The Probability of Miracles, by Wendy Wunder
Razorbill (December 8, 2011)
Dry, 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.
A debut novel from an immensely talented new writer, The Probability of Miracles crackles with wit, romance and humor and will leave readers laughing and crying with each turn of the page.
When I saw this on The Scholarly Owl's WoW a couple weeks ago, I immediately knew I wanted to read it. It sounds like something Sarah Addison Allen (aka one of my all-time-favorite authors) would write. It's got that contemporary-with-a-touch-of-fantasy thing going on, which I totally love. SOOO excited for this one!
