About THE IMPOSSIBLE VASTNESS OF US:
“I know how to watch my back. I’m the only one that ever has.”
India Maxwell hasn’t just moved across the country—she’s plummeted to the bottom rung of the social ladder. It’s taken years to cover the mess of her home life with a veneer of popularity. Now she’s living in one of Boston’s wealthiest neighborhoods with her mom’s fiancé and his daughter, Eloise. Thanks to her soon-to-be stepsister’s clique of friends, including Eloise’s gorgeous, arrogant boyfriend Finn, India feels like the one thing she hoped never to be seen as again: trash.
But India’s not alone in struggling to control the secrets of her past. Eloise and Finn, the school’s golden couple, aren’t all they seem to be. In fact, everyone’s life is infinitely more complex than it first appears. And as India grows closer to Finn and befriends Eloise, threatening the facades that hold them together, what’s left are truths that are brutal, beautiful, and big enough to change them forever…

I have been a fan of Samantha Young since I read On Dublin Street years ago, and when the opportunity for Young Adult novel from the same author became available I jumped at the chance.
The Impossible Vastness of us is an absorbing look about whom we let in our lives and what happens when we release those fears that have jailed us. The journey of self-discovery between these teens, India, Finn, and Eloise had me riveted to my book. Their actions were authentic and compelling in this story, with twists and secrets that focused on friendships and family.
India moves from California to the east coast when her mother marries a prominent lawyer from Boston. She struggles to fit into her new privileged lifestyle that also includes a step-sister her age. Then she meets this guy named Finn and at first he seems distant and broody but soon you see him in a different light for there is much more there beneath the surface. Together they fit and soon India lets her guard down and lets Finn see the real her.
There is so much more to this story but to delve much further would reveal to much and ruin the experience for people. Although some things may seem predictable and obvious you will be surprised on what will take you of guard and you will be guessing about certain reveals in this book that will definitely keep you engaged
I enjoyed this book and it’s unforgettable characters and feel that Samantha Young did a fine job and will have much more to offer in future Young Adult reads. I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us next and would recommend THE IMPOSSIBLE VASTNESS OF US to anyone in search of an engaging read that isn’t afraid to tackle some serious issues.
