Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

MILLY KAUFMAN IS an ordinary American teenager living in Vermont—until she meets Pablo, a new student at her high school. His exotic accent, strange fashion sense, and intense interest in Milly force her to confront her identity as an adopted child from Pablo’s native country. As their relationship grows, Milly decides to undertake a courageous journey to her homeland and along the way discovers the story of her birth is intertwined with the story of a country recovering from a brutal history.

Beautifully written by reknowned author Julia Alvarez, Finding Miracles examines the emotional complexity of familial relationships and the miracles of everyday life.

From the Hardcover edition.

The book starts out a little slow because Milly seems to just complain about everything, but as you reach the end of part one it picks up and the second part is extremely interesting. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone that is trying to understand who they are, regardless of their age.
