    From the YouTube slam poetry star of Shrinking Women (more than 5 million views!) comes a novel in verse about body image, eating disorders, self-worth, mothers and daughters, and the psychological scars we inherit from our parents. I've listened toMyers slam poem countless times ...

    This is a book that will work for a lot of readers. If you're into verse, I think you should pick this up. Sadly, I don't think it was for me. Novels in verse just hardly ever land for me. I usually like poetry in verse, but after a few of these, I realized they all sounded exactly...

    Will write a review tomorrow. Just saying right now that this book is so beautifully written and no words that I could possibly come up with would equal to how this book made me feel. ...

    Just finished This Impossible Light by Lily Myers and I had tears in my eyes. My heart is still as soft as a marshmallow. I instantly fell in love with this book. It took me about two pages when I felt this warm, loving and exciting rush running through my body, wrapping me up like...

    First things first: I received this book through NetGalley. Trigger warning: eating disorder. Summary: Fifteen-year-old Ivy's world is in flux. Her dad has moved out, her mother is withdrawn, her brother is off at college, and her best friend, Anna, has grown distant. Worst of ...

    This was like a better version if ?the sky between you and me?, which I?m not even going to bother to tag because honestly, I hated it. So this book! I loved it, and I hated it and I was kinda not that interested. But I wish I was. So that?s a good thing? I?m going to put t...

    The book, This Impossible light, by Lily Myers is about a girl who's parents got divorced all of a sudden and it caused a huge problem in her life. It's an unfinished novel but there wasn't any big mistakes I caught. The main character in the story is Ivy. The summer her parents got di...

    *Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion/Review* Heavy, dense, thought-provoking, and hauntingly accurate, Lily Myers takes a look into the dramatic, ugly, and damaging world of eating disorders. The verse is elegant and powerful, and the story line will draw you in. If you are...

    I'm a big fan of "Shrinking Women" and was excited when I learned earlier this year that Myers would have a book coming out. I finally got the chance to read that book today and was once again stunned by the beauty of her careful, precise prose. Ivy's story is a familiar one, with ...

    I thought this novel was done well. I know some people might not like it because it was written in verse but I tend to enjoy novels like this. I thought the Eating disorder rep was done well too. I like how it showed the characters life slowly deteriorating. It was reminiscent to my ow...

    Lily Myers does such a great job of really pulling you into Ivy's head in "This Impossible Light" and showing the way her self-image and sense of stability slowly crumble as she falls deeper into the stages of her eating disorder. This is a quick read, but a very effective one. I love ...

    TW: Eating disorders A difficult read, but I'm really glad I got round to finishing this. This Impossible Light offers a very accurate rep of eating disorders and how quickly they can spiral out of control, as well as highlighting the impact they can have on a person's life and ment...

    If you've not seen the YouTube video of Lily Myers performing her slam poem "Shrinking Woman," stop what you're doing and watch it right now. I added her first novel in verse to my TBR pile as soon as I heard she had a book coming out. While it didn't provoke the same strong reaction I...

    I don?t really read poetry, and sure I?m bad at it as I?m not the kind of reader to linger on every word and phrase (I like to be swept along for a journey), but I really enjoyed this. It was a painful read and the unusual writing amplified this deeply emotional story that wa...

    This was a pretty run-of-the-mill verse novel with a pretty run-of-the-mill issue novel plot. Nothing about it is particularly new or notable. These sorts of generic issue novels need to exist, because time moves on and old generic issue novels end up outdated, but they aren't exactly ...

    Written in verse, this tells the story of 15 year old Ivy as she tries to navigate her way through her parents divorce, her BFF slipping away from her, her body changing, and keeping up appearances as the Smart Girl in school. A poignant tale that I related to on multiple levels. ...

    A beautiful novel in verse dealing with eating disorders, depression, alcohol use and friendship. It?s heavy but hopeful. ...

    4.5 stars ...

    Meh. I fully support the topic of eating disorders, but the execution of it was subpar and cliched. Thankfully, this is a very quick read, (the book is written in verse) so I could get on with my life. This book is about the life of Ivy, whose life is going through So Many Hard Eve...

    **Thanks to NetGalley for providing a free copy of THE IMPOSSIBLE LIGHT in exchange for my honest review** If you're expecting anything similar to Laurie Halse Anderson or Ellen Hopkins, you'll be sorely disappointed. Novels in verse need to be more than prose formatted to look like...

    The story: Ivy is a smart girl, even though her world seems to be crumbling around her. Her parents have divorced, dad has a new girlfriend, her brother has moved out, and her mother seems to be drowning in depression. Worst of all, Ivy feels that she's getting too tall, too round, too...

    Synopsis This Impossible Light is a young adult novel in verse about Ivy, a fifteen year-old whose body betrays her as it grows, takes up the space left behind by her shrinking mother, leaving father, and missing best friend. As Ivy strives to perfection she comes to the seemingly log...

    It's not very easy to review a book that ended up affecting you more than you thought it would. I have nothing but positive things to say about this book. The Impossible Light is a novel in verse that follows a 15 year old girl named Ivy. She just went through what could be the wor...

    I was given an early copy of this book to review by the publisher on Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This Impossible Light is a book written in verse by the spoken-word poet Lily Myers. It talks about themes that include: disordered eating, divorce, depression, anxi...

    Trigger warning: eating disorder. An hour before I was to leave for work, I received This Impossible Light from NetGalley. I downloaded it instantly, a move I would regret immediately ?this is a book you?ll never want to put down. In that moment as I sat on my bed, the clock c...

    First Line: My Mother is made of the bones of birds, p.2. Sometimes having control is dangerous. Ivy?s parents recently went through a divorce, her mother is now reclusive, Ivy?s older brother, Sky, just moved out of the house for college, and her dad is seeing someone new. Ev...

    I'm a big fan of "Shrinking Women" and was excited when I learned earlier this year that Myers would have a book coming out. I finally got the chance to read that book today and was once again stunned by the beauty of her careful, precise prose. Ivy's story is a familiar one, with ...

    Lily Myers does such a great job of really pulling you into Ivy's head in "This Impossible Light" and showing the way her self-image and sense of stability slowly crumble as she falls deeper into the stages of her eating disorder. This is a quick read, but a very effective one. I love ...

    This is a book that will work for a lot of readers. If you're into verse, I think you should pick this up. Sadly, I don't think it was for me. Novels in verse just hardly ever land for me. I usually like poetry in verse, but after a few of these, I realized they all sounded exactly...

    First things first: I received this book through NetGalley. Trigger warning: eating disorder. Summary: Fifteen-year-old Ivy's world is in flux. Her dad has moved out, her mother is withdrawn, her brother is off at college, and her best friend, Anna, has grown distant. Worst of ...

    This was like a better version if ?the sky between you and me?, which I?m not even going to bother to tag because honestly, I hated it. So this book! I loved it, and I hated it and I was kinda not that interested. But I wish I was. So that?s a good thing? I?m going to put t...

    The book, This Impossible light, by Lily Myers is about a girl who's parents got divorced all of a sudden and it caused a huge problem in her life. It's an unfinished novel but there wasn't any big mistakes I caught. The main character in the story is Ivy. The summer her parents got di...

    This was a pretty run-of-the-mill verse novel with a pretty run-of-the-mill issue novel plot. Nothing about it is particularly new or notable. These sorts of generic issue novels need to exist, because time moves on and old generic issue novels end up outdated, but they aren't exactly ...

    Written in verse, this tells the story of 15 year old Ivy as she tries to navigate her way through her parents divorce, her BFF slipping away from her, her body changing, and keeping up appearances as the Smart Girl in school. A poignant tale that I related to on multiple levels. ...

    A beautiful novel in verse dealing with eating disorders, depression, alcohol use and friendship. It?s heavy but hopeful. ...

    Meh. I fully support the topic of eating disorders, but the execution of it was subpar and cliched. Thankfully, this is a very quick read, (the book is written in verse) so I could get on with my life. This book is about the life of Ivy, whose life is going through So Many Hard Eve...

    This Impossible Light is a beautiful story about struggling with your image. A girl is trying very hard to live up to the picture perfect image that she has created for herself, and as a result falls down a very dark path with her physical health. She develops an eating disorder. The p...

    Will write a review tomorrow. Just saying right now that this book is so beautifully written and no words that I could possibly come up with would equal to how this book made me feel. ...

    Just finished This Impossible Light by Lily Myers and I had tears in my eyes. My heart is still as soft as a marshmallow. I instantly fell in love with this book. It took me about two pages when I felt this warm, loving and exciting rush running through my body, wrapping me up like...

    First things first: I received this book through NetGalley. Trigger warning: eating disorder. Summary: Fifteen-year-old Ivy's world is in flux. Her dad has moved out, her mother is withdrawn, her brother is off at college, and her best friend, Anna, has grown distant. Worst of ...

    This was like a better version if ?the sky between you and me?, which I?m not even going to bother to tag because honestly, I hated it. So this book! I loved it, and I hated it and I was kinda not that interested. But I wish I was. So that?s a good thing? I?m going to put t...

    The book, This Impossible light, by Lily Myers is about a girl who's parents got divorced all of a sudden and it caused a huge problem in her life. It's an unfinished novel but there wasn't any big mistakes I caught. The main character in the story is Ivy. The summer her parents got di...

    *Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion/Review* Heavy, dense, thought-provoking, and hauntingly accurate, Lily Myers takes a look into the dramatic, ugly, and damaging world of eating disorders. The verse is elegant and powerful, and the story line will draw you in. If you are...

    I'm a big fan of "Shrinking Women" and was excited when I learned earlier this year that Myers would have a book coming out. I finally got the chance to read that book today and was once again stunned by the beauty of her careful, precise prose. Ivy's story is a familiar one, with ...

    I thought this novel was done well. I know some people might not like it because it was written in verse but I tend to enjoy novels like this. I thought the Eating disorder rep was done well too. I like how it showed the characters life slowly deteriorating. It was reminiscent to my ow...

    Lily Myers does such a great job of really pulling you into Ivy's head in "This Impossible Light" and showing the way her self-image and sense of stability slowly crumble as she falls deeper into the stages of her eating disorder. This is a quick read, but a very effective one. I love ...

    TW: Eating disorders A difficult read, but I'm really glad I got round to finishing this. This Impossible Light offers a very accurate rep of eating disorders and how quickly they can spiral out of control, as well as highlighting the impact they can have on a person's life and ment...

    If you've not seen the YouTube video of Lily Myers performing her slam poem "Shrinking Woman," stop what you're doing and watch it right now. I added her first novel in verse to my TBR pile as soon as I heard she had a book coming out. While it didn't provoke the same strong reaction I...

    I don?t really read poetry, and sure I?m bad at it as I?m not the kind of reader to linger on every word and phrase (I like to be swept along for a journey), but I really enjoyed this. It was a painful read and the unusual writing amplified this deeply emotional story that wa...

    This was a pretty run-of-the-mill verse novel with a pretty run-of-the-mill issue novel plot. Nothing about it is particularly new or notable. These sorts of generic issue novels need to exist, because time moves on and old generic issue novels end up outdated, but they aren't exactly ...

    Written in verse, this tells the story of 15 year old Ivy as she tries to navigate her way through her parents divorce, her BFF slipping away from her, her body changing, and keeping up appearances as the Smart Girl in school. A poignant tale that I related to on multiple levels. ...

    A beautiful novel in verse dealing with eating disorders, depression, alcohol use and friendship. It?s heavy but hopeful. ...

    4.5 stars ...

    Meh. I fully support the topic of eating disorders, but the execution of it was subpar and cliched. Thankfully, this is a very quick read, (the book is written in verse) so I could get on with my life. This book is about the life of Ivy, whose life is going through So Many Hard Eve...

    The story: Ivy is a smart girl, even though her world seems to be crumbling around her. Her parents have divorced, dad has a new girlfriend, her brother has moved out, and her mother seems to be drowning in depression. Worst of all, Ivy feels that she's getting too tall, too round, too...

    Synopsis This Impossible Light is a young adult novel in verse about Ivy, a fifteen year-old whose body betrays her as it grows, takes up the space left behind by her shrinking mother, leaving father, and missing best friend. As Ivy strives to perfection she comes to the seemingly log...

    It's not very easy to review a book that ended up affecting you more than you thought it would. I have nothing but positive things to say about this book. The Impossible Light is a novel in verse that follows a 15 year old girl named Ivy. She just went through what could be the wor...

    I was given an early copy of this book to review by the publisher on Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This Impossible Light is a book written in verse by the spoken-word poet Lily Myers. It talks about themes that include: disordered eating, divorce, depression, anxi...

    From the YouTube slam poetry star of Shrinking Women (more than 5 million views!) comes a novel in verse about body image, eating disorders, self-worth, mothers and daughters, and the psychological scars we inherit from our parents. I've listened toMyers slam poem countless times ...

    I received a digital copy of this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley. Click here to watch my video review of this book: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecLdN... I picked this book up originally as I wanted a quick read, and I had never tried reading a fiction book wri...

    This is a book that will work for a lot of readers. If you're into verse, I think you should pick this up. Sadly, I don't think it was for me. Novels in verse just hardly ever land for me. I usually like poetry in verse, but after a few of these, I realized they all sounded exactly...

    This Impossible Light is a beautiful story about struggling with your image. A girl is trying very hard to live up to the picture perfect image that she has created for herself, and as a result falls down a very dark path with her physical health. She develops an eating disorder. The p...

    Incredibly powerful verse about eating disorders, mother/daughter relationships, and the impact of diverse. Required purchase for middle and high school libraries. ...

    Will write a review tomorrow. Just saying right now that this book is so beautifully written and no words that I could possibly come up with would equal to how this book made me feel. ...

    Just finished This Impossible Light by Lily Myers and I had tears in my eyes. My heart is still as soft as a marshmallow. I instantly fell in love with this book. It took me about two pages when I felt this warm, loving and exciting rush running through my body, wrapping me up like...

    First things first: I received this book through NetGalley. Trigger warning: eating disorder. Summary: Fifteen-year-old Ivy's world is in flux. Her dad has moved out, her mother is withdrawn, her brother is off at college, and her best friend, Anna, has grown distant. Worst of ...

    This was like a better version if ?the sky between you and me?, which I?m not even going to bother to tag because honestly, I hated it. So this book! I loved it, and I hated it and I was kinda not that interested. But I wish I was. So that?s a good thing? I?m going to put t...

    The book, This Impossible light, by Lily Myers is about a girl who's parents got divorced all of a sudden and it caused a huge problem in her life. It's an unfinished novel but there wasn't any big mistakes I caught. The main character in the story is Ivy. The summer her parents got di...

    *Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion/Review* Heavy, dense, thought-provoking, and hauntingly accurate, Lily Myers takes a look into the dramatic, ugly, and damaging world of eating disorders. The verse is elegant and powerful, and the story line will draw you in. If you are...

    I'm a big fan of "Shrinking Women" and was excited when I learned earlier this year that Myers would have a book coming out. I finally got the chance to read that book today and was once again stunned by the beauty of her careful, precise prose. Ivy's story is a familiar one, with ...

    I thought this novel was done well. I know some people might not like it because it was written in verse but I tend to enjoy novels like this. I thought the Eating disorder rep was done well too. I like how it showed the characters life slowly deteriorating. It was reminiscent to my ow...

    Lily Myers does such a great job of really pulling you into Ivy's head in "This Impossible Light" and showing the way her self-image and sense of stability slowly crumble as she falls deeper into the stages of her eating disorder. This is a quick read, but a very effective one. I love ...

    TW: Eating disorders A difficult read, but I'm really glad I got round to finishing this. This Impossible Light offers a very accurate rep of eating disorders and how quickly they can spiral out of control, as well as highlighting the impact they can have on a person's life and ment...

    If you've not seen the YouTube video of Lily Myers performing her slam poem "Shrinking Woman," stop what you're doing and watch it right now. I added her first novel in verse to my TBR pile as soon as I heard she had a book coming out. While it didn't provoke the same strong reaction I...

    I don?t really read poetry, and sure I?m bad at it as I?m not the kind of reader to linger on every word and phrase (I like to be swept along for a journey), but I really enjoyed this. It was a painful read and the unusual writing amplified this deeply emotional story that wa...

    This was a pretty run-of-the-mill verse novel with a pretty run-of-the-mill issue novel plot. Nothing about it is particularly new or notable. These sorts of generic issue novels need to exist, because time moves on and old generic issue novels end up outdated, but they aren't exactly ...

    Written in verse, this tells the story of 15 year old Ivy as she tries to navigate her way through her parents divorce, her BFF slipping away from her, her body changing, and keeping up appearances as the Smart Girl in school. A poignant tale that I related to on multiple levels. ...

    A beautiful novel in verse dealing with eating disorders, depression, alcohol use and friendship. It?s heavy but hopeful. ...

    4.5 stars ...

    Meh. I fully support the topic of eating disorders, but the execution of it was subpar and cliched. Thankfully, this is a very quick read, (the book is written in verse) so I could get on with my life. This book is about the life of Ivy, whose life is going through So Many Hard Eve...

    **Thanks to NetGalley for providing a free copy of THE IMPOSSIBLE LIGHT in exchange for my honest review** If you're expecting anything similar to Laurie Halse Anderson or Ellen Hopkins, you'll be sorely disappointed. Novels in verse need to be more than prose formatted to look like...

    The story: Ivy is a smart girl, even though her world seems to be crumbling around her. Her parents have divorced, dad has a new girlfriend, her brother has moved out, and her mother seems to be drowning in depression. Worst of all, Ivy feels that she's getting too tall, too round, too...

    Synopsis This Impossible Light is a young adult novel in verse about Ivy, a fifteen year-old whose body betrays her as it grows, takes up the space left behind by her shrinking mother, leaving father, and missing best friend. As Ivy strives to perfection she comes to the seemingly log...

    It's not very easy to review a book that ended up affecting you more than you thought it would. I have nothing but positive things to say about this book. The Impossible Light is a novel in verse that follows a 15 year old girl named Ivy. She just went through what could be the wor...

    I was given an early copy of this book to review by the publisher on Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This Impossible Light is a book written in verse by the spoken-word poet Lily Myers. It talks about themes that include: disordered eating, divorce, depression, anxi...

    Trigger warning: eating disorder. An hour before I was to leave for work, I received This Impossible Light from NetGalley. I downloaded it instantly, a move I would regret immediately ?this is a book you?ll never want to put down. In that moment as I sat on my bed, the clock c...
