Was it just bad luck for Ana Dominguez to call out the most popular girl in school, Riley, for cheating on a quiz in front of her crush, resulting in both of them getting detention? Or was it fate?

Ana just came to Half Moon Bay from San Jose, and starting a new school definitely isn't easy, especially since she doesn't know anyone there and still hasn't made any friends.

Her first time in detention (ever), Ana is a little relieved that her favorite teacher is the one overlooking the class. That is until she gives the students an assignment which involves getting into groups of four, writing an essay, and sharing it with the group. What makes the situation even worse is that Riley is in her group.

Each girl begins to read her story on the one moment that changed her life forever. Turns out all four had survived accidents that could have cost them their lives. Automatically, Ana and Zoey see something special between them and they know it wasn't just a coincidence that the four girls were grouped together. Starting a new friendship will be easy - getting the other two to join them is the hard part.

Four completely opposite girls will journey into a friendship that may just last forever. From faith to family to guys and school, each will battle them all, but they have each other to help them get through it.

A promising beginning to a new series, THE MIRACLE GIRLS will entice all readers who enjoy a well-written and thoughtful novel. The characters are well-developed, each girls' story is extremely heartbreaking, and their blossoming friendship is just heartwarming.

Dayton and Vanderbilt have outdone themselves this time, and the best part is, there will be more books being released.

    Better than I was thinking, with a good message

    I actually picked this book up because I thought it might be something good for my youth group to read for a book project, and I decided to review it on here. The Miracle Girls are a group of girls who by random chance, meet at detention their freshman year in school. They find out that they all have been saved from death by miracles, and they feel called to come together as a group. To complicate things for Ana, the voice of the book, she is locked in academic battle with Riley, who is one of the miracle girls, but she refuses to acknowledge the group.
    The setting is good for freshman to sophomores in high school because it deals with the drama and the troubles of these girls who are new to the high school scene and the struggle to make a place for themselves. Personally I thought some of the scenes were not all true for my experience in school, but still the message was good.
    I would say that if you are wanting a book to share with a youth group, or maybe have a group of friends that you know are struggling with things, this might be a good book to share.

    Very good!!

    The Miracle Girls was one of the best series I have read yet. A very good friend of mine recommended this book to me. I think that anyone could read this book but, the type of person who would like this book best, would be girls. The reason I say that is because this book would be considered a really feminine book. I say it's feminine because in the book there's love, it's all about the lives of the friends and how they became miracles but also the point of view is a woman's. The age of people who might like to read this would probably 7-18. This book had adventures, real life problems and the complications of high school life. After I was done reading The Miracle Girls I had to read the rest of the series as soon as possible. When you read this book it has a good ending but you want to know what happens to the other main characters in the book. The book is voiced by one of the main characters Ana. I can vouch for the fact that the narrative voice is very authentic. It is sarcastic, intelligent, and distinctly teenaged. Reading the book feels like eavesdropping on a teenage girl's conversation with her best friend. Ana was the one who mostly got the girls together and thought the idea was great. Ana is really smart but scared to do anything dangerous, mostly because of her parents and her grades. I thought the best main character out of all of them was Christine. She was my favorite because she was really creative but really quiet. When people read a book they usually like the characters that are completely opposite of them or really close to the same attitude of themselves. Another character in the book was Zoë; she was an emotional, determined and earthy child. The last main character was Christina; she was the most popular person in the whole school so she was hard to get into the group of friends. Christina was wild, adventurous but also nice and caring to some people. The idea that Zoe had was to get all the girls together because she knew it was their destiny that god gave them to make them come together. This book showed that miracles can happen to anyone and how it brings people together and how they become some of the best people you've ever met. There are parts in the book where I can relate to like when Ana had to move away from her home and go to some totally different place and not know anyone there. It can be difficult to meet knew people but also trying to stay connected to the friends you left behind in your old home town. In Ana's situation when she got to the new school she already made a new enemy but tried hard to make the best of her new life. Whoever that reads this book will have an awesome adventure.
