Publisher's Summary

Father of the Bride meets Sixteen Candles in the latest novel from New York Times best-selling author Morgan Matson. 

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, the 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 play only 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.

Loved the narrator

The story was funny and the narrator did a great job telling it. Only reason I gave it a 4 star instead of 5 is because the ending felt rushed

Beautiful family driven story. Beautiful.

The story gave off an impression that this was going to be a romance story with few family aspects. Boy was I wrong it was an amazing family story. I felt even though it was in only one narrative I felt every charactera emotions becase Charlie was such an emotionally carried character. It ia definitely movie written, the book is written as if we they already have gotten a movie deal but eventually I got over it and could finally get into the story. A 4.5/5 read.

Not impressed

This was a long story. I was not aware that book was for young adults but I think that a younger person would not even enjoy this book. The entire book centered around the youngest sibling who acted as if she ran the family. The family mishaps were boring. The wedding was unbelievable and all the things leading up to the wedding were just silly events the author used to add more paves . The narrator was horrible....if you are thinking about getting this book.........save your money

Worth the Credit

This book was filled with so much humor and emotions. The narrator does such a wonderful job, which becoming harder and harder to find lately. Everything that comes out of JJ's mouth is HYSTERICAL! One of my lol moments was at the dinner rehearsal when he has to take the call..lmao.

Charlie loves her family and is so excited for everyone to come back to their house to celebrate her sisters wedding. The story starts out when the wedding plans don't go as smoothly as they should. Charlie steps up trying to balance her family, some romance and a dog name waffle.

Must Read Contemporary

I loved this audiobook. It was funny and heartwarming. Think of it like a comedy and family movie, but so much better than that. I really connected to the Grant family.

A light read

A light, fun read about family and growing up. It is an easy-to-follow audiobook. I really liked the main character Charlie, but I felt her family relied on her too much given that she is the youngest and still in high school.

A free audiobook was provided by Audible. All opinions are my own.

The book that is a movie script

Morgan wrote a movie and it was beautiful. this needs to get picked up by somebody for a movie because it is absolutely perfect! The comedic timing is genius, the family is hysterical, and waffles the dog is my favorite.

Such a Stupid Storyline! Teenager Gets Dumped On

I couldn't even finish this book. Everyone dumps their problems on a teenager for the sister's wedding. Where was the Mom in this fiasco? And can't anyone delegate responsibility to anyone else? Even the grumpy neighbor is her problem? Hated this!

I loved this book!!

I literally fell in love with the entire Grant family. Morgan Matson did a great job giving each character a personality. I couldn't put the book down. I am seriously considering to re-reading the book. The narrator did a great job at narrating the book.

Fun read

It’s a fun read, even though it’s unrealistic at times. Would recomend especially for the summer.
