Well-written YA book on a difficult subject

by TheGriffin on Apr 3, 2007

Adolescence is such an intense time emotionally for almost everyone, but add to that a crazy family, a childhood full of neglect and invisibility, and challenge upon challenge, and adolescence becomes a nightmare of madness. The wonderful thing about this book, one of them, is that the author writes with unflinching honesty, creating a character that is deep, full, complex and believable. Miracle becomes someone we might have known, or know, or a part of ourself, maybe one we have yet to meet. I would recommend this book for young adult readers, actually age 13 and up, who may find a message of hope through love, honesty and truth under the toughest circumstances that is often hard to find in our daily lives.
