The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Release Date: August 18, 2015
Age Group: Young Adult
Summary: A surprising, utterly romantic companion to My Life Next Door—great for fans of Sarah Dessen and Jenny Han
Tim Mason was The Boy Most Likely To find the liquor cabinet blindfolded, need a liver transplant, and 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 novel is for readers of The Spectacular Now, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, and Paper Towns.
My Thoughts: I really loved My Life Next Door so I was ecstatic to read this one!
This book centers around Tim! You may remember him as Jase’s friend, and a friend of the Garretts. For some reason, I didn’t like Tim as much as Jase. He was alright and he was a good guy overall, I just didn’t feel as drawn to him. And, Tim has started developing a thing for Alice. Remember her as Jase’s sister? Alice and Tim had some amazing chemistry. They also knew deep down that they probably shouldn’t be together but they were so drawn to each other they couldn’t stay away from one another. And they brought out a lot of hidden qualities in each other. Tim is always the wild one and Alice was always laid back taking care of everyone else’s problems.
And, when Tim finally reveals he has feelings for Alice, another hurdle gets in their way, and it isn’t a small one at all! Its crazy and intense. Tim all of a sudden has a new responsibility and he’s trying to take control of his life.
I won’t go into many details but I just want to say I really did like this one, but I just didn’t love it as much as My Life Next Door. But, I was happy to see some of the characters from that one make an appearance in this one. Well, a lot of the characters! I still love the big family and all their shenanigans.
Overall: Glad I got to read this one! I had been waiting a long time! LOL. As soon as I heard about it, I knew I had to read it!!! I will read anything by Fitzpatrick!!! I just adore her books!
Cover: I really do like it! Love the colors and the way they are holding hands!
