The Orphanage of Miracles by Amy Neftzger
Hidden in a forest is an orphanage filled with children who create miracles. At least, that is what they are supposed to do. Except on Mondays. Everyone knows there are no miracles on Mondays. Nicholas, Jovan and Maggie struggle to keep their plants alive and to create a miracle - even though no one tells them how to create one, but together, they persevere. Kelsey goes on a quest to find a way to stop the war and help her family. Her journey brings her to strange places with mysterious women and a small companion who speaks to the birds and the strange women, but to no one else. Can they find the orphanage? It would take a miracle.
Lovely magical tale.
