On the heels of his critically acclaimed and New York Times bestselling debut novel, The Returned, Jason Mott delivers a spellbinding tale of love and sacrifice On an ordinary day, at an air show like that in any small town across the country, a plane crashes into a crowd of spectators. After the dust clears, a thirteen-year-old girl named Ava is found huddled beneath a pocket of rubble with her best friend, Wash. He is injured and bleeding, and when Ava places her hands over him, his wounds disappear. Ava has an unusual gift: she can heal others of their physical ailments. Until the air show tragedy, her gift was a secret. Now the whole world knows, and suddenly people from all over the globe begin flocking to her small town, looking for healing and eager to catch a glimpse of The Miracle Child. But Ava's unique ability comes at a great cost, and as she grows weaker with each healing, she soon finds herself having to decide just how much she's willing to give up in order to save the ones she loves most. Elegantly written, deeply intimate and emotionally astute, The Wonder of All Things is an unforgettable story and a poignant reminder of life's extraordinary gifts.

Ava and Wash have an once-in-a-lifetime friendship. The story presents so many moral dilemmas based on Ava's gift. A slow read but a good one.

How would any of us react if we had a loved one with a terminal condition and believed that a child in the town could heal?
The characters in this story are well developed and believable.
A Jodi Picoult read a like.

Molasses in February springs to mind. This book was slow, slow, slow. There were some very well-written passages, but too many confusing passages for me to recommend this book. I am not sure if the author was employing this as a method or if it was simply sloppy story-telling. For instance in one scene we are told that "to make things worse" there was no moon. A few paragraphs later Wash sees Ava's face in the moonlight. Huh? There are several of these anomalies throughout the book that I stumbled over and they detracted from my enjoyment of this book. And did I mention it was really slow?
