Alice Garret is a responsible, reliable girl who has to take care of her financially struggling family because her father was injured in a car wreck. She has to care for her five little siblings and another one is on the way. Between hospital bills and driving her little brother to soccer games how is she supposed to live her own life?
Tim Mason is the complete opposite of Alice. He spends his time drinking, smoking, and hooking up with girls. Finally finished with Tim's irresponsible way of living, Tim's dad gives him a chance to straighten out or he will cut off the flow money he gives Tim. However, a forgotten accident might make Tim lose any hope of getting where he needs to be.
When Alice and Tim start realizing their feelings for each other, they couldn't be more scared of what will come out of it. They are entangled with each other, and are forced to help the other. But how are they supposed to help each other when they can't even solve their own problems?
"The Boy Most Likely To" is filled with relatable characters and real-life problems with twists I couldn't see coming. I immensely enjoyed this story, and the difficulties the characters faced made me realize that everyone has problems, no matter how big or how small.
