My Thoughts:

I hadn't read anything by Nancy Werlin, before I purchased Impossible. The front cover image drew me in and then I read the back & thought this book is right up my alley. Impossible is centered around the song 'Scarborough Fair'.

Impossible is about 17- year old Lucy she was abandoned at a young age by her mother Miranda, Lucy doesn't know anything about her father. Miranda left Lucy in the hands of Soledad & Leo Markowitz. Miranda & Soledad go back to when Miranda was pregnant with Lucy at the age of 18 & she (Miranda) went "crazy" shortly after giving birth to Lucy.

Lucy is a normal teen, school, track team, prom, no real big intrest in guys except for Zach who she grew up with, and he's been her best friend. He knows about Lucy's "crazy" mom, Miranda who always seems to show up when things are going well and she sings her version of 'Scarborough Fair'.

Soon Lucy's life gets turned upside down after prom, she gets raped & ends up pregnant. Lucy finds her mom's diary in the bottom of a bookshelf and things start to become clear to her. The letters in Miranda's diary talk about the curse that is upon the Scarborough women. Miranda taught the song to Leo and made him promise that he would teach the song to Lucy when she grew up. The song 'Scarborough Fair' has three tasks in it to be completed for the curse to be broken.

Will Lucy be cursed as her mother & all the mothers before her? Does she break the curse or does she make a deal with the Devil?

I loved Impossible. I can't wait to read Extraordinary coming September 2010!
