The Summer Of Impossible Things Release: Here’s What You Need To Know. 


Rowan Coleman’s latest novel, The Summer Of Impossible Things, is out later this month. And here is what you need to know about it.

  • It’s significantly longer than her previous works.
  • Expect some time travel throughout the book; it is sort of fantasy/thriller/drama. However, it forms quite an important part of the book.
  • This book will make you cry. Proper big gulpy sobs. Like her other books.
  • Family is the theme at the centre.
  • There’s one narrator, Luna.
  • It’s set in Brooklyn, United States.
  • There are so many twists!
  • What you read may surprise you.

The Summer Of Impossible Things is out later this month, on June 29th.
