Reviewed by: Josie

When Nathan Gray, a young boy and town outcast, sees a drunken man fall and bash his head, he's worried the drunk has died. Then, miraculously, the man's head wound heals and he gets up and leaves. It's then Nathan notices the stain on the sidewalk looks like the Virgin Mary.

When news of the splotch and it's miraculous healing powers hits the national airwaves, pilgrims flow into the town. The townspeople decide to capitalize on their newfound wealth and turn the sidewalk stain into a roadside attraction. Amazingly, the splotch does seem to cure some people. Nathan, who's befriended the town's religious leaders, is a believer, but his mother, a nurse, is skeptical.

Meanwhile, Nathan has adventures with his invisible dog Chewy and naively inserts himself into the middle of a corruption scandal that leads to murder.

I loved An Imperfect Miracle. Told from Nathan's point of view, this story was charming, funny, and a bit scary at times. The way Nathan took things at face value, yet questioned everything felt very kid-like to me. It was delightful to dwell in his head for the duration.

Also the premise of the story is both hilarious and a comment on society and religion. Add to that the emotional depth (Nathan had an abusive father and is now coping with his mother's new relationship) and it becomes a brilliant story. I'll be looking for more work from this talented author.
