All the Impossible Things

“A gorgeous story about the joy that’s possible when we allow hope into our hearts. Wise and wondrous, this is truly a novel to cherish.“
Katherine Applegate, Newbery Award winner and New York Times-bestselling author of Wishtree
“All the Impossible Things touched my heart in the way that only truly fantastic middle-grade lit can. The struggles of a mother’s addiction and a daughter’s loyalty are tempered with love, friendship, and one cool tortoise. This is the perfect book.”
Liz Rice, The Book Cellar, Chicago, IL
“A beautiful, nuanced story of how love and grief can coexist.”
Mariama J. Lockington, author of For Black Girls Like Me
“Painful to read- in a good way.”
*There is actually no proof that Nelson Mandela said this. However, it is widely attributed to him…and sure seems like something he’d say, doesn’t it?!
