Controversial new novel from the best-selling author of My Sister's Keeper. Do you believe in miracles? This is the question that is posed in no uncertain terms to Mariah and Faith White, a mother and daughter who quickly learn that in the modern world, a miracle is never as clear-cut as it seems. Following the sudden divorce of her parents, Faith begins to confide in an imaginary friend, which Mariah can dismiss as the product of an overactive imagination. What is more difficult to dismiss is the appearance of stigmata on her daughter's hands, and her new-found knowledge of the Bible. A girl with little religious background, Faith becomes the centre of a new world besieged by figures from the media, the medical profession and organised religion.
