Beautiful. <3

"Moving to Promise, Maine -- a town known for its miracles -- was Cam's mum's idea. Cynical, 16-year-old Cam knows that not even a miracle can cure her terminal cancer. Instead of hoping for the impossible, Cam spends her last summer having as many experiences as she can, including cow-tipping, shoplifting, having her heart broken… and maybe learning to believe in miracles after all. Quirky characters, sharp humour, and surprising moments help to balance the heart-rending truth of Cam's situation. Like The Fault in Our Stars, The Probability of Miracles is a "life-sometimes-stinks-but-it's-all-we-have tour de force" (School Library Journal)" Teen Scene June 2014 newsletter http://www.libraryaware.com/996/NewsletterIssues/ViewIssue/7b566aed-1e9e-4c94-a7d6-47b0da5d5ef2?postId=cdea2c98-6cc1-4765-8ee6-f42ef293d52f

I just read one of her other books, The museum of intangible things and it was also really good.

I LOVED this book!!!! I almost started to cry at the end! I would hate the feeling about knowing you are going to die young and not be able to live a long life.
