The Most Likely Club by Elyssa Friedland
November 1, 2022 (by Kerri Mullen)
The Most Likely Club by Elyssa Friedland was all that and a bag of chips! The story follows four women from their 1997 senior superlatives to their 25-year reunion in 2022 when they take stock of where they are in life (careers, relationships, kids, health). Did they achieve their yearbook’s “Most Likely To…” predictions? Together, they face some hard truths about themselves and each other, and pledge to support each other with new goals for their 40s. This novel truly brought me back to the nineties, literally flooded by memories of friends, fashion, music, and pop culture. My own shared superlative, “Best Buddies,” is still true… going on nearly 40 years of friendship! Overall, I recommend this as a fun read that will surely bring back memories and confirm that you really don’t want to peak in high school. Perfect read for HS reunion season!
