Miracle is tormented by her classmates, even by Oli, the boy she can’t get out of her head. She fears for her agoraphobic mother and for her angelic, quake-damaged brother. When Oli plays a cruel trick on Miracle, a chain of devastating events is set off. Then her dad is arrested. Miracle takes the full weight on her shoulders. How can she convince the town of her dad’s innocence?

Miracle Jamieson is negotiating being a teenager in small town Boorunga. She worries about her freckles, pines after her first love, Oli, and puts up with the school bullies. She obeys her cohort’s random rules: “For Year 9 girls, eating at school was even less cool than wearing a jumper”. She finds her dad embarrassing, and her mum hopeless. Things are pretty stink really, but Miracle has no idea how much worse things are going to get!
