CHASING IMPOSSIBLE by Katie McGarry

Synopsis

Tough and independent, 17-year-old Abby lets very few people into her inner circle. It’s common knowledge in her Kentucky town that she deals drugs, but not even her closest friends know why. But when a deal goes south and Abby’s suddenly in danger, she finds herself reluctantly forced to lean on daredevil Logan—a boy whose restless spirit matches her own.

Logan has his own reasons for wanting to keep Abby at arms’ length. But he never expected to find in her the one person who might help him face the demons he’s tried so hard to run from.

Together, Abby and Logan will have to make a decision: let their current circumstances weigh them down forever…or fight for the future they both thought was impossible.

My thoughts

I hate to say that this book disappointed me in a couple of ways. I have read a couple of books that has almost the same plot. I came across this book while I was looking for another Katie McGarry book. I read the synopsis, found a copy, and read it.. for a month. I know, this book now holds the record of the longest time I’ve read a book, and I am hating myself.

Reason number one, I really do like how the author gave justice and make a good character to Abby and Logan. i get how abby gets to sell drugs and logan has a diabetes, but I just didnt liked it that, the writing, kept on describing them. In the beginning, in the middle ( a couple of times, actually), and in the end.

Reason number two, I found the writing either less descriptive or too descriptive or maybe something in between. Yes, as a reader, I should know when to put myself in between the pages, but sometimes, well, most of the time, i really cannot picture what the story would like me to see.

Reason number three, the story ended okay. But it left me hanging with how Eric, Linus, Tommy and her dad ended up to in the story. I mean, were they arrested too? Or did Abby tried to protect them, until the end? I’m really confused.

But then, here’s the reason why I kept reading the story, simply, I wanted to know what will Abby do. To herself, to her drug selling, and to her and Logan and their friends.

I would still give this a second read tho, but not anytime soon.  Still, I’d like to give this book 2.5 stars.
