A novel by

 
 
A compelling story of London's theatre world at the start of the 60s as Josie tries to find success as an actress.
12-year old Josie attends a finishing-style stage school where she is firmly told she has no acting ability. Fortunately she finds herself cast as a boy in an American comedy - but in a case of mistaken identity she is kidnapped and imprisoned in a dockside warehouse. Managing to escape, she and a fellow runaway take refuge in the Theatre Royal, Stratford. They are offered work by the legendary Joan Littlewood, founder of the Theatre Workshop Company. Much to Josie's surprise this leads to a role in a Saturday-morning film. However, the kidnappers haven't given up yet and they are hot on Josie's trail ...
Impossible! is a story that will keep readers enthralled chapter by chapter as the drama unfolds, rather like the film that Josie is in.
