Nancy Werlin

Dear Librarian:

I've written seven young adult novels, but my most recent novel, IMPOSSIBLE, is the first time I've written the kind of 'comfort book' I most love to read. It's inspired by the old ballad Scarborough Fair, and by my own question: What is true love?

Practical, modern teenager Lucy Scarborough is cursed. She can break the curse by completing three impossible tasks: Make a shirt without needle or seam. Find an acre of land between the salt water and the sea strand. Plow the land using a goat's horn and a single grain of corn. But time is running out.

IMPOSSIBLE was starred by Booklist, School Library Journal, and Kirkus. It's already a New York Times bestseller. I hope you'll find a place for it on your library shelves, and in your readers' hands.
