Hi, YABC readers! Today, I’m launching the pre-order campaign for my middle-grade magical contemporary THE MIRACULOUS!
THE MIRACULOUS is a story about a miracle-collecting boy, a cape-wearing girl, a maybe-witch in a maybe-magical house, and a journey filled with adventure, friendship, healing, and all the wonder that surrounds us. It’s about grief and belief, hope and memory, and big questions and big feelings that come with growing up. Watch this beautiful book trailer if you want to get a feel for the story:

Getting to publish THE MIRACULOUS—a story directly from my heart that I’m so proud of—has been a dream-come-true. I’ve been so amazed by the support and interest the story has received already from educators, librarians, kids, and other very wise adult readers who love middle-grade fiction.
So this is my way to say thank you to everyone who buys, requests, reads, connects with, supports THE MIRACULOUS. I appreciate you all so much!
Meet The Miraculous!
In the tradition of heartwrenching and hopeful middle grade novels such as Bridge to Terabithia comes Jess Redman's stunning debut about a young boy who must regain his faith in miracles after a tragedy changes his world.
Eleven-year-old Wunder Ellis is a miracle-collector. In a journal he calls The Miraculous, he records stories of the inexplicable and the extraordinary. And he believes every single one. But then his newborn sister dies, at only eight days old. If that can happen, then miracles can’t exist. So Wunder gets rid of The Miraculous. He stops believing.
Then he meets Faye―a cape-wearing, outspoken girl with losses of her own. Together, they find an abandoned house by the cemetery and a mysterious old woman who just might be a witch. The old woman asks them for their help. She asks them to believe. And they go on a journey that leads to friendship, to adventure, to healing―and to miracles.
The Miraculous is Jess Redman’s sparkling debut novel about facing grief, trusting the unknown, and finding brightness in the darkest moments.
Meet Jess Redman!
Jess Redman has wanted to be an author since age six, when her poem “I Read and Read and Read All Day” appeared in a local anthology. It took a little while though. First, she did things like survive middle school, travel around the world, become a therapist, and have two kids.
But then finally, her six-year-old dream came true! Her middle-grade debut, THE MIRACULOUS, will be published by FSG/Macmillan on July 30, 2019. Her second middle-grade novel, QUINTESSENCE, will be out on July 28, 2020. You can find her at www.JessRedman.com.
She still reads and reads and reads all day.
Five winners will each receive a copy of The Miraculous (Hess Redman) ~ (US Only)

Very good video, with lots of interesting and interesting details. I really like your share, hope that you will have many interesting and interesting articles in the future.
Wow, what a lovely cover! And honestly I just have some random impressions to share regarding it. First, its coloring, the characters’ clothing... make me think of an autumn day fading to evening. Second, speaking of the characters, a relationship is established, visually, between the three who appear on the cover... the two children on bikes, the solitary figure in the porch doorway. Third and finally, the setting, with its woods and Victorian-type house, has fairytale vibes!
The synopsis speaks to the (magical?) connection between the three central characters. I can’t wait to learn more about them, their names, their pasts, and how their journeys cross moving forward!
I would LOVE this as a read-aloud for my middle school students.
