Impossible by Nancy Werlin
August 12, 2009 - Amy Phelps
A story of a fight against a dark elf is based on the song "Scarborough Fair" in "Impossible" by Nancy Werlin.
Lucy is a young teen whose mother had her at 18 and immediately went insane. Lucy was luckily adopted by family friends and sees her mother, Miranda, from afar. Lucy's prom night ends in terror as she is attacked by her prom date. Lucy can't explain it, but she is sure it wasn't band member Gray that attacked her, but something using Gray's body. Now pregnant, Lucy begins to understand the link between the song her mother hums, "Scarborough Fair" and an ancient curse that has been inflicted on her family by a vengeful elvish king. If Lucy wants to undo the curse, she must perform three seemingly impossible tasks before her daughter is born and she succumbs to the same fate as her mother.
This is a great, page-turning story for those who love fairy tales with a modern setting. Teens and adults can enjoy this one.
"Impossible" is published by Speak, a division of Penguin. It is $9.99 and is for ages 14 and up.
