“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 the few months that might change her whole life.
But here’s the thing-if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected.
And where’s the fun in that?


The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson, like all of her other books, is set in the fictional town of Stanwich, Connecticut. Morgan Matson is pretty much the queen of summer contemporaries and this book was no exception.

Anyways, the plot of the book is full of excitement and unexpected turns and just amazing! It follows the main character, Andie, who had her summer all planned but things don’t always go to plan…

At the start of the book I was a bit confused about who was who, but when I worked it out at around 2 or 3 chapters in I loved them all! I really liked that all the characters in this book had such different assets and because it was quite a long book, that allowed for lots of character building and it was really fun to see all of the different personalities and how they developed! I think my favourite would have to be Toby because I could really relate to her throughout the book, although, I have no idea why.

What I really liked about the book was that it had so many different aspects, such as family, romance and relationships. Just perfect for a Morgan Matson book!

When I finished this book, I felt like there was something missing, like I had so many questions on what happened between some people and how things turned out, so I’m hoping that we will see some of the characters in future books (like Morgan Matson does with her books and I love that about them!).

With summer nearly over and you’re looking for a summer contemporary to end with I would highly recommend this, so go and pick it up if you haven’t already!
