{ARC Review} The Possible

The Possible

Author: Tara Altebrando

What if...no one knows the truth about you? 

It's been thirteen years since Kaylee's infamous birth mother, Crystal, received a life sentence for killing Kaylee's little brother in a fit of rage. Once the center of a cult-following for her apparent telekinetic powers, nowadays nobody's heard of Crystal. Until now, when a reporter shows up at Kaylee's house and turns her life upside down, offering Kaylee the chance to be part of a high-profile podcast investigating claims that Crystal truly did have supernatural mind powers. But these questions lead to disturbing answers as Kaylee is forced to examine her own increasingly strange life, and make sense of certain dark and troubling coincidences... ~Goodreads

I picked this book up on a rainy Sunday morning and finished it in the same afternoon, it was SO intriguing!

I loved how the plot kept me invested. There were so many things that kept hinting at Kaylee having telekinetic powers YET AT THE SAME TIME MAYBE THEY were just coincidences?! I NEEDED TO FIND OUT SO I JUST KEPT FLIP FLIP FLIPPING!

+10 for the Monster High reference!
-11 for the overly obsessive crush Kaylee had on this dude, Bennett. It just seemed out of nowhere, I felt like I was missing a piece of why/how she started having such strong feelings for him? I mean, were we even supposed to LIKE this dude? Because I totally did not.

Kaylee's best friends, on the other hand, were awesome! I love the type of friends who aren't afraid to give the MC shit or tell them when they're being cray. Aiden and Chiara are these friends. As for Kaylee, herself, I liked her well enough. She definitely had some faults (who doesn't!) but she was a pretty decent main character for the most part. 

Overall, I enjoyed the story! If you like a good mysterious page turner, then this one is for you too!

  1. There was an oddly obsessive crush/love situation in her other series too, it brought down points for me too. I can't wait to check this one out Brooke!

  2. Such a pretty cover - even though it doesn't tell me much about the book lol

    Sounds like a fun quickie read.
