Miracle Girl

When her mother is taken seriously ill, Rachel’s world is thrown into turmoil. Her maternal grandparents and her father don’t get on whilst her paternal grandparents have separated and keep a mysteriously guilty distance. Then there’s the school play in which Rachel stars as Lady Macbeth alongside, of all people, the engimatic love of her life, Scott Chambers, narcissistic but annoyingly irresistible. On top of all this there are vanishing friendships and stunning betrayals. How does anyone at sixteen years old deal with such challenges? Rachel finds a way through with wisdom, humour, honesty and love, which is why her mother calls her Miracle Girl.

“

Scott Chambers is playing Macbeth, which is good and bad – good because he’s talented and bad because he’s so arrogant – even worse because I’m mad about the boy.

    Extract: The School Play


    After each performance we got a standing ovation. I knew people would clap, because that’s what they’re supposed to do, but they clapped hard and stood up and wouldn’t let us go. I think they knew how much work we’d put into it, but that wouldn’t have been enough without a decent performance and I knew we were at least half decent. A couple of people in the audience shouted “Bravo! Bravo!” which was funny, but I think they were teachers.
    That last night, I saw mum when I was bowing and I’ll never forget her face. She was so proud. She was wearing a head scarf because her hair had started to fall out. The chemo does that. It wasn’t bad, but she felt embarrassed by it and wanted to cover it up. She never used make-up and she didn’t now, even though her skin was very pale, but she looked beautiful sitting in her wheelchair with her shiny eyes. I was so glad she made it.

Dedication

Book dedications have always intrigued me, but so far I’ve never seen a website dedication. Perhaps this is the first. As it says in The Last Garden, “So special, so loved, so missed.” This little dedication is For Ana.
