Cover: 'The Wonder of All Things'

Staff Review: "The Wonder of All Things" by Jason Mott


An ordinary day turns tragic as the local air show ends in a fiery crash. 13-year-old Ava and her best friend Wash are trapped underneath the rubble of the observation tower. When Ava discovers that Wash is mortally wounded she does the impossible and heals him. In the age of technology, the whole thing is caught on video and quickly goes viral sending the world knocking at the "Miracle Child's" door. All Ava wants is for things to go back to normal, but can that possibly happen when even those closest to you want something from you? Beautifully written and emotionally gripping, this one will keep you hooked to the end.
