The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder
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.
A debut novel from an immensely talented new writer, The Probability of Miracles crackles with wit, romance and humor and will leave readers laughing and crying with each turn of the page.
Cam was a really good character, and she had a wicked sense of humor. You really got a chance to get to know all the characters in this book, and that was totally awesome(of course). Cam and Asher were really cute together, and they had all the heart-breaking stuff that a good book couple need. Cause all good couples have a little bit of Heart breaking. You know it's true. But they also have a lot of pure bliss moments, and that was really great. The author gave you a little back story on all the main characters, and it made you love the characters even more than you started out with. This came from the authors heart. All in all, it was a must read. For everyone. Because it was amazing. In the purest sense of the word.
"Oh my. Asher. Hm. Hm. Hm. Turn Around. He's beautiful, Campbell. Are you schtupping my granddaughter?" she asked him.
"Well I give you my permission."
And just like that, Cam's love life was ruined forever. If and when she ever "schtupped" Asher, she'd have to do everything she could not to think of her grandmother.
