A Silver Medalist in the 2012 Readers Favorite Award Contest, The Wonder of Ordinary Magic introduces us to one of fiction's most unique main characters, Bobby Weaver, a young writer who just happens to be in a coma. Deteriorating both physically and mentally while still painfully aware of what's going on around him, Bobby continues to work on the murder mystery he was writing before his life took a sudden and unexpected turn. As Bobby strives to tie up loose ends in his final story, if just for himself and his characters, the reader is given a glimpse of the life he's left behind in the form of day-in-the-life vignettes of his family. A vibrant, original story steeped in symbolism and family ties, this haunting debut explores the subtle ways lives are connected, broken, and renewed by love.
