Morgan Matson definitely did not disappoint with this book! Filled with books, dogs, ice cream, scavenger hunts, and a swoon-worthy new romantic interest, Clark, The Unexpected Everything was an addictive read. I love the message of this book, learning how to live in the moment, and all of the characters were strong and (some of them) easy to lo

“If whole galaxies could change, so could I. ”

It’s seriously impossible for me not to fall in love with the summer season while reading a Matson book. The Unexpected Everything was exactly what I was looking for right now.
It is the ultimate summer read, filled with hilarious, thrilling, and poignant characters that I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

I thought I wasn’t going to enjoy this one as much as her last book because of the length, but Morgan Matson really knows how to make the pages fly

The Unexpected Everything is the perfect summer read. I forgot we were still in April for a couple of hours.

Seventeen-year-old Andie, daughter of a congressman, is a dog walker.

Well, she didn’t plan on spending her summer running after dogs and making sure these fluffy buddies get their everyday amount of sun and exercise. Hell, she had a secure spot for a pre-med internship… before her letter of recommendation was withdrawn. Now she doesn’t know what to do—and since the best places are already

Clearly the downside of having a theoretical crush on someone you knew nothing about was the crashing realisation that you actually knew nothing about them.

This is my third and favourite read by Matson, despite the 3-star rating. In the past, I have found myself liking Matson's premises and her writing style, but being put off by the immaturity of her characters. In my opinion, they are 17/18 year olds with the "voices" of 12 year olds. Fortunately, that wasn't a problem here.

This is probably my least favorite Morgan Matson book so far, which isn't saying much because I still LOVED IT.
Lots of the elements were even more true to life than her other books, which is something I really appreciated. I loved the friendship and family and romance elements all coming together in one book and really melding well.
Clark is the absolute definition of precious cinnamon roll to good for this world, too pure. HE EMBODIES THE MEME.

Because the law requires me to make some sort of pun about the title here...I MUST SAY, GOOD SIR, THIS WAS AN UNEXPECTED DELIGHT. Except not everything was delightful. But lucky for your precious face, I'm going to have a list of likes and dislikes. But I'm very pleased to say that the book was very sweet and happy. I mean, plus drama and angst in the last 100-pages, but do you know how often I read HAPPY books???? Like 3% of the time. It was refreshing.

This book is so good and it made me cry. Okay, I know, I always say that, but I always cry in books whether it's happy or sad.

You have Andie who's father is a politician and they haven't really spent time together in about 5 years. Andie's mom isn't around but you can read about that in the book. I love Andie's friends. Palmer, Toby and Bri are all best friends with Andie and yes those are girls. :-) They have Tom and Wyatt as the guy f

Well. I finally finished this massive book. It's no secret Morgan is one of my all time favorite authors and so the bar is so high for any of her books. This was the first 4-star read of hers for me. I loved her writing and attention to detail as always, but I struggled to connect to the plot and MC for quite awhile. Ultimately, it started to pick up about 200 pages in, but my favorite parts weren't the main parts (I.e., Andie's relationship with her dad). The book was a lot of fun and has great ...more

What it is about!
This book is a typical Morgan Matson book..meaning it is a wickedly realistic and an awesome contemporary.
This story surrounds the title character Andie (short for Alexandra) as her summer takes a surprising turn. With her summer plans ruined, Andie rushes to find something to do with her summer. Through scandals, love, family and friends this book definitely takes you on a wonderful journey. This story ventures into father-daughter relationships that are REAL, fun an

Maybe 4.5 stars! ;)

As expected from Morgan Matson, it is “Everything Unexpected” and perhaps my most delightful read from the author as to date. It’s the perfect encompassing summer story about family, friendship, relationships, moving on from loss of a loved one, falling in love, making important life decisions and embarking on new adventures. It’s a lot more fun than I expected it to be. Although the story sometimes read a bit like rom-com movies making it a bit predictable, it was still v

"Sometimes we get a little bit of a facade. We think we have people. Family, friends...but in the end, it's just you and the darkness. Everyone leaves eventually, my young friend. It's better, really, to learn it early. This way, you can save yourself some disappointment."


The Unexpected Everything is my first Morgan Matson book. Technically, it's supposed to be the second, because I once tried to read Amy & Roger's Epic Detour but didn't like it then. However, after finishing this one, I

This was very sweet, I loved the message behind it, and come on, how often do we get a 500+ page YA contemporary romance?! The writing was wonderful, as expected and Morgan Matson fans will delight in this (plus it's total nerd girl reading porn - you'll get what I mean when you read it.) Personally though, the romance was just not for me and I never connected to it or the love interest - and since that's the main narrative I really couldn't give it more than 3 stars. I very much enjoyed the fam ...more

Pros:
- DOGS!
- Wholly realistic friendship dynamics
- Hilarious exchanges
- That thing where you're unsure of whether the author is celebrating emojis or mocking them
- A teen author

Cons:
- About 150 pages too long
- Heeeeere, little plot! Come here, little plot! Where have you gone off now, little plot?

The Unexpected Everything was an incredible story of firsts and finding your own feet. Andie seemingly has it all, a wonderful group of friends, living in a beautiful home, intelligent, beautiful but unpretentious. But five years ago, Andie lost both of her parents. Her mother to ovarian cancer, while her father campaigned for the community, a congressman who left nannies and advisors to raise his grieving teen daughter. Now he's home pending the corruption investigation and for Andie, it's too ...more

So what if I liked to be in control of things? Someone had to be, after all. —Andie

The Unexpected Everything was my first encounter with Morgan Matson, and I unexpectedly liked it very much. I nearly loved it, were it not for a few annoying scenes here and there. Nevertheless, I am glad that I gave this book a shot because I found it to be very meaningful.

Love, family, and friendship. These are things that all of us need in life, and Andie's story definitely illustrates this ideology. Andie's su

I can finally say I have a favorite Morgan Matson book.

Family drama + Falling in love + Friendship + Pizza + ice-cream + Summer
Bonus: Dogs

Unexpected Everything contain all of Morgan Matson’s trademark quirks. It is usually a hit or miss for me but, this story surprised me in a delightful way.

At this rate, there is nothing relatively new from Matson. She utilized the same formula. A bunch of privileged white straight teenagers navigating their summer plans. Unfortunately, The Unexpected Everyth
