My Own Miraculous; Joshilyn Jackson

2013-William Morrow Impulse
Harper Collins

 My Own Miraculous begins with an intro to Shandi Pierce, the young mother of three-year-old Natty. 

"I was twenty-one years old when I became a mother, though if I wanted to get technical, Natty happened three years and nine months earlier, inventing himself secretly inside me in the summertime when I was seventeen.  That was just biology. It didn't instantly remake me as a mother......
I wasn't a mother, I was just a daughter with a son."

I was quickly drawn into the Shandi and Natty story, anxious to learn more about Natty who is not a typical 3-year old. He can read and even solve a Rubic’s cube in 10 minutes. His mom is not sure what to make of his ability and plans to have him tested. Unfortunately Natty’s gift has also attracted the attention of a girl who now seems obsessed with him.

My Own Miraculous is a very brief read. The eBook ends with an intro to Somebody Else’s Love Story , a continuation of the Shandi / Natty story.  I am very anxious to continue their story which will be released this month.  Although this was very good, I don’t think you need to read this prequel, before you read, Someone Else’s Love Story.  

Honestly, I don't think I've ever been disappointed by this author. 

(4.5/5 stars)


  1. I enjoy this author, as well. Her books tend to be entertaining and with seem to have just enough depth that they don't feel like a guilty pleasure. I'm looking forward to this one.

  2. Jackson's never disappointed me either. I listened to the audio of this book, which she narrates, and it is fantastic!

  3. Count me in too as someone who has never felt disappointed by her!

  4. I've had A Grown Up Kind of Pretty on my ipod for ages... really need to read this author. Glad she's written another winner!

  5. I've got this on audio and need to get to it.

  6. Someone Else's Love Story is on my soon TBR pile. Maybe I should sneak this one in before I start it!

  7. That opening is great - I totally want to read more about these characters!

  8. I just read the first chapter of Someone Else's Love Story and just love Jackson's voice. I'm trying to decided if I want to go back and read this first. I know I don't have to but I hate backstory that I missed!

  9. Now I must read this one! I enjoyed the character Shandi Pierce.
