Turn The Page Tuesday/ Imposible

"Impossible" by Nancy Werlin is written in modern times about a young girl who has become the victim of an ancient curse. Read these pages to find out if she is able to break the impossible curse.

A cryptic warning:
     But then Miranda, with her hands cuffed before her spoke for the first time. "True love," she said distinctly. "Do you even believe in it? I don't. It's a trap."
   Everyone looked at her.
    "What was that, ma'am?" asked the cop.
     Miranda smiled a strange smile. Her eyes went to Lucy's dress, covered with grass stains and blood. To the pink camellia, crushed on Lucy's wrist. And then down to Lucy's sturdy red sneakers, which were supposedly suitable for kicking butt.
      "A trap," Miranda said again. Then she sang. "Else she'll be a true love of  thine."
         Her voice cracked, and now she was speaking again, not singing. "Pay attention," she said. "I've been trying and trying to tell you. Pay attention to the song. Now it's your turn. You've been warned. I'm supposed to warn you. You're allowed to try to escape. You have to try, in fact. None of us have ever managed it, though. Will you be any different?"

This book is written based on the folk song "Scarborough Fair" It certainly makes you think of this tune in a new light.
