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.
