Book 8: The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder

The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder is the story of Cam. She is funny, sarcastic, pessimistic, and dying of cancer. Her mother and half-sister sweep her away to Paradise, Maine for the summer in hopes that the rumor of the town being miraculous might actually be true. Cam knows it is a fruitless cause, and allows her negativity to influence every word she breathes.

That is…until things start looking up. She gets a tan that eluded her throughout her life in Florida. She gains a little weight. She starts crossing things off her Flamingo List (akin to a bucket list, but flamingo was the word that she and her bff decided to call their list). She begins to see that perhaps Paradise, Maine does, in fact, have miracle-making capabilities.

Teens who aren’t put-off by sarcasm and pessimism will enjoy this book. Even those who like a more “happy” book will enjoy this, due to it’s happy-ish/sad ending. I didn’t love it, but I did like it. It is rather forgettable, but the message is a good one.
