Beautifully written, utterly compelling, and ultimately hopeful, this young adult novel by the author ofKissing Max Holden, asks—how brave can you be when your relationship is questioned by everyone you love?

The last thing Elise wants is to start over in a new town. But after her brother’s death in Afghanistan, she and her mother move to a sleepy coastal village to be closer to Elise’s sister-in-law and niece.

When Elise meets Mati during a beachside walk, they quickly discover how much they have in common. Mati is new to town, too. Over the course of the summer, their relationship begins to blossom, and what starts out as a friendship becomes so much more.

But as Elise and Mati grow closer, her family becomes more and more uncomfortable with their relationship, and their concerns all center on one fact—Mati is Afghan.

Praise forThe Impossibility of Us:

"The Impossibility of Us runs the gamut, from laughs to swoons, from goosebumps to tears. It’s a soaring, beautiful romance, for sure, but there are also so many powerful messages aboutloss, desertion, racism, tolerance, love, equality, selflessness, friendship, family, and kindness. Touching, well written, and impressively honest,The Impossibility of Us is not to be missed." —Marci Lyn Curtis, author ofThe One Thing andThe Leading Edge of Now
