The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder

imageDry, sarcastic, sixteen-year-old Cam Cooper has spent the last seven years in and out hospitals. The last thing she wants to do in the short life she has left is move 1,500 miles away to Promise, Maine - a place known for the miraculous events that occur there. But it's undeniable that strange things happen in Promise: everlasting sunsets; purple dandelions; flamingoes in the frigid Atlantic; an elusive boy named Asher; and finally, a mysterious envelope containing a list of things for Cam to do before she dies. As Cam checks each item off the list, she finally learns to believe - in love, in herself, and even in miracles.

This book. Wow. I read this a few months ago (from when I’m writing this review) and I’m still in awe of it. Wendy Wunder is such an immensely talented author. She deserves so much praise and book buzz for this amazing novel that she’s written. I can’t recommend The Probability of Miracles enough.

Cam was such an amazing main character. She sassy, pessimistic, and strong. I could not have asked for a better character. Cam had guts and she had such an amazing journey to tell. Everybody around her is hilariously optimistic about what Cam is going through. This novel is one big huge magical adventure that I never wanted to end.

I don’t have any complaints about The Probability of Miracles. It was a fantastic book. Given, it made me cry a lot. So, if/when you read it, you should get tissues. A lot of tissues. Let’s just say, I spent a good 10 minutes crying.

That being said, everybody needs to read The Probability of Miracles. It’s a touching debut novel from an author that will make you in awe of her talent. The Probability of Miracles is an inspiring and beautiful novel that everybody must read.
