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; flamingoes 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.

When I received this book for review, that was my first time hearing about it. Doing a quick search on Goodreads proved that I have definitely been missing out!

Cam was one of the most hilarious characters I have ever read. No matter how my day was going I looked forward to picking up where I left off and having a good laugh, thanks to Cam. Although she was suffering from Terminal Cancer, Cam never let it once take her over. She tackled it with every fiber she had. She accepted the fact that she had Cancer, but she didn't let it run her life. I envied her for that. Wendy Wunder penned a lovely, strong character in Cam. One that will stay with you long after you've read the book.

Although she was the main character of the novel, the secondary characters shined brightly as well. Perry(Cam's younger sister) inherited Cam's sarcastic humour, and their banter made for many laugh out loud moments. Asher was another one of a kind character. When Asher is introduced you think that he and Cam couldn't be anymore different. But opposites attract right? They certainly do with Cam and Asher. Those two were made for each other. They were ying and yang. Every character contributed to this novel greatly. If one had been missing, the book would have been incomplete.

The Probability of Miracles reminded me why I love reading so much. Finding that great book that you look forward to everyday. You count down the minutes until you can curl up on the couch and crack open your book. Wendy Wunder crafted an enchanting, packed with emotion novel that had me laughing, crying and smiling through my tears. A beautifully raw story that must be experienced by all readers.
