Sadie is doing all she can to make it through a boring. Her main claim to fame is that her father, Woody, is the local ice cream man. Then one day, while working at the local farmers market, she saves a baby in distress. Sadie then gains local celebrity fame. She’s invited to a local community service awards event. At the event her and the other four honorees(Jean, Gordie, Alice, and Val) decide to do good deeds for those in the community. They call themselves ‘The Unlikelies.’ They do this by spreading anti-trolling messages on social media and giving out cute care package.
The main thing I loved about this book is the positive message it sends. That it’s important to be kind. Doing something small can change someones day.
Another thing that I really enjoyed was the subtle humor. This helped to lighten the mood of the book.
The diversity was well done in ‘The Unlikelies’. Jean is Haitian, Val is Hispanic, and Sadie is half Persian. This really added another dimension to the story. The fact that all the kids came from different backgrounds but came together to ‘do good deeds’ really underscored the positive tone of the book.
The only thing that really left me wanting more was the mystery surrounded Mr.Upton. I wish that his life could have been touched on more. I kept thinking there was an interesting story there.
‘The Unlikelies’ is an all together great read. It has a positive message with an interesting storyline. Would definitely recommend. A must read for teenagers.
