Product description


2017 ILA-CBC Children's Choice List   "A tearjerker with a brain, this could prompt discussion not only of the right to die issue but also power and fairness." Bulletin   * "Arnold’s descriptive prose and short, episodic chapters warmly relay the family’s struggles. It’s an engaging, emotional ride as Odette learns the truth of one of her grandmother’s sayings: 'Even in the bad... there is opportunity for good.'" Publishers Weekly, STARRED review   "An affecting, delicately handled story of growing up." Kirkus   Praise for The Question of Miracles:  * "…Unfolds with heartbreaking believability."Publishers Weekly, starred review   * "…Will catch readers, and help pull them toward seeking answers of their own for the story’s very large questions."Booklist, starred review
