The Wishing Box

This "funny, magical debut" Glamour explores the surprising and unintended consequences of getting what you wish for. Julia, an almost-30 single mom whose life is mostly together, lives in Oakland with her young son. When she and her sister half-seriously build a wishing box for the return of their long-absent father-and suddenly he comes back-life spins unpredictably out of control. Now Julia has disappeared, and she and her quirky family of seers and seekers find new ways to puzzle out the strange pulls of fortune and fate.
