Most Likely by Sarah Watson

Honestly, I think a lot of us are excited for the day that we finally have a woman president. And in the novel “Most Likely”  written by Sarah Watson, we get a glimpse of what that might look like in the future. The plot follows four friends; Cj, Jordan, Martha, and Ava, one of whom will eventually end up holding office. None of the young women know this at the time the book is set, which is the group’s senior year. As the four struggle to find their identities and futures, we as readers are left to speculate who will end up holding office, until the end of the novel. And let’s just say it’s not who I expected!

All four of the main characters are very relatable, especially for young adults like myself. Watson does a fantastic job of showing different perspectives of the same story, while still tying everything together. Because of the switches in perspective, there is never a lull in the storyline, which ended up being one of my favorite things about the novel. And despite that the plot does get a bit hard to follow at times, it always came back together just at the right moments.

About Sophie S.

Hi! I’m Sophie, and I’m a student at Santa Cruz High School. I’ve always loved books. My favorite genres are Realistic Fiction and Fantasy, and a few of my all time favorites are the Percy Jackson series, Most Likely by Sarah Watson, and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. I’m also super interested in journalism, and some of my favorite things to do are to spend time with my friends, dance, read (of course!), and go to the beach!
