*MOST ANTICIPATED NOVELS OF 2017 SELECTION BY * ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY * BUSTLE * "A sweet, funny, and moving tribute to nerds and misfits everywhere." —Seth Grahame-Smith, New York Times bestselling author of Pride and Prejudice and ZombiesUntil May 1987, fourteen-year-old Billy Marvin of Wetbridge, New Jersey, is a nerd, but a decidedly happy nerd. Afternoons are spent with his buddies, watching copious amounts of television, gorging on Pop-Tarts, debating who would win in a brawl (Rocky Balboa or Freddy Krueger? Bruce Springsteen or Billy Joel? Magnum P.I. Or T.J. Hooker?), and programming video games on his Commodore 64 late into the night. Then Playboy magazine publishes photos of Wheel of Fortune hostess Vanna White, Billy meets expert programmer Mary Zelinsky, and everything changes. A love letter to the 1980s, to the dawn of the computer age, and to adolescence—a time when anything feels possible—The Impossible Fortress will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you remember in exquisite detail what it feels like to love something—or someone—for the very first time.

This is such a light-hearted, funny book! It has great elements that make this story so compelling and a page-turner! The plot is great, the character dynamics are well-written, and it leaves you feeling energetic and hopeful. I cannot wait to see how the movie adaptation will turn out. I have high expectations for it, especially since the screenplay writer is the author himself! I would definitely recommend to those who enjoy coming-of-age stories. This story is filled with meaningful character developments, along with a hint of romance and adventure.
