Reviews

"Redman explores faith, the intertwined nature of sorrow and joy, and the transformative process of grief through Wunder's eyes in a part-fantasy, part-realistic adventure with genuinely humorous moments. . .Layered, engaging, and emotionally true." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Redman's gorgeous debut uses a cozy world of bright characters to tackle themes of death, grief, and doubt with gentle compassion and a light touch. . .[A] moving lesson for young people learning to cope with both the good and the bad that life has to offer." --Booklist

"The lesson that miracles can still exist in the midst of tragedy is especially powerful. . .This feel-good novel will have readers reflecting on events in their own lives (and very likely also reaching for a box of tissues)." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Infused with a whisper of fabulism, this debut's quiet exploration of love and loss will remind readers to recognize the magic in the mundane." --Publishers Weekly

"A stunning story expressing the complexities and mysteries of love and death in all of its light and darkness. A beautifully rendered and meaningful read for young readers asking deep questions." --Veera Hiranandani, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Night Diary

"Filled with longing, love, hope, and wisdom, The Miraculous is a small miracle of a book." --Alison McGhee, author of Shadow Baby and the #1 New York Times-bestseller Someday

"Exquisitely crafted, serious, yet woven through with wry humor, this story's miracles are its fierce and tender characters. I loved this extraordinary debut." --Leslie Connor, National Book Award Finalist author of The Truth as Told by Mason Buttle
