My Rating: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
Synopsis from Goodreads:
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?
Note: This review contains an excessive amount of emojis. 😄😋
“You have to take your chances. Go and attempt and see what happens. And even if you fail— especially if you fail—come back with your experience and your hard-won knowledge and a story you can tell. And then later you can say, without regret or hesitation . . . ‘Once, I dared to dare greatly.’ ”
Andie Walker likes being in control, she likes to keep everything organized and plan things ahead. But after the scandal about her father the Congressman 👨, life took an unexpected turn and ruined everything that she planned.
In the sake of salvaging her summer, she attempts to find a last-minute job. She ended-up being a dog walker 🐕🐩🚶, she also then meets a guy named Clark 👦. With her Father now in their house 🏠, her trusty group of friends 👭👭, her unexpected skills on dog walking and a promising start of something with a cute boy 💑— Andie’s summer might not be what she planned but it is unexpectedly the best one she’ll have.
WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK: 🙂🙃
- BECAUSE IT’S A FUN SUMMER READ. ☀🏖😎👌🏻👙
- IT HAS DOGS! I SWEAR YOU MIGHT DIE BECAUSE OF ALL THE CUTENESS AND FLUFFINESS. 🐶🐕🐩😍😍
- It’s not just about finding summer love, the family aspect of this book is really something to look forward to, it also presents a strong story about friendship and relationships in between friends, and the character development of Andie is super relatable and realistic.
- Andie’s group of friends— very hilarious, relatable, and everyone has a significant part in the story. As a teenager in this modern world, I love how this book includes a lot of group messages that I can really relate to. 😄📱❤‼
- TOBY’S EMOJIS. This book contains emojis in a fun and funny way. 😂😂😂🙌🙊🐘🐘
- Clark. I don’t think how can anyone not fall in love with him. Though he was adorably awkward at first, he is also funny and brilliant and he isn’t afraid to show his emotions and lovable. 😍❤❤
He took a breath, then swallowed hard. “I was wondering, you know, what you do. At night.” He stared at me in horror after he said it, like he couldn’t quite believe the words had come out of his mouth. “Oh, man,” he muttered, closing his eyes behind his glasses for a moment. “This isn’t going well.”
This book is definitely a pleasant summer read though I wasn’t entirely engrossed with it (I read it for almost a week, which seems long). The way it was written was also interesting, I liked how some events that happened were only narrated after it happened. I also liked how it allows the reader to see how Andie and Clark’s relationship grow. I absolutely recommend everyone to read this! 💯
[THIS PART CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS!] 🙈🙉🙊
One thing that I really really loved about this book is the snippets from Clark’s books. I love that he’s a novelist (boyfriend goals) and the thing he did with his last book, I was a little emotional because of that. :'(😍❤
One thing that I hated was Topher. 😐😠:evil:😤😵😵🙅🙅
The ending was okay for me, it felt realistic in a way. Though I was hoping that the thing with Bri and Toby would be fixed. But I totally guessed that Andie would consider being a Veterinarian after that job! 👌👌👌
I could do this. If whole galaxies could change, so I could I.
Andie’s character development is really admirable. This book teaches us that we do not have full control in our life. We might not know what will happen in the future but that isn’t a bad thing, we just need to learn to take chances.
In that moment it was like everything else faded away and there was only me and Clark and the possibility of us—whatever we might become—stretching forward in a hundred different directions, all of them unexpected, each one better than the last, the ending not yet written.
The Unexpected Everything is just :mrgreen:😄😅😂😂😂:)😍😍👏👏👍🏻👍🏻💙💙💙
