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 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?
This wasn’t my favorite Morgan Matson book — it doesn’t really stand out from every other plot about the summers of affluent suburban teens. I did like Andie’s group of friends, how her relationship with her father grew, and the story she made up with Clark (the hot best-selling fantasy writer who was one of the better parts of the story). Otherwise, I didn’t feel like there was much of a plot… more like a string of events. It started dragging in the second half, but the last 5% was cute. Morgan Matson’s writing style is still great, though, and her characters feel just as real as ever!
Thank you to the publisher for sending me a review copy.
