A dying teen learns to live in this heart-wrenching debut, perfect for fans of If I Stay
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.
When she's not writing or spending time with her miraculous daughter, Cadence, Wendy teaches yoga in Boston. Like Cam, she has always wanted a Volkswagen Beetle in Vapor. The Probability of Miracles is her first novel, and yes, Wendy Wunder is her real name. You can visit her online at www.probabilityofmiracles.com.
