Publisher's Summary

A car accident has left young Anabelle Vincent in a comalike state - unable to move or speak. Her mother spends her days and nights taking care of her frozen child, but Anabelle's father has left: unable to cope, broken under the responsibility of having been the car's driver. Then, one day, a visiting friend experiences what seems like a miracle. She thinks it's because of Anabelle. Word spreads. There are more visitors. More miracles. But is there a connection? And does it matter? Will Anabelle ever wake up, and if she does, will the miracles cease?
Andrew Roe has crafted an intricate story told by Anabelle, her parents, and the visitors, who include neighbors, a priest, the affluent, and the downtrodden. What becomes clear is that life's cruelties show no prejudice, but becoming a believer - in something, anything, even if you don't understand it - can bring salvation.
More than a novel about a family in crisis, The Miracle Girl tells a larger cultural story of how we live and hope and dream.

Critic Reviews

"In Andrew Roe's TThe Miracle Girl, we're reminded that the desire for miracles always connotes dissatisfaction, even as it articulates a hope. Roe deftly explores this paradox with clean, sharp prose; the novel's intuitive, shifting structure generates a multi-faceted exploration into what it means to believe. Also, Roe's novel examines the strange responsibility of being believed in. A stunning, confident debut." (Peter Rock, author of My Abandonment and The Shelter Cycle)
