Joel will soon be twelve, and he thinks nothing's going on in the small community where he lives. But he's wrong there. One day, a Miracle happens to him. He's very nearly run over by a bus, but is miraculously unhurt. Now, what do you do when a Miracle has come your way? Shouldn't you show gratitude somehow? Surely a good deed of some sort is in order. But how?

A humorous, wise,and understanding portrait of a boy about to leave childhood behind him, this is an independent sequel to the award-winning and much-praised A Bridge to the Stars.

Review:

"Mankell's story always hovers on the edge of magical realism but he suggests that there is no magic as powerful as the imagination of a melancholy child." (Stephanie Merritt Observer)

"Translated beautifully by Laurie Thompson . . . there is no need to have read the previous book to be entranced by this one." (Jo Klaces TES)

"Beautifully written" (The Bookseller)

"A concise and questioning narrative that will amply reward reflective readers aged 10 and above." (School Librarian)

"Through Joel, Mankell invites us to think about what it is that makes us who we are, in this beautiful book." (Booktrusted.co.uk)
