The Question of Miracles by Elana K. Arnold
Iris's parents have moved her to a new home in a new state in the hope of helping her deal with the death of her best friend. Iris is lost, thinking about big questions of life and death and whether Sarah might be able to find her now that she has moved. Iris starts hanging out with Boris, a boy without any other friends, even though she doesn't like him much at first. Her interest in Boris increases when she finds out that he is going to be visited by the Vatican to see if his life was saved by a miracle when he was a baby.
I'm honestly having a hard time remembering much about this book which should tell you the impact it had on me. Aside from that, I also don't believe it's going to grab my students much at all.
