The Wonder of All Things by Jason Mott

The Wonder of All Things by Jason Mott

I got this as an Advanced Reader’s Copy and decided that I should read it before it comes out. I was not super interested in the story, I just knew that I should read it, so I did. It was an okay book, what is mentioned on the back is only about what the first 20 pages are, it seems the story goes nowhere for a while then it just ends. The story seems to be about Ava, who can heal people at a cost to her, but it also seems to be about her dad, Macon,  just as much as it is about her. In this book Ava, heals her best friend in front of the entire town, then she collapses. That day she discovers that she can heal people, after the video of her healing her friend Wash goes viral, her small hometown is filled with people wanting to be healed by her. What they do not realize is that healing people kills her. After what has been mentioned on the back has happened, the plot stops developing and the story goes right into suicide, depression, growing up, family dynamics, faith and cancer. It seems that the book cannot pick just one thing to be about, but needs to be about everything. Due to the story being so scattered it was slow to read and at the end I found myself reading out of curiosity of how it could possibly end, not because it was interesting. The ending to this book I really liked and felt satisfied with the choices that were made even if the rest of the story was scattered. All in all it was an okay book to read.
