All the Crooked Saints (Hardcover)
In the town of Bicho Raro, there lives the infamous Soria family. The Sorias have inherited the ability to perform miracles to the travelers passing by the dessert. The miracles, however, are quite unusual, as they draw out a person's darkness whether it is a physical or mental trait. It is the person's responsibility to defeat the darkness within as the Sorias cannot aid the traveler or else larger consequences will be faced. When Daniel Soria, the Saint of Bicho Raro, is forced to face his own darkness, the Sorias and the travelers must come together to not only face their own fears, but Daniel's as well. This novel was so captivating, filled with many metaphors and elegant lines. Maggie Stiefvater does not disappoint in the slightest with her newest stand-alone.— Kinda

Here is a thing everyone wants:
Here is a thing everyone fears:
What it takes to get one.
Any visitor to Bicho Raro, Colorado, is likely to find a landscape of dark saints, forbidden love, scientific dreams, miracle-mad owls, estranged affections, one or two orphans, and a sky full of watchful desert stars.
At the heart of this place you will find the Soria family, who all have the ability to perform unusual miracles. And at the heart of this family are three cousins longing to change its future: Beatriz, the girl without feelings, who wants only to be free to examine her thoughts; Daniel, the Saint of Bicho Raro, who performs miracles for everyone but himself; and Joaquin, who spends his nights running a renegade radio station under the name Diablo Diablo.
They are all looking for a miracle. But the miracles of Bicho Raro are never quite what you expect.
