and cannot stop thinking about it. Jay Austin, the main character, grew up in a loving home with his mother and his maternal grandparents. He is loved by his family, admired by his friends, classmates and teachers, and adored by the ladies. Equipped with a great personality and an impressive ability to learn anything, he takes off from Charleston, South Carolina to New York City, to spend a summer working before starting college. However, he embarks upon a new life full of twists and turns, glitz and glamour, happiness and tragedy. Most Likely To is a story that delves into the inner workings of what is the human being. Jay, the main character of the book, is someone that you love, respect and simply adore; yet, at the same time, you loathe what he stands for and what he has become. You even fear what he could do if you were to stand in the way of his success. He is a wonderful son, a diligent and dedicated worker and student, and an incredible lover, and all the time cunning, calculating, and terribly deceitful. Yet, you can't help but find yourself enthralled with him. The characters are real; the plot is intriguing; and the ending is a true surprise. Most Likely to is a real page turner. I am so glad that I read this book, and I plan on promoting it to everyone who will listen to me! This is a special book by a spectacular writer!!!!
As a former New Yorker, who lived there in the 60's, there are quiet a few nostaigic moments in Mr. Powell's story, The Palladuim, The Apollo, Mama Leone's, Joe Cuba, Tito Puente,etc. that brought back some of my fond memories of NYC in the 60's.
