I love when authors take my heart and crush it into tiny little pieces, but then make it swell like a balloon. Keep playing with my emotions, because I love to read and feel. The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder is a book that gets under your skin. Campbell Cooper, main character, is a person who I totally was invested in and I connected with her character and rooted for her.
As The Probability Of Miracles by Wendy Wunder begins, Cam has a very brash attitude, she refuses to let people in – for good reason. Cam has cancer and her forecast is not good. With her BFF Lily, Cam makes a bucket list of sorts -called a flamingo list. As the hospital treatments aren’t working, Cam and her family seize on the idea of moving to Promise, Maine a place where miracles happen as a last ditch effort. As Cam spends the summer in Promise, she checks items off of her flamingo list. Love may be in the air between Cam and golden boy Asher.
Oh, friends, The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder affected me. It’s third person and by distance of the narrator, we get to watch Cam royally fail, but also triumph. You can’t predict whether she lives or not because The Probability Of Miracles is not told in first person. We get to see Cam gain hope and a new zest and appreciation for life. Plus the cameo of adorable animals. Hell, I’m a bit choked up writing this review. If you want a book that will slam into you and tug the hell out of your emotions, The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder is for you.
I’m surprised The Probability Of Miracles is Wendy Wunder’s debut novel. Dude, Wendy Wunder has the finesse of a much more experienced writer judging by my emotions and how The Probability of Miracles still lingers in my brain.
I listened to the audiobook of The Probability Of Miracles by Wendy Wunder produced by Penguin Audio while driving and working out and found myself taking a longer route just to listen more. Emma Galvin handles Campbell’s story with grace — infusing emotion at just the right moment. Galvin’s voice is perfect for Cam as there’s an attitude behind it. The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder is 8 hours unabridged. It’s another great audio for newcomers to try out.
