Publisher Comments:

A magical breadbox that delivers whatever you wish for—as long as it fits inside? It's too good to be true! Twelve-year-old Rebecca is struggling with her parents' separation, as well as a sudden move to her gran's house in another state. For a while,  the magic bread box, discovered in the attic, makes life away from home a little easier. Then suddenly it starts to make things much, much more difficult, and Rebecca is forced to decide not just where, but who she really wants to be. Laurel Snyder's most thought-provoking book yet. 

About the Author

LAUREL SNYDER is the author of many books for kids, including Penny Dreadful, Any Which Wall, and Up and Down the Scratchy Mountains. A native of Baltimore, she now resides happily in Atlanta with her husband, Chris; their two small sons; and a cat and dog who get along admirably because they are exactly the same size. Laurel has recently begun a collection of vintage bread boxes.

Painting Pixie, age 8 writes: I liked this book because there is a magical bread box that gives Rebecca any wish as big as the bread box. This book is good for a kid who wants to dream. It would also be good for a kid whose parents are going through a divorce.
