Joel will soon be twelve, and he thinks nothing's going on in the small community where he lives. But he's wrong there. One day, a Miracle happens to him. He's very nearly run over by a bus, but is miraculously unhurt. Now, what do you do when a Miracle has come your way? Shouldn't you show gratitude somehow? Surely a good deed of some sort is in order. But how? A humorous, wise,and understanding portrait of a boy about to leave childhood behind him, this is an independent sequel to the award-winning and much-praised A Bridge to the Stars.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Mankell's story always hovers on the edge of magical realism but he suggests that there is no magic as powerful as the imagination of a melancholy child." -- Stephanie Merritt * Observer *
"Translated beautifully by Laurie Thompson . . . there is no need to have read the previous book to be entranced by this one." -- Jo Klaces * TES *
"Beautifully written" * The Bookseller *
"A concise and questioning narrative that will amply reward reflective readers aged 10 and above." * School Librarian *
"Through Joel, Mankell invites us to think about what it is that makes us who we are, in this beautiful book." * Booktrusted.co.uk *
