Fans of Sarah Dessen, Stephanie Perkins, and Jenny Han will delight as the fireworks spark and the secrets fly in this delicious summer romance from a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.
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.
Almost Impossible is a sweet young adult story about first love, learning who you are, and discovering what life has to offer. And like every other Nicole Williams book I’ve read, I loved every bit of it.
Jade is a teenage girl who has lived out most teenagers’ fantasies her whole life – traveling the world. She’s never stayed in one place for too long, so she decides to do just that the summer before her senior year. She moves in with her aunt and uncle to experience life as a “normal” teenager.
I really liked Jade’s character. She’s strong, independent, curious and for a teenager, quite worldly. She has a lot of learning to do about herself though and I enjoyed going on that journey with her. As it is with every teenager in the history of the world, it’s not easy. There are bumps in the road and lessons she has to learn the hard way.
Quentin is also a very loveable character. He’s sweet, dreamy, and oddly responsible for a teenager. I loved the chemistry and banter between him and Jade from the very beginning.
If you’ve never read a Nicole Williams book before (first of all, shame on you, what are you even doing with your life?), then you have no idea what to expect when it comes to her writing. Her writing in this book, as with all of her others, is phenomenal. I personally really mesh with her style and voice. I loved this book and I’m happy to recommend, along with all of her other books.
