Summary
Miracle McCloy has always known that there is something different about her: She was pulled from the womb of a dead woman—a "miracle" birth—and Gigi, her clairvoyant grandmother, expects Miracle to be a prodigy, much like Dane, the girl's brooding novelist father. Having been raised according to a set of mystical rules and beliefs, Miracle is unable to cope in the real world. Lost in a desperate dance among lit candles, Miracle sets herself afire and is hospitalized. There Dr. DeAngelis, a young psychiatrist, helps her through her painful struggle to take charge of her life
Summary
A young girl from a dysfunctional family creates for herself an alternative world which nearly results in her death but which ultimately leads her to reality
