The Unlikelies by Carrie Firestone caught me by surprise. A coming of age story that avoids the band of underdogs against the cool kid clique clinche, it’s refreshing that the teens are just average kids that wouldn’t have met if it wasn’t for the good deeds that they all individually did. Their main goal is just to do small pockets of good in their communities while enjoying their summer before senior year. But when a prominent old man dies and leaves one of them a treasure, things get a little more confusing than expected. After the first three chapters, I was no longer reading about the Unlikelies, I was one of them. A short read, it’s readable in about a day.
