Boy Most Likely to by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Surprises abound and sparks ignite in the highly anticipated, utterly romantic companion to My Life Next Door
Tim Mason was The Boy Most Likely To:
- find the liquor cabinet blindfolded
- need a liver transplant
- drive his car into a house
Alice Garrett was The Girl Most Likely To:
- well, not date her little brother’s baggage-burdened best friend, for starters.
For Tim, it wouldn’t be smart to fall for Alice. For Alice, nothing could be scarier than falling for Tim. But Tim has never been known for making the smart choice, and Alice is starting to wonder if the “smart” choice is always the right one. When these two crash into each other, they crash hard.
Then the unexpected consequences of Tim’s wild days come back to shock him. He finds himself in a situation that isn’t all it appears to be, that he never could have predicted . . . but maybe should have.
And Alice is caught in the middle.
Told in Tim’s and Alice’s distinctive, disarming, entirely compelling voices, this return to the world of My Life Next Door is a story about failing first, trying again, and having to decide whether to risk it all once more.
For me this book was only OK. There were a few things that really I didn't like about it which niggled all the way through.
Firstly it included two things I hate about YA fiction. Particularly US YA fiction. Rich kids who are spoilt. I just cannot stand reading about them. It also included an arsehole parent. I hate those too. Therefore from the outset this book was never going to sit right.
The story itself was interesting enough and there were parts I did enjoy but I'm sure I missed stuff because it is so long along since I read the companion novel
All in all not really the book for me
