Staff Reviews


This book. Oh, this book. I don't even know where to start. Maybe with the characters - complex and mysterious, frightened and flawed, brave and miraculous. Maybe with the music - an celebration of the music of the 60's and pirate radio. Maybe with the light - bright miracles that make you reconsider what you most fear. Maybe with the dark - dangerous miracles that make you reconsider what you most need. Maybe with the miracles themselves - two miracles, torn from heart and soul, that make you want to embrace rather than run from the darkness we each hold inside. What I know for sure is that I have to end with the writing - the glorious writing that marks any Maggie Stiefvater novel - and this is the most Stiefvater of them all. She brings magic to life magic, steeping every moment in such magic that it infuses every page, sentence, word, leaving the reader to dream of owls once it's done.

— Flannery

Description


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.
