Review of Impossible by Nancy Werlin

"Lucy has nine months to break an ancient curse in order to save both herself and her unborn daughter.

Inspired by the ballad “Scarborough Fair,” this riveting novel combines suspense, fantasy, and romance for an intensely page-turning and masterfully original tale.

Lucy is seventeen when she discovers that the women of her family have been cursed through the generations, forced to attempt three seemingly impossible tasks or to fall into madness upon their child’s birth. But Lucy is the first girl who won’t be alone as she tackles the list. She has her fiercely protective foster parents and her childhood friend Zach beside her. Do they have love and strength enough to overcome an age-old evil?"

This is the first book of Nancy Werlin's that I have read and I must say that it was really, really well done. It's nice to see teenage characters actually using logic for once. I believe that Impossibles lead character Lucy Scarborough is great throughout the entire novel. It was great to see Lucy and Zach's relationship unfold as they were such great childhood friends. As many others have said in their own reviews the story that revolves around a curse in the lyrics of a song is just plain and simple a great idea to keep people intrigued. Lucy has to go on a quest to quite literally keep her sanity and break the chain of torment that has plagued her family for so many generations. Thank-you Ms. Werlin for a great happy ending story that I was just in the mood for. I look forward to reading the other novels of yours that I have read many great things about.
