Praise For The Summer of Impossibilities

**STARRED REVIEW** 

"To Allen’s credit, the story covers potentially toxic elements with grace, humor, and maturity, never getting bogged down or growing maudlin. Instead, it stays firmly rooted in the gentle affection among the characters and their sturdy humanity, which never falters." 

— School Library Journal

"Allen's well-rounded, realistic teen characters grow throughout, and she interlaces the story with complicated relationships that reveal each character's idea of friendship. . . An engaging coming-of-age story."

— Kirkus Review

"The characters’ alternating first-person voices are distinctive, the writing is sharp, and messages about honesty and being oneself add ballast to this satisfying multigenerational story of four girls finding the people they need."

— Publishers Weekly
