About the Book:

THE UNLIKELIES

By Carrie Firestone

Publisher: Little, Brown and Company

Release Date: June 6th 2017

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary

Synopsis: Five teens embark on a summer of vigilante good samaritanism in a novel that’s part The Breakfast Club, part The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, and utterly captivating.

Rising high school senior Sadie is bracing herself for a long, lonely, and boring summer. But things take an unexpected turn when she steps in to help rescue a baby in distress and a video of her good deed goes viral.

Suddenly internet-famous, Sadie’s summer changes for the better when she’s introduced to other “hometown heroes.” These five very different teens form an unlikely alliance to secretly right local wrongs, but when they try to help a heroin-using friend, they get in over their heads and discover that there might be truth in the saying “no good deed goes unpunished.” Can Sadie and her new friends make it through the summer with their friendships–and anonymity–intact?

This rich and thought-provoking novel takes on timely issues and timeless experiences with a winning combination of romance, humor, and wisdom.

About the Author

Carrie Firestone has lived in rural, urban, and suburban places, and, while she currently Carrie Firestone.jpg lives in the suburbs, she is decidedly a CITY person. She loves parties, and all kinds of music, and books about random people doing random things in random places. She loves to travel with her husband, and two daughters, Lauren and Emily. When she isn’t writing, you might find her reluctantly sharing her popcorn at the movies, trying to get people (or dogs)  to do a conga line, or adding items to her loose ends list.

review
When I found out I was going to be part of this tour, I screamed a little. I LOVED Carrie Firestone’s first novel, The Loose Ends Listso much so I couldn’t wait to help promote her second one!
Firestone doesn’t disappoint! I loved the way she wrote this one. It’s a different kind of vibe than her first one. The characters in this novel come alive and I wish I had a crew that came together in such an unorthodox way like these! The diversity of the characters are also a really cool aspect of the book – but it’s done in a way where it’s a thing, but not the thing.
The evolution of the characters really made me love this book. The different ways they come together and ultimately fight together made me really enjoy it. My favorite is definitely Sadie. Not only do I love the name Sadie, but throughout the book I feel like she really comes into herself as a person.
One of the major themes, aside from altruism, is growing up and growing apart. Sadie’s struggle to reconcile her new friendships and her old ones, especially with her best friend, really resonated with me. I had to go through something similar this past year because my friends had graduated and I still had one year of high school left.
I highly recommend this book to those looking for a quirky read. This is one perfect for your summer bag!

I chose these songs because they reminded me a lot of the characters and some of them just made me laugh. Hope you enjoy!
