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?
“Theoretical crushes could remain perfect and flawless, because you never actually had to find out what that person was really like or deal with the weird way they chewed or anything.”
The Unexpected Everything is my first Morgan Matson book. I actually saw a lot of her published book even when Amy & Roger's Epic Detour came out. But at that time, I honestly did not care any of it and now I felt I have been missing a lot of her books all this time. Suddenly, National Bookstore announced she will be here. It was a call sign to me to get into her books obviously.
From the beginning, the political issues are all there. The conflicts were quite vague and accusations are still not clarified. But even so, Andie's father whole-heartedly accepted the fact of it. The nature of getting into politics is seriously a deep one on me. But I did like how it went all simple and straight-to-the point.
So when it instantaneously hit Andie's life-changing internship, I saw her heart broke. Or maybe her dreams getting grind down into dust. It was a long and deep kind of realization for someone like her when she was used on having all things planned out. It was entertaining with the idea of letting Andie shift into another pace of life. She became this free-spirited girl that needs to stay positive whatever it takes.
Meeting Clark hits all the sparks in me. I can only imagine Clark's shy voice and I already feel myself giggle in a second. He is not the kind of guy that are commonly on contemporary books I've read, Clark is a conservative guy. He's all clean from the start and no pretense on any of it. And I did like how it all went with the outgoing personality of Andie.
The conflicts that the characters had are so realistic. Andie has her father-and-daughter issue with her Dad being in and out of the congress. Clark having a conflict with his ideas as an author, both of them managed to solve what was missing. And I think it was the closure that they needed to the ones that they fear to lose. I was glad how Morgan Matson made the characters pushed their hearts to fight for what they wanted the most.
The Unexpected Everything brings up a full package of falling in love and friendship. Morgan Matson created an art of falling in love in the cutest way! Most importantly, this book gave out the feeling to cherish what a family can do to solve any problems. All it takes is to risk chances, you might never know what to expect, right?
