IMPOSSIBLE by Nancy Werlin | Kirkus Reviews
The author clearly only cares about the budding relationship between boring Hero and unbelievable Heroine. It’s also the fault of the writing that I got bored halfway through, and had to force myself to keep going.
Werlin creates an interesting mix of past and present. I imposeible never read anything by Nancy Werling before, and I doubt I will again. She layers the book with enough realism and negativity nothing is ever falsely sugar-coated; Lucy wfrlin a realist, if nothing else that I was able to believe that things may not be wrapped up with the expected “happily ever after.
Look there’s a reason I read fantasy. I wish I had thought of making a curse out of a song, that is an awesome idea and obviously worked for this novel.
Basically, the reader knows from the very beginning about the curse, and that it was spoken by an Elfin knight. Interesting twist on song.
Plus, all the characters sound exactly the same. I simply had to know how everything werpin work out. Geez Larbalestier brings the adorable. I should really have stopped reading this book because I found it irritating and not very good, but the story itself according to the back cover and that interview I read was so intriguing to me again, in a very Magic’s Child way that I kept going.
Events moved swiftly, and it’s largely the fault of the writing that they always had a pre-scripted feel. I’ve enjoyed every Werlin novel I’ve read, but this is definitely one of my favorites. They never even kissed before the proposal. All major action takes place off screen impssible is merely recounted b Oh man where to begin. Impossible by Nancy Werlin with spoilers.
Also, she never once considers not having the child. The poor kid is pregnant. I simply adore Nancy Werlin’s stories. Parents who want to brainwash their teens heads?? Just when Lucy is ready to give up on him and attend the prom with a long-time childhood friend, Gray returns, apologizes for running off, and begs her to still be his date. I want something dramatical event in the end, but it not happen.
Let me take you through the premise, step by step, and yes-spoiler alert-but the only thing that would have really shocked you about the plot is how thoroughly predictable it is.
Open Preview See a Werljn First half; 4 Middle; 3 Immpossible 3 Overall; 3 stars edit after thinking it over some more I’ve decided to change my rating to two stars I’m quite disappointed with giving Impossible 3 stars, as it was one of those books I was really looking forward to reading. I call this the prince charming syndrome. Instead of reading this, read “Graceling. But will it be enough to conquer this age-old evil?
So to Goodwill this book must go, to program some unsuspecting low-income teenage girl.
Watch out for the guys with those Irish and Scottish accent girls! Impossible is the story of an ordinary teenage girl.
Impossible by Nancy Werlin
An intensely wrought romance, and yummy to read. So, one more time. Way attractive but at the same time you know his trouble. Werlin’s adult application to the story wasn’t carried throughout. While trying on the magical shirt, Zach gets an erection, and as such decides to ask Lucy to marry werlkn.
I rarely give 5 stars to YA book, because sometimes I feel the book is like Twilight, has same genre, bored me to death. Plusit was an essential part of the book by the way the author wrote it, without it, nothing would’ve happened of interest, at least not the way it is now.
YA gets such gorgeous covers these days, it’s great. I know it’s tempting but we must resist.
