Teen Book Review

The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder

Rating 5

Reviewed by Debbie, McClay Staff

Grab the tissue box! This is one of those teen books where you have already guessed the ending, but you keep hoping for a "miracle".  When a book starts with "She hoped this is what it would  feel like in heaven", you know it can't end well. Cam is a sixteen year old that has spent the last seven years in and out of hospitals. She is crossing things off her "flamingo list" and the last thing she wants to do is move 1600 miles away to a town called Promise, Maine, a place known for miraculous events. The story has wit, romance, humor and a cast of quirky characters. Cam did find her own little miracles and the story will touch your heart. Similar to John Green's, The Fault in Our Stars and Before I Die by Jenny Downham, but not near as heavy or sad.
