On My Wish List (#11) - Bigger Than A Bread Box by Laurel Snyder

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday through Friday. It's where we list all the books we want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. I figure it's a great way to make me go through my ever-expanding wishlist and really look at some of the things on there.

It's also an event that you can join in with by linking your own OMW post with Mr. Linky at Book Chick City. If you want to know more click here.

Bigger Than a Bread Box has one of the most interesting book trailers I've seen in awhile.  It looks like a great middle grades book and I am looking forward to reading it.

    Bigger than a Bread Box

Goodreads Summary: 
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.

And the book trailer, which was apparently made by an uber creative 12 year old:

This trailer reminds me a bit of Maggie Stiefavater's stop motion video for Linger - artwork rising from the pages of a book. "I wish I had brought a book" and The Witch of Blackbird Pond appears. Love it!

You guys are AWESOME. It makes me so happy to hear people responding this way to my book. A twelve year old made that trailer. I can't get over it. xoxoL

My voice came out all squeaky, but he didn't seem to notice. He pushed off the locker and leaned close, his face inches fro mine. I swallowed audibly, overcome by a heady mixture of adoration, lust, and complete and utter terror. Would he kiss me? Did I want him to?
