Andie has a plan and she alwayssticks to the plan. Future? A top tier medical school. Dad? Avoid as much as possible (which isn't that hard considering he's a Congressman and never around). Friends? Palmer, Bri, and Toby - pretty much the most awesome people on the planet, who needs anyone else? Relationships? No one's worth more than three weeks. So it's no surprise she's got her summer all planned out too. Until a political scandal cancels her summer pre-med internship, and lands both her and Dad back in the same house for the first time in years. Suddenly she's doing things that aren't Andie at all - working as a dog walker, doing an epic scavenger hunt with her dadand maybe, just maybe, letting the super cute Clark in closer than expected. Palmer, Bri and Toby tell her to embrace all the chaos, but here's the thing ... can she?… (mere)

This was the perfect read for a lazy day at the beach on a warm summer's day. Although it dealt with some serious issues, overall, it was a fun read that often had me giggling, especially at the banter between Andie and Clark, and I was delighted at the continuing story of Marjorie and Karl that they started early in their relationship.. I loved Clark! He was patient, kind, slightly awkward and was the writer of a popular fantasy series. The fact that the author started each part of her novel with his writing was a great idea.

One of this novels strengths was all the wonderful relationships, not just between Clark and Andie, which was extremely cute, but also the relationship Andie had with her father which was a highlight for me. I also loved Andie's friendship group. It was complex and lighthearted at the same time, but the bond between the four girls was solid and they were always there for each other. They were all well-developed with their own quirky personalities and even though they had a break I thought the author handled the ending very well.

Then there were the dogs! They were all loveable but I absolutely adored Bertie, the Great Pyrenees, and was very concerned for him when he was so sick after eating chocolate. I laughed out loud at his antics when it was time for a walk. I could easily picture him in my mind as he raced around the house trying not to get caught, and he won my heart. He was definitely my favourite character (with Clark coming a close second).

The biggest negative for me was the length of this novel. It was looooonnng! Nor was I a fan of Topher. I felt his role was shallow and totally unnecessary. Overall, however, "The Unexpected Everything" was an unexpectedly charming YA novel. ( )

Andie's summer plans come to an abrupt end after her Congressman father's office is investigated for misappropriation of funds. Her medical internship position gets cancelled, so she gets the only job left available this late in the season: walking dogs, about which she know nothing. Even though it seems that everything is going wrong, she realizes that it might turn out okay--all her friends are home this summer, she and her dad are reconnecting, and she meets a guy who just might make it past the three week mark.

I read this book in a hurry.., because I like Morgan Matson's books. They often have witty dialogue and characters I can care about. As I was looking on Goodreads I read the blurb for her next book and caught a reference to it in the one, fun. ( )

Loved this. It would have been excellent beach reading - but I instead listened to it in the car. It's probably overlong - but I didn't care - it was perfect and just what I needed for my commute. What a blissful escape.I really enjoyed the characters. ( )

a cute contemporary, but in my opinion, it was too long. it dragged in unnecessary drama and some parts really really bored me to death. but overall a quick and nice read ( )

I absolutely adored The a Unexpected Everything! I went into it with fairly high expectations, as I loved the author's other book Since You've Been Gone, but this book exceeded those expectations! I think I loved this even more than SYBG!

I stupidly left this review for a month, so I'm a bit vague on the details, but I'll try my best to review this as well as I can.

THE CHARACTERS

I absolutely loved the characters in this! They're all so rich, and Morgan Matson is an absolute genius when it comes to the relationships between them!

- Andie is a likeable main character. Main characters are rarely my favourites, and this book was no exception, but I still quite liked Andie. She was a well developed character. She felt very real, and she was definitely a flawed character. I loved the way she grew and changed over the course of the book.

- I loved the relationship between Andie and her father. He certainly wasn't perfect, but it was really nice to read a parent in YA who was alive and nice. I liked the way their relationship developed, and there was some great scenes with him.

- Andie's friends were... Their relationship was well done, but of the three of them, I only really liked Palmer. She was so much fun, and she was really nice. But then there was Toby and Bri... Toby was annoying. She was whiny, and honestly she was sort of an idiot. I just had no patience for her. And Bri was sort of a jerk. And their fight was dumb, and really annoyed me. Bri was a jerk to hook up with the boy she knew Toby liked, and she definitely shouldn't have lied about it, but Toby acted as if she owned him, just because she liked him, even after he'd told her he didn't like her like that, and she was completely unreasonable about it. The two of them really get on my nerves.

- And then there was Clark. I loved Clark! He was easily my favourite character, and honestly I think he was what made this book for me. He wasn't at all a stereotypical love interest. He was nice. He was nerdy. He was just incredibly awesome! And he was an author, which was super cool to read about. Because I've read about quite a few bookworms, but I don't know when the last time I read about an author was.. And he was homeschooled! I was so excited when I realized this that I interrupted my whole family to tell them! I'm homeschooled, and this is the first book I've ever read with a homeschooled character who wasn't a complete idiot, and so socially awkward it wasn't even funny.
But not Clark. Clark was not an idiot. Clark was, in fact quite smart. And yes, Clark was a bit socially awkward, but hey, so am I. And Clark was socially awkward in an 'I don't quite know what to say to the five different people I've just been introduced to' way, not a 'Because I'm homeschooled I don't know how human interaction works, and therefore am going to make a complete fool of myself and not even realize that what I'm doing isn't normal' way.
Basically, Clark was a normal human. So thank you Morgan Matson, for recognizing that homeschoolers are just the same as everybody else, and not treating homeschooling as a bad thing!

OVER ALL

And yes, I realize it's silly to do a characters section, and not one for any other aspect of the book, but I really don't care. The characters are all I remember about the book right now, so that's all I'm going to talk about.

Anyways, overall, I absolutely loved The Unexpected Everything! The characters swept me up, and I read it in a day. And yes, okay, I admit that part of the reason I love this book so much is just because Clark is homeschooled, but even without that it was an amazing book. ( )
