Megan survived the plane crash—but can she survive the aftermath? An intense, emotional novel from the author of The Unwritten Rule and Between Here and Forever.


MiracleMegan is a miracle. At least, that’s what everyone says. Having survived a plane crash that killed everyone else on board, Megan knows she should be grateful just to be alive. But the truth is, she doesn’t feel like a miracle. In fact, she doesn’t feel anything at all. Then memories from the crash start coming back.

Scared and alone, Megan doesn’t know whom to turn to. Her entire community seems unable—or maybe unwilling—to see her as anything but Miracle Megan. Everyone except for Joe, the beautiful boy next door with a tragic past and secrets of his own. All Megan wants is for her life to get back to normal, but the harder she tries to live up to everyone’s expectations, the worse she feels. And this time, she may be falling too fast to be saved....

Oh gosh! Where to start on this one... *sigh* I loved the premise of this book, and was really interested in reading it. The story progressed slowly, and I kept sticking with it, hoping it would grow on me. Halfway through it became apparent that this just wasn't for me, but I wanted to stick with it until the end. Hoping that along the way something phenominal would happen and I'd grow to really love it! Sadly, that didn't happen for me.

The main character Megan was okay. I didn't like her or dislike her. I did however, feel really sorry for her. She went through a terrible accident, and was the only survivor. Naturally, she's really confused and extremely shaken up.

Then came in Joe. *sigh* I really liked Joe! These two character's really bonded and understood each other in a way that no other two people could. There was no insta-love or warm my insides love between them. I think I would've liked a little more in the romance department between these two. Just a little bit of the warm fuzzies would've been nice! I'm a girl, what can I say! haha

I think what really bothered me throughout this entire book, is how obvious it is that Megan  is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Yet no one, not her family, her friends, her teachers, her therapist, or even her guidance counselor at school, tells her this. Seriously guys??? Ugh! I really wanted to desperately write myself into the story, and say "Hey! Megan, you have PTSD! THAT is what is wrong with you!"

Overall the story was okay. I didn't hate, but I didn't love it either. It was just so-so for me. I've heard this author's other work is really great, and I will definitely check out her other future endeavors!

  4. Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy it, I was thinking about reading this one when it came out but I can't deal with another slow read right now. This will probably be something I pick up at the library one day.
