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 very enjoyable and heartwarming. (I can’t stop laughing at Toby’s emoji language).
I especially appreciate the themes on taking life one day at a time and accepting risks and challenges because these things are really what life is all about. I also love that the story is very realistic and yet it still manages to have fantastical elements to it. You’ll get what I mean when you read the book. And most of all, I love that there are dogs in it, on the cover no less! (It’s one of the reasons I bought the book. ;). I just love Morgan Matson- her kind and wonderful personality that her writing and stories naturally exude.
