Summary: 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.

Review: The Probability of Miracles is a beautiful book. It's a book that makes you cry but also makes you laugh and smile.

Cam was a fantastic main character. From the moment she appeared on the page she captured my heart. Cam has been through a lot and I doubt she'd want sympathy from people. She doesn't get mine, she gets my support. Cam was everything that I needed my main character to be. She was strong, relatable and she could make me smile.

The supporting characters were just as real as Cam was. Asher was just an amazing character. I don't think an author could have created a better love interest. Cam's Mom and sister and even her Grandma touched my heart and made me want to know them.

On top of the great characters there's the writing. Wunder has a way of putting things that was just so beautiful. I am in love with her writing. I don't even want to get started on how much I loved the concept of the book.

The Probability of Miracles will amaze you with its writing and concept, but it's the characters that will make you want to stay in the world of Promise, Maine.

I *loved* Cam. She was so cynical and snarky! And I agree, PoM definitely makes you laugh and cry. I loved that book! Great review, Katie! :)

Okay, adding this one to my wishlist. I love when a book draws you in so deep that you grow attached to the characters. Sounds awesome.
