Edgy book #2: Impossibe by Nancy Werlin

So my biggest beef with this one is that you have a girl who is a senior in high school marrying a guy who just finished his freshman year of college, and it’s the best thing to ever happen to them, and they are going to live happily ever after.  Now, granted, an evil Elfin Knight and an ancient curse are involved, so I get it. But still, my modern sensibilities rebel against the idea that either of them are as mature as they are portrayed in the book, and that they are going to be in love forever and ever.  However, that said, the story itself was interesting, and I liked that it was based on the lyrics of “Scarborough Fair,” as well as on ancient folktales.   The villain was truly evil; there was an honest portrayal of family support and love, and the protagonist is a strong, intelligent, indepedent young woman.
