“I know how to watch my back. I’m the only one that ever has.”
India Maxwell hasn’t just moved across the country—she’s plummeted to the bottom rung of the social ladder. It’s taken years to cover the mess of her home life with a veneer of popularity. Now she’s living in one of Boston’s wealthiest neighborhoods with her mom’s fiancé and his daughter, Eloise. Thanks to her soon-to-be stepsister’s clique of friends, including Eloise’s gorgeous, arrogant boyfriend Finn, India feels like the one thing she hoped never to be seen as again: trash.
But India’s not alone in struggling to control the secrets of her past. Eloise and Finn, the school’s golden couple, aren’t all they seem to be. In fact, everyone’s life is infinitely more complex than it first appears. And as India grows closer to Finn and befriends Eloise, threatening the facades that hold them together, what’s left are truths that are brutal, beautiful, and big enough to change them forever…

Zoë’s Review

Sam young has long been a go to author for me, it’s not unusual for me to fall in love with her words and the fictional worlds she creates. In that respect I wasn’t surprised that I loved The Impossible Vastness Of Us. What I was surprised about was the fact that her young adult offering, something so different from the characters I normally adore had me so in love with them that my heart ached.

In true Young style she transported me to a world that consumed me. The characters became family to me and I hung on their every word. It was one of those books I could’ve happily devoured in one sitting but I found myself limiting myself half way through, slowing my reading speed to cling on for longer, I really didn’t want to leave Finn and India’s world.

I don’t want to say too much about the plot as you have the blurb for that and I’d hate to give away anymore than is necessary. What I will say is the characters are great, well developed and enjoyable to read. There are secrets and lies a plenty and Young handles serious issues with great consideration.

My heart ached for Finn, India and Elouise their lives were far from easy and they were a stark reminder that appearances can be deceiving. Whilst I’m a sucker for a romance and as much as I loved the romance in this book, the love between friends meant way more to me than who ended up with who. It was an epic example of how far we’ll go to support the ones we love even when that love is purely platonic.

If you want a read that reinstates your faith in friendships and the goodness within then this book is for you.
