Author: Morgan Matson
Genre: YA contemporary
My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
As a matter of fact, this is my first Morgan Matson’s novel and I would certainly say that I enjoyed it. All though at some parts it turned a little too cliche but it still was really relatable overall.
The novel basically revolves around a girl named Andie, who was beyond thrilled when she hears she’s not going to her premed program due her fathers political scandal. She was saddened because she hadn’t thought doing anything else except for the premed that got cancelled at the last minute. That part I liked was that she quickly recovers from this trauma and finds a new summer job which is dog walking. It might not have been useful but it definitely was much more fun. Yet ever so unexpectedly she meets a cute nerd guy, Clark. (Ekkk, he is SO undoubtedly cute and those dimples are to die for. HONESTLY) He instantly became my favourite male character in the novel.
“Because believing you’re not alone is the Cruelest trick of all.”
All the characters were so well-written and the way they progressed throughout the story was so good. The sense of friendship portrayed through the story is priceless. Morgan definitely succeeded in carrying out the message that what a beautiful thing Friendship is. It’s not a fun and joyful but there are times where it can take a different turn.
“If whole galaxies could change, so could I”
The father-daughter relationship is yet another integral part of this book. How it was at the start and gradually it becomes stronger than ever.
The unexpected everything is a ride filled with emotions that make you teary-eyed for once or make you laugh really hard. Enjoy reading, guys. ❤️
