In Association with
Girls Most Likely is a story of a lifelong friendship among four African American women. From their coming of age in the 1960s, an era that carried them from colored to black, all the way to their 30th high school reunion, the story follows the friendship through some bitter, sweet, and rocky times with wry humor and remarkable insight.

Our primary narrator is Vaughn, the “girl most likely to write a great American novel.” She takes us all the way through high school and the summer before the girls start college.

This is a book that gives a bit of airtime to every voice in the mix. The other three friends—Reenie, the girl “most likely to marry a prince,” Su, the girl “most likely to be famous” and Audrey, the girl “most likely to rule the world”—all take a turn narrating the rest of the sections before Vaughn concludes.

Most readers will be able to identify with at least one of these characters. These women come from diverse backgrounds, and their personalities are drastically different. Their differences incorporate a wonderful synergy into their relationships with each other, and they form an inspiring bond based on love, respect, and empathy.

Williams has the kind of wise and delightfully engaging voice that makes me want to read everything she’s written. And Girls Most Likely is a compelling reminder of the power of true friendship.
