The Probability of Miracles

The Probability of Miracles


'Doctor Handsome said I need a miracle.'
'Well then, Cam, we'll find you a goddamn miracle.'

Sixteen-year-old Campbell doesn't believe in miracles. She's spent the last seven years in and out of hospitals, so she can be forgiven if she's a little sceptical.

But Campbell's mum and sister won't give up on her, and they've heard rumours of a place in Maine where magical things happen: fish raining from the sky, purple dandelions, everlasting sunsets. A place named Promise. Yes, really.

Campbell may be cynical, but she still has hope. And so they head to Promise for a summer by the sea, where Cam finally learns to believe in true love, in herself, and maybe even in miracles.

A funny, bittersweet, heartbreaking debut from a wonderful new talent
