Book Review #293 - Miracle by Elizabeth Scott


Megan survived the plane crash—but can she survive the aftermath? An intense, emotional novel from the author of The Unwritten Rule and Between Here and Forever.

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....
My Rating: 3/5
This is the first book I have read written by Elizabeth Scott. From other reviews I have read on this book it seems her writing style takes time to get used to.
I really liked the premise for this book which is why I decided to read it.

I wanted to like Megan but overall I failed to connect with her as I found it really hard to understand her. I also found her parents really annoying. I didn't understand how they expected her to be the same after she suffered that much trauma.

Overall I thought that this book was a pretty accurate portrayal of someone stuggling with post traumatic stress disorder but I just felt like something was missing. 


  1. This is definitely not my favorite Elizabeth Scott so I hope you'll check out more of her work because I really do think she's amazing!

    1. Okay, thanks. Which of her other books do you recommend?
