Review: Chasing Impossible by Katie McGarry

Series: Pushing the Limits Book #5
Format: ebook
Rating: 4 Stars
How I Got It: Gift with pre-order
Genre: Young Adult, New Adult, Contemporary

Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads

Tough and independent, 17-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 arms’ 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.


Abby's story got this for free because I pre-ordered and registered my copy of Nowhere but Here. More publishers seem to be doing this. And then, I proceeded to put off reading it. I've wanted an Abby story since I met her and I was afraid of being let down.

I did really enjoy the read. I just love Abby so much. But it was nice getting to know Logan, too. This was definitely a super high-stakes story which caused me a huge amount of stress. Now, this is standard for a Katie McGarry, but I had no idea how this story would be resolved. But she handled everything in a completely believable and realistic way.

My only complaint was that I was confused a lot. Abby and Logan both lie or mis-lead a lot so it affects their word choice. So, I was having to constantly decipher what they were saying. It just got frustrating sometimes. I wonder if it would be easier to understand during a re-read. I'm sure I'll find out some day.

Thanks for reading!
