Book Review: Chasing Impossible by Katie McGarry

Chasing Impossible
Author: Katie McGarry
Series: Pushing the Limits (Book 6)
Publication: Harlequin Teen (July 1, 2016)

Description: Tough and independent, seventeen-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 arm's 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: CHASING IMPOSSIBLE is Abby and Logan's story. Abby is the local seventeen-year-old drug dealer. Even her friends don't know why she does that. She is really good at keeping her dealing life separate from her friends. She is constantly hearing from her drug dealing colleagues that having friends is a luxury she can't afford.

Logan is a daredevil always looking for the next thrill. He is keeping some secrets too. He has successfully hidden the fact that he is a Type 1 diabetic from everyone. He has very mixed feelings about his illness. He knows that it is a life sentence and he badly resents that his illness controls his life.

Logan and Abby have an interesting relationship. They are good at teasing each other and egging each other on to do daring things. They are getting close which frightens Abby because she knows that it will make him vulnerable if he catches the attention of her bosses.

Things get very interesting when Abby is shot in a scuffle between two rival drug gangs. She has to share one of her secrets with Logan. Logan mobilizes their other friends to help Abby find a way that she can meet her financial obligations without selling drugs.

This was an excellent story about the kinds of families that are built and not born. I really liked the relationships between all the kids and I loved the romance between Abby and Logan.

Favorite Quote:
Being around Logan was like a hot bath after a cold day, warm sunshine through a window, velvet and silk against skin. It was a strong hand over terrified fingers. A stuffed bunny being held during a restless night. It was wonderful and freeing and losing it is awful.
I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
