Dry, sarcastic, 16-year-old Cam Cooper has spent the last seven years in and out hospitals. The last thing she wants to do in the short life she has left is move 1,500 miles away to Promise, Maine - a place known for the miraculous events that occur there. But it's undeniable that strange things happen in Promise: everlasting sunsets; purple dandelions; flamingoes in the frigid Atlantic; an elusive boy named Asher; and finally, a mysterious envelope containing a list of things for Cam to do before she dies. As Cam checks each item off the list, she finally learns to believe - in love, in herself, and even in miracles.

A debut novel from an immensely talented new writer, The Probability of Miracles crackles with wit, romance, and humor and will leave listeners laughing and crying.

My thoughts:
The Probability of Miracles was so great. 
First of all, the narrator sounds JUST like Emma Stone (Easy A, Zombieland, The Help etc.) 
So the entire book I just kept imagining the main character, Cam, was Emma Stone. 
Which I loved, of course.
Anyway, about the book. 
It was hilarious and at the same time a tearjerker. 
I loved it. 
It made me think about how lucky I am. And how a lot of people treat life way too carelessly.
Cam's sarcastic and brutally honest attitude was hilarious. And even though she was rude to everyone around her, you could tell that deep down, she really cared a lot about people close to her. 
I could go on and on about Cam. She has that confidence about herself that makes me jealous.  
Basically whole story line of this book was just so perfect. 
The writing was incredible! 
I actually haven't read the paperback, yet. 
But I am dying to. 
I enjoy reading actual books more than listening to them on audio, I just don't have time for it anymore. Which really sucks, but at least there are some really great audiobooks out there, like The Probability of Miracles!

So be sure to put this book on your TBR list asap. 
You won't regret it.
Unless you really hate crying and having your heart fall apart from sadness.


  1. Added it!...

    and buying it as soon as I can! I'm in the mood for a tearjerker. And this one sounds better than what I initially thought.

  2. I keep hearing so many good things about this book. I definitely am going to have to get it. I agree with liking to read a book better than audio, but it's very convenient to listen to a book.

  3. Could use a good tearjerker. Just put it on hold!

  4. Just bought myself this one, so I'm glad you loved it!

  5. I loved this book and I'm glad to know the audiobook is as good! I loved the romance in this one!

  6. I have to add the book to my to-read book list then. :D It sounds great.
