    She was so young [to have that job] that it was absurd.

    What word was troubling you?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    A good title for your post would have been "absurd". Have you tried looking it up in a dictionary?
