9780141340722: The Probability of Miracles

A funny, bittersweet and irresisitible teenage romance, perfect for fans of Gayle Forman's If I Stay, Jenny Downham's Before I Die or Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall

A funny, bittersweet teenage romance for those who loved Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.

Seventeen-year-old Campbell doesn't believe in miracles. She's spent the last five years in and out of hospitals, so she's pretty sceptical.

But Campbell's mum and sister won't give up. They've heard rumours of a place in Maine where magical things happen: fish raining from the sky, purple dandelions, everlasting sunsets. A place named Promise. Yes, really.

So they head to Promise for a holiday by the sea, where Cam meets mysterious neighbour Asher, a crazy donkey called James and a puppy who's a survivor. In Promise Cam learns to believe in true love, in herself, and maybe even in miracles.

This is Wendy Wunder's debut novel - and it lives up to her unusual surname! Wendy lives in Boston with her daughter and family and teaches yoga as well as writing.
