This summer, get ready to believe in Impossible Things with the brand new book from international bestseller, Rowan Coleman, author of The Memory Book, The Other Sister and We Are All Made of Stars

Watching my mother’s face for the first time since the night she died, I am altered. I am unravelled and undone – in one instant becoming a stranger in my own skin.

If you could change the past, would you?

How far would you go to save the person you love?

Devastated by her mother’s suicide, Luna is in New York dealing with her mother’s estate when something impossible happens. She finds herself in 1977 and about to witness a week in her mother’s life that would change it forever.

Luna is about to do everything she can to save her mother's life. Even if it means sacrificing her own.
