Synopsis: 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?

Thoughts: This one was definitely my "perfect summer read" because it had everything I wanted: summer break, friendship, family, romance, parties, scavenger hunts, pizza, and summer jobs that included lots of dogs. This was my first Morgan Matson book and I must say, I was not disappointed.

Andie does have it all planned out, but life happens, and she has to change her plans last minute and that's when the story really begins.

The book is lengthy, and the writing takes its time to develop the characters and introduce characters, but I loved this about it. It felt like a real summer, which has long days and short nights, which feels like it will drag on forever until it's only a couple weeks from ending, and then sort of speeds up so quickly you almost want to cry cause it's over.

This book felt exactly like that, and while there were some slower parts in the story, I enjoyed it thoroughly and devoured this book in a couple days.

I loved the characters, each unique and they had an amazing friendship. I loved the romance that developed slowly but was fun and passionate, the way many teenage/new adult romances usually are not. I loved the strain in the family, because there was opportunities to change, grow, and develop.

The Unexpected Everything is definitely a great summer read that I recommend everyone who enjoys YA to pick up.
