The Impossible

Publisher: Quercus Children's Books

Review

Hector Coleman, your average teenager living a normal boring life in a dull town with, let's face it, a rubbish name. Until he and his mates start genetically mutating ... and everything changes. Everything that is, other than his rubbish name and his girl troubles, oh and his embarrassingly low number of social media followers. All those things, unfortunately, stay the same. But at least his life isn't so boring now, which is a good thing, right?

This book is quite something. Paragraphs of your typical teenage angst, occasionally interspersed with sections of graphic novel strips (brilliantly drawn by Bimpe Alliu) and set against a wonderfully weird series of events. A great and unique addition to the sometimes repetitive genre of teen sci-fi.
