Like her powerful novel Speak, this new novel by Laurie Halse Anderson touches deep chords about an unresolved past. Seventeen-year-old Hayley Kincairn hopes that her veteran father's nightmarish PSTD has abated enough so that she can enjoy a relatively uneventful senior year at high school, but it hasn't, and there's another complication: Finn, a handsome classmate who has his own share of problems. The Impossible Knife of Memory doesn't sidestep tough issues, but its vivid portrayals and sensitive treatment make this an absorbing and meaningful read.
