The Ninja Reviews. . ."Impossible" by Nancy Werlin

"Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to the one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine…”

Begins the ancient rhyme and classic song that has become a curse to the women in the Scarborough family. At seventeen, Lucy Scarborough discovers that unless she can fulfill the three quests written in the song, she will fall into madness at the birth of her child. Lucy has seen the curse at work in her mother’s life but is unsure if it is mental illness or another darker evil that haunts her. Her loving foster parents and her lifelong friend, Zach, are determined that she will not face her fate alone. Thus begins the race to unravel the puzzle of the rhyme and save Lucy from a timeless evil.

Impossible is an awesome story of love, friendship, and forgiveness. The characters are believable and engaging and will completely suck you into their world. I found myself reading faster and faster as Lucy’s time ran out. A great summer read you won’t be able to put down!
