Nancy Werlin

Dear Reader:

Do you have blue bookshelf books? I do. That's what I call those special, sweep-me-away books that I read over and over again, especially on a sad day.

My novel IMPOSSIBLE is the first time I've written the kind of book I most love to read. Practical, modern teenager Lucy Scarborough is cursed, like her mother and grandmother before her. She can break the curse by completing three tasks from an old song: 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.

The tasks are not possible! And time is running out. But Lucy has family support that the other Scarborough girls didn't. And also—maybe—she has true love.
