Review: Almost Impossible by Nicole Williams

Book Blurb

When Jade decided to spend the summer with her aunt in California, she thought she knew what she was getting into. But nothing could have prepared her for Quentin. Jade hasn't been in suburbia long and even she knows her annoying (and annoyingly cute) next-door neighbor spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E.

And when Quentin learns Jade plans to spend her first American summer hiding out reading books, he refuses to be ignored. Sneaking out, staying up, and even a midnight swim, Quentin is determined to give Jade days--and nights--worth remembering.

But despite their storybook-perfect romance, every time Jade moves closer, Quentin pulls away. And when rumors of a jilted ex-girlfriend come to light, Jade knows Quentin is hiding a secret--and she's determined to find out what it is.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Jade is planning the perfect summer as a normal teen.  Her life is anything but normal.  She tours with her mom and the band Shrinking Violets.  I can see her curiosity about whether she is missing anything.
There are definitely some issues in her family.  Her aunt Julie is a control freak with a workaholic husband.  Jade feels a tad lost since she doesn’t know her father.  It is bound to be a summer to remember.  She gets her first job at the local pool and her meeting with Quentin is hysterical.  I love how the author set up the situation.  He was such a jerk.  I really thought she might punch him.  Then enter the apology and the challenges.  He could really read her pretty well.  Jade had to let go and learn to live a little.

I truly loved her character, she was open-minded and a truly nice person.  Of course, the author gave her a summer she would never forget.  Secrets were front and center as she also searched for her dad.  Then throw in Aunt Julie and, wow, nothing like a “normal” teenage summer.  It was a great story that I couldn’t put down with great characters.  I give it a 5 out of 5.
