Miracle By Elizabeth Scott

Summary:(from goodreads) Megan is a miracle. At least, that’s what everyone says. Having survived a plane crash that killed everyone else on board, Megan knows she should be grateful just to be alive. But the truth is, she doesn’t feel like a miracle. In fact, she doesn’t feel anything at all. Then memories from the crash start coming back.Scared and alone, Megan doesn’t know whom to turn to. Her entire community seems unable—or maybe unwilling—to see her as anything but Miracle Megan. Everyone except for Joe, the beautiful boy next door with a tragic past and secrets of his own. All Megan wants is for her life to get back to normal, but the harder she tries to live up to everyone’s expectations, the worse she feels. And this time, she may be falling too fast to be saved.
Review: This is one of those books that focuses on emotional trauma of the main characters. It is definitely a character driven book and I enjoyed it. The plot was well paced and the story was wrapped up nicely but it was still easy to imagine where the characters are headed by the end. I liked Megan as a main character. The thoughts and feelings that she had seemed really realistic and it made me fell sorry for her and want her to do better. However, she was the only character I did like. The way her parents acted throughout most of the book was annoying to me. I also didn't really understand David's issues. His problem isn't really explained all that clearly and he seemed like a normal kid to me. I also didn't feel any real connection to Joe. Apart from that this is another pretty good book from Elizabeth Scott.  It is different from her other books but still really enjoyable.
