I have been really excited to write this review as this is the first book I have listened to.  Believe me, it was awkward at the beginning but as the first chapter flew by I got used to it and swam through the voice taking in the penmanship of the author. However, audio books can NEVER surpass paperbacks because reading a book has its own significance!

 

 

Summer, friendships, family ties, politics, young adult romance, scavenger-hunting, dog-walking, pizzas, ice-creams; doesn’t these sound exciting?  Well, to me, it sure does. And Morgan Matson has wonderfully packed these into one book to make our time a little interesting. The queen of summer contemporary genre has come up with her fourth book The Unexpected Everything which follows the story of Andie, a seventeen-year old, who has everything planned out for the following summer. She intends to intern at a university which gets called off as her father, a Congressman, gets involved in a political conspiracy and all her plans shatters leaving her and her father together in their house for the first time in years. Incidentally, she takes up a job to walk dogs and comes across Clark, the cutest nerd she has ever met in her life. This summer changes her life; she is walking dogs, doing scavenger hunt with her dad, getting too close to a guy who is irresistibly cute and talented.

 

Is this going to last only for this summer or things might take a drastic turn by the end of it?

 

Is the worst yet to come after summer?

 

Pick this book up and read it if you want a light, fun read. I heard the audio book which was narrated by Bailey Carr, she was excellent, she narrated the dialogues of both the male and female characters really nicely and her voice carried the emotions required to express it. Interestingly, Matson has used quite a few emoticons in the book; I would have to appreciate Bailey Carr as she perfectly expressed those emoticons without the slightest disruption in the flow of the story. Surprisingly, this is the first Morgan Matson book I read or heard. I read Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour a few days back and I am currently reading Second Chance Summer (reviews will be up soon). Honestly, I would not say that I loved the book but I did enjoy it. I found the story too predictable. Anyway, I enjoyed the flow of her writing and obviously CLARK.
