہرست of secret wishes she wants to come true. When the big دن finally arrives, she excitedly adds her 16th and final wish to the secret wish فہرست she's been keeping: a تصویر of Logan (Keenan Tracy), her crush.

Then begins the first of many unusual occurrences, each including visits from a peculiar woman, Celeste (Anna Mae Routledge). She first appears as an exterminator when the Jensen's house gets overrun سے طرف کی wasps from a nest in their attic that has been building up for 16 years. The Jensen family are now unable to go back into their house until the wasps are exterminated, however, Celeste manages to extract Abby's wish فہرست from the house.

Abby's best friend, جے Kepler (Jean-Luc Bilodeau), appears and offers Abby a جیکٹ to wear over her pajamas, as she is unable to go back into her house to change. When Abby reaches into Jay's جیکٹ pocket, she finds a birthday present for her from Jay. It is a ہار with a half of a دل saying "BFF". جے has the other half which he uses as a charm on his key ring. As جے and Abby go to their bus stop, a delivery truck pulls up, and Celeste comes out, dressed as a mail woman and gives a package to Abby. When Abby opens it, she discovers 16 candles and a matchbox. Unwilling to ride the bus to school, Abby lights the first candle and wishes for a new car, the eighth wish on her list. However, her first wish, meeting Joey Lockhart (Joel Semande), the hottest celebrity, is fulfilled. Abby then realizes that the candles correspond to her 16 wishes on her فہرست and that they're each coming true every time a candle is lit.

Celeste later tells her after midnight, all wishes will become permanent. Abby lands the attention of Logan, gets the Ford مستونگ, mustang she's always dreamed of, she gets back at her lifelong nemesis, Krista Cook (Karissa Tynes) سے طرف کی beating her in a والی بال match, then getting elected as Student Body President, even though she didn't sign up for the elections. Also, she is suddenly fashionable, athletic, and popular.

During classes, Abby remembers that she needs the perfect dress for her 16th birthday party and decides to go out and buy it, together with Jay, who agrees to pay for it. They are followed سے طرف کی Krista, who decides to see where Abby's sudden good luck comes from, and when جے drops his wallet she takes it. She also convinces the store clerk that they are not going to buy anything (saying they are children) and are just wasting her time. The clerk believes her and kicks them out. While in the changing room, Abby uses the ninth candle and makes a wish to be treated like an adult, which instead, makes her an adult. This turns for the worse for Abby as it results in her not being allowed to attend high school anymore, and no one at school remembers her, not even Jay. Her parents also buy her a new apartment and leave her to live on her own.

Regretting her wish, Abby tries to look for a solution سے طرف کی going through her wishlist, though none of them are useful. Abby goes to Krista's Sweet 16 and convinces جے that they are best دوستوں سے طرف کی دکھانا him the birthday present he gave her which restores his memories of her, though, جے can't help her. Desperate, Abby seeks the aid of Celeste, who is also unable to help her. Celeste then explains that there are several rules of magic, and one of them is that a wish cannot be undone. Abby eventually finds a loophole through the rules, seeing as how her last wish was a picture of her crush, glued on with gum, which seems to act as a "barrier" between the picture and the rules. She switches the picture for a picture taken that morning of her and wishes she could go back to that morning.

Abby's life then goes back to normal, along with some dead wasps in the process. She and Krista reconcile after Krista tells Abby why she hates her. Back in the 3rd grade, Abby and جے made a pact to be best دوستوں forever, leaving Krista out, though up until that point, Krista and جے had been best friends. Abby and Krista have a combined Sweet 16 party and Krista and Logan get together. Abby and Krista stop competing and work together to make the person who truly deserves to be Student Body President: Jay. Abby and جے kiss before sharing a dance together. Abby says she got everything she wants. Celeste then disappears, smiling.
