The book The Probability of Miracles is about a girl named Campbell who has been plagued by cancer for seven years, and does not have much time left. The doctors have done everything they can, and, in a last-ditch effort to cure Cam, her mother moves Cam and her sister from Florida all the way to Promise, Maine, which has been dubbed a “miracle town.” I thought the book had a good, strong plot, but, given its subject matter, I though it could have been a bit more insightful. It was a good story, but it taught no valuable lesson. All in all, it was an enjoyable read, and that’s about it.
