The Probability of Miracles

The Probability of Miracles - Wendy Wunder Note: I read this early January. I'm writing this at the end of February. I apologize now that this review sucks.I totally LOVED this book when I first finished and while I still really, really enjoyed it, I don't think I'd call it a favorite now.Cam was pretty awesome. She was snarky and she didn't just mope about everything. She had this wonderfully dry sense of humor and she wasn't always pitying herself or looking for sympathy. The cancer was just a part of her life, like her hair color. I also loved how her mother didn't care for the pity crap either. Most of the time, Cam was just her daughter. She was willing to do somewhat crazy things to try and make her daughter better, like moving across the country, but it wasn't a constant coddle fest or anything. I loved it.I really liked the writing. It was third person, which was different from a lot of YA books I read, and it was pretty light and fun all things considered. All the characters were well crafted and interesting and it was never easy to predict. And Asher? I LOVED Asher guys. Loved.The ending was fabulous. From a very personal standpoint, I wasn't really happy with it because I didn't really feel like I got the answers I wanted. But stepping back a bit from my obsession with closure, it was so well done and different and unexpected and brilliant.This was really just an excellent book. It obviously sticks pretty well if I remember this much almost two months later. It just didn't totally blow my mind like I originally thought it did. If you like snark, honest teenage voices, contemporary, romances, or books with all the emotions, this is definitely one to add to your lists.
