But they have never had a relationship! Present me a book containing a malicious, wanting fairy, who curses a long line of women out of spite, and I will buy into it tenfold. Lucy Scarborough, now seventeen, has always known her birth mother was Miranda Scarborough, but luck brought her into the lives of Leo and Soledad Markowitz.

Lovely, an eighteen and a twenty year old that are going to get married to start a family.

Unlike her ancestors, though, Lucy has family, friends, and other modern resources to help her out. These are the sounds of me gnashing my teeth and tearing my hair as I read this book. Despite this, I did like the easy friendship Lucy and Zack shared and how their growing feelings for each other both surprised them and made them stronger.

Oh, and this is part of a series!! Don’t get me wrong though I really thought the story was original and delivered the message that with true love things can happen.


Also, she never once considers not having the child. I realize this book is definitely not a crowd-pleaser, and it probably won’t be the one that I impossuble to most of my friends, but I totally fell in love with this modern day fairy tale with all its weirdness.


Why did I give it two stars, then? In a few words it is a contemporary suspenseful folk fantasy with some hereditary insanity, a sweet romance, and one extremely dubious and impoasible elven knight.

I know three stars isn’t the most helpful rating in the world, but I just feel like parts of this book were worth at least four and other parts made me want to abandon it completely. I just didn’t buy into Nnancy and Zach’s relationship nncy eventual marriage, nor the way Lucy’s family just accepted the curse and the tasks at hand. Most of the plot takes place inside Lucy’s house!!

YAs deserve better than this.

Impossible by Nancy Werlin

But no, the teen enters the mode super imposaible, and decides to keep her baby So, one more time. All major action takes place off screen and is merely recounted by dialogue afterward. Yes, there’s a rape in this book. I can’t get into it They made one with duct tape.

Geez Larbalestier brings impossinle adorable. Als This was a little creepy for my taste but I definitely enjoyed reading Impossible. It has been, you’ll forgive the pun, Impossible. She’s an intelligent young lady, adopted by a loving couple, and with a pretty decent life I kid you not.


Lucy is a rational teenager.

I’ve lov I vacillated between 2 stars and 3 stars in my rating. Aug 27, Jan rated it did not like it. He’s not hesitate to drop out from college, just werpin become a husband for Lucy.

Impossible (Impossible, #1) by Nancy Werlin

This is a new adult book, that preaches on the importance of family, marriage, kids very much against abortionbasically this is more whimsical than a fantasy book, yes. I wish I had thought of making a curse out of a song, that is an awesome idea and obviously worked for this novel.

This idea really struck me. And after the prom, her werlkn world is different. And I liked what Werlin did with the ballad. I’ve been thinking about this and I decided that a best friend is someone who, when they don’t understand, impossibl still understand. The bad guy, the magical entity that has been chasing all the women in Lucy’s family, also has his hand on changing Lucy’s day welrin pill, how convenient is this?
