Waiting On: The Probability of Miracles


The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder
To be published: December 8, 2011
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; flamingos 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. {taken from goodreads.com}

I love books that are told in list form -- going in to it knowing there's a purpose, making your way through it until you finally hit that finish line.  I'm so stoked for this book that I already pre-ordered myself a copy :-)  Come December it will be a sweet surprise in the mail!  If you follow my reviews & my reading tastes, then you know how much I love contemps that make me feel.  This book seems to have all the elements of just that & much more!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

  2. I've seen this book around, but it wasn't until an author - I forget which female author, maybe Aimee Carter - started gushing about this book on her blog that it got on my radar. It sounds terribly emotional and a total tear-jerker. And, come on, The Boy's name is Asher!

  9. This does sound like such an incredible book. And like you, I love contemporary - it's practically all that I read. I may have to reorder it too!

    But I am trying to branch out and my WoW is something a little different from what I typically read.

    This book is AMAZING! I reviewed it on my blog. =) If I was all tech savvy and cool I would include a link in this comment. But... well, you notice there is no link.

    This book is a powerhouse of emotions. I laughed hysterically at times; I wept. A lot. But there were times that I just felt tingly. The subject matter is tough and you can guess the ending, but it was a bitter sweet moment. I marked this one as an all time favorite. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Oh, and if you like contemps, you need to read Going Underground. It's fabulous too! In a different sort of way. Ooohhh... and then there is Stay With Me. Whoa. (both of these are new faves too)
