Genre: Young Adult Romance
Actual Rating: 3.5 stars
Almost Impossible is a great book for teens and young adults. Normally, I try and stay away from YA romances because they seem... Immature? But I was drawn to this one based on the cover and description. All in all, I think Nicole did a great job with this story. She made her characters believable and even added real world problems that affect (or CAN affect) any teen. I won't say what because it would spoil the story, but it's interesting to say the least. Now, one of the things I didn't care for was the fact that I kept asking myself "what is the point of this book". At some points it felt like it was going nowhere aside from two kids getting to know one another. Towards the end however, things picked up and secrets that were silently kept throughout the story were revealed. For some, this "secret" sort of comes out of nowhere. But I can see how it makes sense for the characters age.
Anyway, with all that aside, I think this is a good coming of age, young adult romance. There isn't any sex or foul language so I think readers 14+ would be good candidates for the story. In fact, I think it will sell well for this age group. It's an appealing story and a sweet, quick read. Fans of the author, if you enjoy teen/young adult books then you may like this as well. But be warned, it truly IS targeted for the younger age group so some things will come off as a bit immature to you.
