Review for The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder

The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder
Blurb:
Campbell Cooper has never been in love. And if the doctors are right, she'll never have the chance. So when she's told she needs a miracle, her family moves 1,500 miles north to Promise, Maine--a place where amazing, unexplainable events are said to occur--like it or not. And when a mysterious envelope arrives, containing a list of things for Cam to do before she dies, she finally learns to believe--in love, in herself, and maybe even in miracles, as improbable as they may seem. 

Review:
I suppose there are miracles that happen once in a while, but the tiny little things that happen, the little miracles if you will, the ones that make you <i> believe </i> are the ones to remember.

The Probability of Miracles is the story of Cam, a girl who has been battling the big C for so long and knows she can't have a future. She rationalizes everything, always has an explanation for everything, and usually is right. So when they get to Promise, Maine she tries to rationalize those miracles as well. But some things can't be explained or rationalized away.

The tagline "One Summer to Live a Lifetime" seems so appropriate. Cam hasn't lived, not really, till she comes to Promise and finds everything she has been missing out on.

I loved the writing style and I loved Cam's animal loving nature! How she made that deal with Bart and saved Buddy! Aw! Made me love her more! I loved the fact that the book got me right in the feels but I wasn't a mess in the end. The ending was like having closure.

Oh and this book makes its way onto my Gorgeous Book Covers list! I mean come on!! How gorgeous is that cover!?! *-* <3

Emotional, profound and lovable; this book was a great read.


!!!!Spoiler Alert!!!!

Oh the lengths she goes to to create miracles, specially the one with James Madison. It was epic!
Also I really liked the little profound thoughts she wrote down in the book!
I just had to share these!
