Hello peoples! So today I come to you with my part in the blog tour for The Possibility of Now* by Kim Culbertson! I am doing a review for this book and I will try to be as non spoilery as possible but I make no total promises. Before I get into the review though, let me share with you some book details:
The Possibility of Now* by Kim Culbertson
Release Date: January 26th 2016
Mara James has always been a perfectionist with a plan. But despite years of overachieving at her elite school, Mara didn’t plan on having a total meltdown during her calculus exam. Like a rip-up-the-test-and-get-escorted-out kind of meltdown. And she definitely didn’t plan on never wanting to show her face again.
Mara knows she should go back,only she can’t bring herself to do it. Because suddenly she doesn’t know why she’s been overachieving all these years. So Mara tells her mom she wants to go live with her estranged dad in Tahoe. Maybe in a place like Tahoe, where people go to get away from everyday life, and with a dad like Trick McHale, a ski bum avoiding real life, Mara can figure things out.
Except Tahoe is nothing like she thought it would be. There are awesome new friends and a chance to finally get to know Trick, but there are also still massive amounts of schoolwork. Can Mara find a balance between the future and the now, or will she miss out on both?

Doesn’t it sound awesome?! Now for the review:
So I was really excited for this book as the synopsis sounded awesome in my mind. I’m not sure what exactly made it awesome but I think just everything combined plus the fact that I was looking for more, different books to read was the reason I was so excited. Anyway, I read it and it was beyond awesome; I didn’t want to put it down at all! I mean I had to because I was at the beach and it was vacation but I didn’t want to…The plot was pretty interesting between the meltdown, binders, skiing and friends! The other thing was that I thought there would be a cliche but …well there kind of was a cliche but at the same time it wasn’t full on a cliche as – you know what, I’ll let you figure it out yourself when you read the book ;). The characters were also awesome and the chemistry between each of them was also amazing and I pretty don’t have much anything else to say except fangirling because this book was awesome. I honestly suggest you read it! The other cool thing with the book was the skiing because it brought back a memory of when I tried to ski, emphasis on the ski and then it made me want to ski so that was also awesome…I should probs stop saying awesome but it was awesome…..Anyway, that’s really it! It’s not much but just assume there’s about another page of fangirling and you’re good lo. Now for a not so surprisey surprise; a giveaway!!
