Review: The Possibility of Us by Lisa Burstein
When I first requested The Possibility of Us I really did not think I would get approved. Once I was approved I quickly realised that I had not read Dear Cassie, and with The Possibility of Us continuing Cassie and Ben's story I knew I had to read it. So after a reading sprint I soon found myself ready to actually make a start on The Possibility of Us.
The Possibility of Us picks us several months after the events of Dear Cassie, only this time Cassie and Ben will be reunited under different circumstances, and not too happy about being tricked into it. I like that we get to see how Cassie and Ben are, and what they are up to. We also get a glimpse into what they did for the initial few weeks after leaving the camp.
I love how Laura and Cassie remain to be friends, and it was funny to actually see Laura talking and even swearing, I din't think I could ever get enough of her. Cassie seems to have mellowed out slightly, and while she still isn't one hundred percent, she is working on it, although her choice of language hasn't improved much. Ben is still a mystery to me,and although her alternates chapters with Cassie I didn't get as much from him as I did Cassie, however that could just be because I had just finished Dear Cassie, which is all Cassie's voice, so I got to see the changes immediately, and more clearly.
The Possibility of Us was a quick read and it only took me a few reading hours to get through it. It was good to catch up with the characters again and see how it all ended, however I don't think I was invested as much in this book as I was the previous ones. That being said, The Possibility of Us was a good addition to Cassie and Ben's story and I had fun seeing how it all ended, more swearing and more smoking included.
