Review: The Possibility of Now

The Possibility of Now 
by Kim Culbertson

Publication Date: January 26, 2016

Publisher: Point 

THE POSSIBILITY OF NOW tells the story of Mara, a high school junior who becomes over whelmed and disillusioned with her high pressure, overly academic school.  After having a break down in math class, which consequently goes viral, she decides she needs to leave.  She moves from San Diego to live in Lake Tahoe with her biological father, Trip. There, she discovers the freedom of the mountains.  She learns how to ski, and develops close relationships with those around her.  She learns there is more to Trip than it seems, discovers the meaning of true friendship and the possibility of romance. I really enjoyed this book.  I feel like it will be easy for any high school student to connect with the overwhelming academic pressure and worry about college.  This book does a great job of mixing more serious topics and relationships with humor.
