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 renowned author Julia Alvarez, Finding Miracles examines the emotional complexity of familial relationships and the miracles of everyday life.

    " this book was a disappointment. i LOVED julia alvaerz's books for adults (well, some of them...such as in the time of the butterflies, one of my all-time favorites). so i was curious about her move into young adult literature & picked up this book to see what there was to see. i don't remember it so well. something about the protaganist being a teenage girl with some issues with her family & feeling isolated & weird because she is latina in a majority white community (i think the book is set in vermont, where alvarez is now a teacher), etc. i guess as far as young adult literature goes, it's pretty solid, but not being the target audience, i wasn't really swept away. the book lacked a lot of the historical drama of some of alvarez's other books, & the teenage voice tends to grate on me. i'm a terrible person because i find people between the ages of eleven & 24 absolutely insufferable, as a general rule. even fictional ones. with a few notable exceptions. but not this protag. what i learned from this book is that i should devote myself to re-reading the alvarez books i already know i love & leave her YA stuff to actual young adults.

    " Yet another YA novel I read for a class. Until reading other people's reviews I didn't know Alvarez wrote 'grown-up' books. I'll have to check them out. I liked this book well enough. It's definitely for a youth audience; and not likely to be enjoyed by boys. But as a girl myself, I liked the character development. And though of course she has to get the guy and live happily ever after in the end, it was nice to get a glimpse into some of the personal turmoils/deceptions that we all experience. "

    " Complex without being too busy. I did think not naming Milly's birth country was unnecessarily distracting. "

    " This is a good book. There's a'lot emotion and drama put into it. It's about a girl named Milagros (Miracles in English). She was adopted and still wonders about her parents and where they are. Throughout the book she struggles to find out who her real mom was. I recommend this book to someone that enjoys drama. Also, to those who simply just enjoy books. "
