The Wishing Book of Barnaby Sloan
Barnaby Sloan doesn’t believe in magic. His life is ordinary in every possible way: grad school, volunteering, spending time with his friends. He has a crush on the director of the museum where he volunteers, Liam Morrison, but has never allowed himself to believe it could become anything more. What could a man like Liam see in somebody as ordinary as him?
For his twenty-fifth birthday, Barnaby’s beloved aunt gives him a leather-bound journal. Since it’s his birthday and people expect him to have wishes, Barnaby writes his wishes in the journal: that he could go to Egypt with his archaeologist aunt, that he could work at the museum permanently, and that he could share his life with Liam.
Barnaby Sloan is about to learn that magic happens everywhere, sometimes in the smallest of ways.
