I was looking forward to reading this book, having enjoyed "The Descendants". I found this novel to be somewhat tedious & the adult characters including Sarah's father behaved like young 20 something's during their trip to Colorado Springs. The female friend of Sarah's seemed highly immature & tried to be someone other than her self. I finished the book, but was disappointed.

"As in her debut novel (The Descendants, adapted into a movie by the same name starring George Clooney), author Kaui Hart Hemmings addresses grief in a strongly depicted setting, only this time it's Colorado. Overwhelmed by her son Cully's death in an avalanche, single mother Sarah St. John can find no meaning in her ordinary activities, until the arrival of a young woman on her doorstep opens her eyes to those around her. Though Sarah's a bit wary of the young woman's claims to a relationship with Cully, the two embark on a trip to Cully's college for a memorial service, accompanied by Sarah's dad, her best friend, and Cully's father. By turns hilarious and touching, the road trip allows each of the well-drawn characters to move forward in some way. Though of especial interest to readers who have faced similar losses, The Possibilities is also an appealing take on parenthood."
