The Descendants of one of my all time favorite books. Since reading it, I've been waiting for another book from Kaui Hart Hemmings. The Possibilities is a fantastic book but it never seen to reach the point of greatness as The Descendants does. A solid 4star book with an interesting story.

If you loved The Descendants then you will like The Possibilities, but don't expect a master piece.
