The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson | A book review
Summer is coming, and what better way to celebrate it with a Morgan Matson book? I read The Unexpected Everything, the last one I haven’t read by her and here’s the review.
First thing is the synopsis from Goodreads: Andie had it all planned out. When you are a politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised yourself, you learn everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future. Important internship? Check. Amazing friends? Check. Guys? Check (as long as we’re talking no more than three weeks).
But that was before the scandal. Before having to be in the same house with her dad. Before walking an insane number of dogs. That was before Clark and those few months that might change her whole life. Because here’s the thing—if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected. And where’s the fun in that?
My thoughts on The Unexpected Everything
I think we can all agree that Morgan Matson is one of the queens of YA contemporary and with this book she nailed it again.
Andie is a very complex character, who has an amazing development throughout the book. She was incredibly relatable, with her need to plan everything and make to-do lists.
Of course the side characters were amazing too. There’s her group of friends, that made me insanely jealous because who wouldn’t want a tight group like that?! There’s her dad, who has some character development of his own and of course there is Clark.
Clark is my new favorite book boyfriend. He is sweet, a little dorky at times and a writer and just very swoony overall. I was sad the book was over because I wanted more of Clark (not that there wasn’t enough in the book, he’s just that dreamy to me).
The plot was very engaging, sometimes unexpected and a lot of time a bit predictable. Overall it was just a very sweet, light Summer read with a few deeper moments.
⭐⭐⭐⭐Rating: 4 out of 5.
