In Nancy Werlin's new Young Adult novel Impossible, which was inspired by the song "Scarborough Fair," Lucy sets out to break the curse. She has help in the form of two foster parents and a devoted young man. But can she do it? Werlin won't spoil the ending when she discusses the novel at Clayton Books (5433D Clayton Rd., Clayton) on Oct. 28. 4 p.m.
