MILLY KAUFMAN IS an ordinary American teenager living in Vermont—until she meets Pablo, a new student at her high school. His exotic accent, strange fashion sense, and intense interest in Milly force her to confront her identity as an adopted child from Pablo’s native country. As their relationship grows, Milly decides to undertake a courageous journey to her homeland and along the way discovers the story of her birth is intertwined with the story of a country recovering from a brutal history.

Beautifully written by reknowned author Julia Alvarez, Finding Miracles examines the emotional complexity of familial relationships and the miracles of everyday life.

From AudioFile:

Adopted from a war-torn country, Millie struggles on many levels with her teenaged search for self. Her life in Vermont suddenly seems foreign when a new boy arrives from her native country. As the story unfolds, significant changes in her life culminate with a trip to her birth country. The meanings of friendship, family, romance, heritage, and the cruelty of war are all brought together as Millie finds her true home. Daphne Rubin-Vega's reading highlights the inflections and accents of a bilingual teenager and presents Millie's story in a straightforward style. However, Julia Alvarez's excellent writing is not fully successful in transcending to the spoken word. L.D.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
