12-year-old Rebecca lives in Baltimore with her mother, father, and little brother, Lew. Her parents are having marital problems. So her mother packs up Rebecca and Lew and goes to stay for awhile in Atlanta with her mother. Rebecca is glad to see her grandmother and loves her. But she is very unhappy to be away from Baltimore and her father. She finds an old breadbox in her grandmother's attic. She soon discovers that whatever she wishes for will appear in the breadbox---as long as it is small enough to fit in the breadbox. She wishes for clothes and money and lots of other stuff. She eventually learns about the consequences of the things that she wishes for. At its heart, this book is not about magic---it's about the difficulties of children when their parents separate or divorce.
