The Unexpected Everything

Finished The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson.  I received a copy from the publisher for review.

Summary (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?”

So as you know, I am a huge, HUGE fan of Morgan Matson and have been ever since I read Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour.  That one will likely always be my absolute favorite, but I’ve loved everything else, too, and will even agree that her books get better with each one.

Sooooo yes, this is her best book yet.

There are a lot to love about her books, but I think my absolute favorite is the way that she portrays friendships.  In this one, Andie has a rotating cast of boyfriends and crushes, but her constants are her best friends: Palmer, Bri and Toby (and Palmer’s boyfriend Tom, who is generally forgotten).  And you guys, I loved them.  I would be so happy with companion novels from any of their perspectives, and I would also really love a sequel about Andie and Clark.  (All the books about these people, seriously.)

It made me smile and laugh and cry and there may or may not have been a moment or ten where I hugged my Kindle.  (Shut up; you don’t know my life.)

Like all of her books, this one is highly recommended.
