On an ordinary day, at an air show like that in any small town across the country, a plane crashes into a crowd of spectators. After the dust clears, a thirteen-year-old girl named Ava is found huddled beneath a pocket of rubble with her best friend, Wash. He is injured and bleeding, and when Ava places her hands over him, his wounds disappear.

This was a wonderful book and makes you think.

Ava and Wash have an once-in-a-lifetime friendship. The story presents so many moral dilemmas based on Ava's gift. A slow read but a good one.

How would any of us react if we had a loved one with a terminal condition and believed that a child in the town could heal?
The characters in this story are well developed and believable.
A Jodi Picoult read a like.

Molasses in February springs to mind. This book was slow, slow, slow. There were some very well-written passages, but too many confusing passages for me to recommend this book. I am not sure if the author was employing this as a method or if it was simply sloppy story-telling. For instance in one scene we are told that "to make things worse" there was no moon. A few paragraphs later Wash sees Ava's face in the moonlight. Huh? There are several of these anomalies throughout the book that I stumbled over and they detracted from my enjoyment of this book. And did I mention it was really slow?
