Razorbill and Alloy Entertainment present one of the best received novels of 2011. Sparkling new talent Wendy Wunder’s debut novel, THE PROBABILITY OF MIRACLES (On sale December 8, 2011 / 9781595143686 / $17.99 / Ages 14 Up), tells the story of an unforgettable seventeen-year-old cancer patient named Campbell Cooper who finds hope, humor, and the strength to live life fully in the face of death. Told in Wendy Wunder’s fresh, satirical voice, Cam’s story is a perfect marriage of unexpected humor and tear-jerking realism.

Wry, sarcastic, and practical-to-a-fault, Cam accepts her fate. But her kooky, fiercely-loving mother, a hula dancer at Disney World, does not. With Cam’s younger sister Perry in tow, they set off on a road trip from Orlando, Florida, to Promise, Maine, where it’s rumored that miracles happen. Cam is reluctant as ever to believe in the intangible, but when a mysterious envelope arrives containing a list of things for Cam to do before she dies, she finally opens her eyes to chasing a life well lived while she can.

THE PROBABILITY OF MIRACLES brings readers through sweeping romance, dream-chasing adventures, and the realization that each day must be lived to the fullest. Wunder reminds readers that the probability of miracles in everyday life is strong if only we look for it.

Wendy Wunder lives in Boston where she writes and teaches yoga. This is her first novel. And yes, Wendy Wunder is her real name.

That sounds like a nice change from the vampire and faery books that are out now. I love my paranormals - but something new from time to time is needed. I will check it out.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
