Charlie Grant’s older sister is getting married this weekend at their family home, and Charlie can’t wait—for the first time in years, all four of her older siblings will be under one roof. Charlie is desperate for one last perfect weekend, before the house is sold and everything changes. The house will be filled with jokes and games and laughs again. Making decisions about things like what college to attend and reuniting with longstanding crush Jesse Foster—all that can wait. She wants to focus on making the weekend perfect.
The only problem? The weekend is shaping up to be an absolute disaster.
There’s the unexpected dog with a penchant for howling, house alarm that won’t stop going off, and a papergirl with a grudge.
There are the relatives who aren’t speaking, the (awful) girl her favorite brother brought home unannounced, and a missing tuxedo.
Not to mention the neighbor who seems to be bent on sabotage and a storm that is bent on drenching everything. The justice of the peace is missing. The band will only play covers. The guests are all crazy. And the wedding planner’s nephew is unexpectedly, distractingly…cute.
Over the course of three ridiculously chaotic days, Charlie will learn more than she ever expected about the family she thought she knew by heart. And she’ll realize that sometimes, trying to keep everything like it was in the past means missing out on the future.
"Save the Date" Reviews
Oh hi, new Morgan Matson book. I had no idea you existed. WHY DID I HAVE NO IDEA YOU EXISTED.
Okay guys I am FREAKING OUT about this now. Sadly it's not 2017, but early 2018 is better than late 2018!! This sounds so adorable, I love weddings and chaos. I'm super surprised that it's only 288 pages though, like whaaattt? I love long contemporaries, but I'm sure this'll still be amazing. I CAN'T EVEN CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT OVER THE COVER REVEAL. This is gonna be one heck of a cover, folks.
I'm gonna go now, bye! Talk to you again once this baby has a cover. Also, I wrote this at 1:45 AM, so that probably explains some things...
ONLY LIKE THREE MORE MONTHS. AND FIRST BATCH IS SIGNED. Too early to start the hype?
I have it in preorder and amazon just sent me change of delivery date from January to June 2018??? What is thisssss.
But honestly, I will read anything this woman writes, even if it's a phone book or a grocery list.
But having to wait a year and a half more? T_T
I loved this SO much and I am very emotional. I think it might’ve knocked Amy & Roger from my #2 spot of favorite MM books.
I won’t really talk in depth about much to spare anyone the waiting but I LOVED the characters, the big family, and all the hijinks.
SO MUCH GOOD STUFF.
Will probably reread and do a video review closer to when the book releases in June.
I love how family oriented this book is! Family always comes first for me and I can definitely relate to Charlie. The chaotic Grant family reminded me of my own family. It wasn’t a full five stars for me because it could’ve had a bit more romance in it. Well, more like I wanted more. Haha I still loved the book and definitely recommend it!
Beautiful. One of my favorite contemporaries in recent memory. This is Morgan Matson's best.
I LOVED the crazy Grant family. Their dialogue and personalities are unmatched. I would have wanted a bit more depth from the parents or more interaction between them and a few of the kids, but I love every bit of what this family represents - their very real struggles and conflicts.
Although I definitely favor Charlie, J.J. is the real MVP.
PLEASE read this fun, hilarious new book as soon as possible.
