Lively, pitch-perfect and assured . . . Roe’s story feels just right for our desperate and despairing time, when a miracle--any miracle--will do.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred reviewThe crowds keep coming to the small house on Shaker Street. More and more every day it seems. They come to see eight-year-old Anabelle Vincent, the little girl who should have died but didn’t, who lies in a comalike state, unable to move or speak. They come because a visitor experienced what seemed like a miracle caused by Anabelle. Word spread. There were more visitors, more miracles. Anabelle’s story has been picked up by television and the Internet, and the visitors believe--devoutly, desperately. But is this the divine at work or something else?This impressive debut novel is ultimately about how becoming a believer--in something, anything, even if you don’t understand it--can sustain you.“[An] assured debut . . . The Miracle Girl is a hopeful meditation on the mysteries of faith.” —New York Times Book Review“An incisive and insightful critique of America, investigating where we put our faith and why.” —Doug Dorst, author of S. and Alive in Necropolis“A whirlwind of commentary on the nature of hope and mysticism . . . A worthwhile journey highlighting the necessity of seeking the miraculous in the mundane.” —The Kansas City Star“To believe or not to believe--that is the question facing all who are touched by Anabelle, the comatose ‘miracle girl’ at the swirling center of Andrew Roe’s dazzling debut . . . An uplifting miracle of a book.” —Will Allison, author of Long Drive Home
