Sarah Watson's fun, inspiring YA political novel

One president is pulled out of a uniquely qualified pool of contenders in Sarah Watson’s young adult political novel “Most Likely.”

In the sweet and empowering coming-of-age story (out Tuesday) (Little, Brown, 384 pp., ★★★ out of four), a diverse friend group of high school seniors in Cleveland are forging their own very different paths as they try to make the most of their final year together.

There’s Ava (the creative one), CJ (the athlete), Jordan (the journalist) and Martha (the one still searching). Readers learn from the get-go that one of the four girls will go on to become President of the United States, but which one of the four remains a mystery throughout. The single clue: The future POTUS’ married name is Diffenderfer, taken from her high school sweetheart. 

Watson’s debut novel is the perfect followup from the creator of Freeform TV show “The Bold Type,” which chronicles the friendship and work lives of three best friends working at a trendy magazine navigating the digital world. “Most Likely” is a smart, fun and uplifting combination of “Bold Type” and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” Self-discovery and girl power go hand-in-hand.
