Do you believe in miracles? It might be difficult to believe they still happen these days. After all, it seems like all we hear about are bad things. Author Dale E. Moore’s About the Blue Racer is a story about Richard, a quiet boy, a very quiet boy. He hasn’t talked for five years. He lives with his mom, her friend Tom, and Richard’s brother and sister in a little cottage. When his mom takes him Christmas shopping in a thrift store, Richard spots a blue racer. Little did he know that chance encounter will change his life forever. About the Blue Racer shows that miracles still can and do happen in the most unexpected places. You just have to be open to them.
