The Question of Miracles
THE QUESTION OF MIRACLES by Elana Arnold. HMH, 2015 (February).
Iris and her family have moved to Oregon where she knows no one and where it seems to rain every single day. She is more than unhappy; she is miserable. She is still grieving the loss of her best friend, Sarah. She would give anything for a miracle to happen so that she could see her friend again. And then Iris meets Boris who is himself a sort of miracle. Boris, the mouth-breather, becomes Iris' friend. But Iris still wonders how some people can receive miracles while others do not. This incredible book examines faith, friendship, and family realistically for middle grade readers. Ladder to COALTOWN JESUS and GODLESS.
