Fiction. It's a normal day at Rory Middle School until twelve-year-old Peter Banks finds himself caught between his raging hormones, a voyeuristic bully, and God. This smart and always-funny novel explores what happens when a young boy's earnest prayer turns a nation upside down. When Peter relays God's message that in just seven days miracles will occur to prove His existence, not one institution can resist jumping on the bandwagon. The orbiting worlds of media, religion, and politics collide, leaving everyone to question what faith really means. Biting social satire and characters to love are just part of Dally's whirlwind adventure. "In a world of read-alike books, Michelle Dally manages to find an original subject in her page-turning book. A little boy asks God for advice about the most common of secrets, setting off a series of competing agendas and explosive events. From the office of a school principal to the newsroom, from church pulpits to the halls of government, Dally tips all our sacred cows, while thoughtfully exploring the nature of miracles in the modern world. This is an author to read now, and watch in the future"--Sparkle Hayter.
