This was a wonderful, refreshing YA with mature characters experiencing that sweet high school romance.Jade and Quentin's interaction from the start had me captivated. Their banter was smart, witty and fun! Jade's mom is in a popular rock band and she has spent her entire life travelling around the world on tours with the band.

    Release Date: June 19, 2018 Genre: Young Adult Romance Actual Rating: 3.5 starsAlmost 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 te...

    I enjoyed every page of this book and I just wish it had been a little longer and perhaps a little deeper at times. Nicole Williams has always had solid YA roots and this contemporary tale with an unusual approach to a trope was pretty fantastic.Jade had a background that I really enjoyed reading about. Her entrance to California for some much-needed roots in her life was refreshing, her home with her aunt, uncle and cousins left me wanting more ...

    Review can also be found on my blog.A few words to describe this book: cute, innocent, quiet, smallIn other words, the perfect summer beach read. It sorta read like a Nicholas Sparks Jr. book. lol Sparks for Teens. Somebody trademark that, quick. You know how in all of Sparks' books, it's pretty quiet and then there's that one twist that you don't see coming? Same story here. I did not see that twist coming at all.I think that the cover of this b...

    2.5 - 3 StarsI picked up this book because it looked and sounded adorable. I’m not a huge fan of realistic YA books, but I do read them from time to time and I enjoy the innocence of the read. The book starts out very cute. Jade is a hippie loving child and her mom is going on tour. Jade has traveled all over the world and she wants to spend one summer in the same home, enjoying the normal teenage dream.I liked Jade. I found her cute, quirky an...

    Let me start off by first saying that in my personal opinion, a 3 star book is a good book and one that I would recommend to people. I find that people cringe when they see 3 star and think the book isn't that great. It's not that, it's more along the lines of the book was a good read, but not one that will stick with me forever.Almost Impossible is a sweet and easy read for just about anyone. There isn't any over the top drama and nothing too ho...

    3.5 / 5 FangsAlmost Impossible was a great summer romance novel! This was the perfect book to pick up when I was craving a contemporary with romance, banter, feels, and some drama sprinkled in!The main character, Jade, was a very likable character. She was a very practical and level-headed girl. I related to her SO HARD when she just wanted to stay inside an read books! She was someone that didn't really take risks if she had any thought of it no...

    I consider myself a lover of YA books, but I've found this category so hit or miss for me lately, that I was beginning to wonder if I'd actually finally aged out of them. With Almost Impossible it became clear to me that I just haven't been lucky enough to pick up the right ones lately. Because this book? It was almost everything I love about YA.I was completely charmed by the smart writing and the sharp, snappy banter between Quentin and Jade. I...

    I've been overwhelmed with emotional reads lately and needed something refreshing to cleanse my palette. I relied on one of my most beloved authors to fill the the bill, and she delivered in the best way. Almost Impossible was delightful and everything I seek in contemporary YA; lovable hero and heroine, adorable setting, strong secondary characters, and a sweet coming of age story, sprinkled with romance. "Some people have to live with what life...

    I know Nicole Williams mostly for her emotional stories, so when I learned she was working on a different kind of book, my inner book nerd was intrigued. Not that I don’t trust the author with writing another great story, but would I personally like it? Almost Impossible tells the story of Jade, who’s going to spend the summer with family to live like a normal teenager for once. And oh, she falls in love. I’ve enjoyed this sweet story very ...

I was pleasantly surprised I even shed some tears at one point near the end because when I started reading this book I was numb.

    It has been a while since I have read a book by Nicole Williams. I forgot how much I love her writing style and the stories she tells. Jade is seventeen years old and has traveled the world with her mom her entire life. She has always been homeschooled and never lived a “normal” life. Her mom is a lead singer in a band so they live on the road and out of suitcases and hotels. The summer before her senior year she wants to spend time in one pl...

    Quentin. Another male character of Nicole’s I had the pleasure of swooning over. Just when I thought I had it all figured out...I did not. Flabbergasted is an understatement. Nicole has the best surprises and I could live off her YA stories. I mean, I’d be hungry, but I’d be satisfied to just read her YA for the rest of time. Jade is happily balanced between a free spirit and a responsible teen. I became emotional along with Jade on her jou...
