Miracle

(Simon Pulse)

By Elizabeth Scott 
Simon Pulse, 224 pp., $16.99 
Megan Hathaway used to be normal — a typical high school senior and avid soccer player returning from summer camp. But after a terrible airplane crash — of which she’s the sole survivor — she’s labeled a "miracle" — and no one (not her parents, teachers, or friends) seems to recognize she’s suffering from terrible guilt and post-traumatic stress disorder. Things start to get very slightly better when Margaret, a nurse who served in Vietnam during the war, recognizes Megan's symptoms, and when Megan’s hunky teenage neighbor (who is dealing with his own demons) encourages her to talk. 
Ages 14-up.
