The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder

The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder

     Campbell is sarcastic, cynical, and dying. She has accepted it, she just wishes her mother and sister would. She has stage four cancer and there is no more chemo, no more trials, no hope, nothing. In a last ditch effort her mother takes advice from the family pot smoking hippie friend and heads to Promise, Maine. The land of hope lies in a town you couldn't find on a map with a magnifying glass. Promise is the home to everlasting sunsets, purple dandelions, and miracles. Cam doesn't believe in God and she certainly doesn't believe some tiny town is going to provide her with a cure. She believes in science. Everything boils down to a probability, and just maybe, Promise, Maine has a higher probability of miracles. She has a list to complete, a hot neighbor to deal with, and a family who will have to go on without her. This is the summer Cam learned to live.

     This isn't normally the type of book I read. I like supernatural and paranormal stories where possibilities are endless. Every now and then we need a dose of real life, with real people, and real problems. The Probability of Miracles delivers just that. I laughed out loud, I got angry, and I cried right along with Cam. This is a story about finding hope and accepting and living life to the fullest. I can only hope that I will live as much in my lifetime as Cam did in this book. I give this book a 4 1/2 STAR rating.
