Praise for This Impossible Light:

★ ”In an exceptional novel in verse, slam poet Myers debuts with a powerful commentary on maternal inheritance and eating disorders….striking use of the flexibility of free verse…absorbing and evocative.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review 

“Every YA library needs this book.” —VOYA

“Written in evocative verse, with notes of wonder and despair, the cadence flows across and down the pages with grace. Lifted beyond the confines of the problem novel with its lyricism and resonance.” —Kirkus

“This verse novel’s form perfectly mirrors its content as readers move from poem to poem, from thought to thought, following Ivy through the false logic that triggers and sustains her disordered eating—and into the beginning of the much more difficult steps of grief and recovery.” —Horn Book

“The undeniable teen appeal makes it a first purchase for any YA collection.” —School Library Journal

“More than a touching debut, this is a surefire coping companion, too.” —Booklist
