Goodreads Synopsis:

Here is a thing everyone wants: a miracle.
Here is a thing everyone fears: what it takes to get one.

Any visitor to Bicho Raro, Colorado is likely to find a landscape of dark saints, forbidden love, scientific dreams, miracle-mad owls, estranged affections, one or two orphans, and a sky full of watchful desert stars.

At the heart of this place you will find the Soria family, who all have the ability to perform unusual miracles. And at the heart of this family are three cousins longing to change its future: Beatriz, the girl without feelings, who wants only to be free to examine her thoughts; Daniel, the Saint of Bicho Raro, who performs miracles for everyone but himself; and Joaquin, who spends his nights running a renegade radio station under the name Diablo Diablo.

They are all looking for a miracle. But the miracles of Bicho Raro are never quite what you expect.

Review:

This book was amazing! It definitely lived up to my expectations.

I love Maggie’s style of writing. It’s so unique and mysterious. It has a fairytale quality to it, which makes you want to believe all the magical things that happen to the characters. The third person omniscient narrator also adds to this fairytale feeling, since the narrator knows everything about all of the characters.

The magical elements of the story make the plot unpredictable. It was exciting to see what would happen next.

What is so funny about Maggie’s books is that it’s hard to describe what they are about. This synopsis gives just a glimpse of what happens. There are so many strange things that happen, that it’s hard to describe much without giving away too much. But I highly recommend this book for fans of paranormal fiction!

I met Maggie earlier this week and she’s so awesome! I’ll write a post about that event later in the week.
