Read The Unlikelies Online Free - One good deed will change everything.
Sadie is not excited for the summer before her senior year. It will be her first without her college-bound best friend and (now ex-)boyfriend by her side, so Sadie braces herself for a long, lonely, and boring season working at a farm stand in the Hamptons. But things take an unexpected turn when Sadie steps in to help rescue a baby in peril and footage of her impromptu good deed goes viral.
As she’s recovering from “the incident” and adjusting to her Internet fame, Sadie receives an invitation to a lunch honoring teem homegrown heroes. The five honorees instantly connect and soon decide to spend their time together righting local wrongs. Sadie and her new friends embark on escalating acts of vigilante Good Samaritanism, but might be in over her heads when they try to help a heroin-addicted friend. Are good intentions enough to hold unlikely friendships—and an even unlikelier new romance—together?

I absolutely loved Carrie Firestone’s debut novel, ‘‘The Loose Ends List,’’ because it was a breath of fresh air; it was original and discussed topics I don’t see being discussed in many YA reads.
It was the perfect summer read for me. So imagine my excitement when her second novel came out. But...

I was intrigued by the synopsis, so I was pretty excited to get into it.
First off, I loved Sadie. Her inner monologue is fantastic. The entire group of characters are interesting and good and I loved how different everyone was. Oh, and Sadie's parents are straight up awesome.
Plot wise, it was h...

I wouldn't have picked this up if I hadn't received an ARC of it because I dont read contemporary. Thankfully, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I probably would have rated this higher if I was into contemporary. Dont let the cover fool you its not exactly a fluffy book. The ice cream rep...

I've just finished reading an ARC of The Unlikelies, and it was every bit as good as I hoped it would be. Fans of Firestone's previous book, The Loose Ends List, will recognize her snappy dialogue and use of a large and varied cast of characters. The Unlikelies, however, is a little lighter in to...

Five teens spend the summer between their junior and senior year confronting bullies and shutting down drug rings....what could be more awesome. The book has been compared to The Breakfast Club, but I don't find that a fair comparison because not one of these five characters is a stereotype--not...

You'll need to add THE UNLIKELIES to your TBR list asap. It's spectacular! Like her debut novel, THE LOOSE ENDS LIST, Firestone concocts an absolute blast of a story with vivid characters, sharp dialogue and even sharper humor. But this is much more than a tale about an "unlikely" crew who bonds...

What a beautiful book. With the outrageous amount of hate being thrown around may it be on social media or real life, this is exactly what we need to read right now. I can't even begin to explain how much I loved this.
Never stop writing, Carrie Firestone.

The Unlikelies is a beautiful story about five unlikeliest of teens. That come together and despite all their different backgrounds they just work. This book is absolutely one of the best books I have ever read. The Unlikelies is exactly what we need in the world right now. The characters are wel...

Though this is not my usual genre, I loved this book.
An incredibly diverse cast, all with their own issues to resolve, beautifully blended with a story about standing for kindness and fighting hatred and bullies. I loved that each character had their flaws and battles to fight.
Though it's a sum...

In short, I will read anything Carrie Firestone writes. Her books are filled with emotion and leave you feeling like a better person than when you started. Thank you NetGalley!
